It was the Duchess’ second engagement of the day. She was, originally, scheduled to attend the third party on Thursday, but Kate had a last minute schedule change her and, instead, attended today.

The Duchess of Cambridge made her way around and chatted to guests in the gardens. All members of the royal family in attendance made every effort to walk to different areas of the grounds so that they could speak to as many members of the public as possible, and later rejoined at the royal tea tent.

Kate shopped her closet and opted for her bespoke, slim-fitting, nude lace shift dress with a white sheath underlay by Alexander McQueen. The dress had full-length sleeves, an accented waist, and ladylike knee-length hemline.

You may recall that the Duchess had previously worn the frock to the St Paul’s Jubilee church service in 2012. The only noticeable difference was that the ribbon belt had been removed.

Kate teamed her dress with a matching bespoke Jane Corbett hat, made especially for the occasion, a pair of new, nude patent pointed heels (not yet ID’ed), and her nude patent ‘Park Avenu’e clutch from Russell & Bromley.
