The Royal Couple Attend a Tea Party in Kuala Lumpur


The Royal Couple sped off to their next function on Day Four of their Asia Tour. It was a stop at the British High Commission in Kuala Lumpur for a Diamond Jubilee tea party. They sipped tea and chatted to several guests including shoe designer Jimmy Choo.

The Duke and the Duchess also watched a traditional Malay tea pouring ceremony before heading to the next leg of their south east Asia tour.


Kate wore a beautiful ice blue and white lace Temperley London Aster Flower dress from the AW12 collection. A perfect choice for a tea party.


The dress was available in black and gold at Harrods for £1,550. As of this writing, sleizes 8 & 10 are still available. Description from the Harrods website

The Duchess completed her outfit with her nude LK Bennett Sledge heels and the unidentified earrings we saw earlier in the day.


Kate had her hair pulled up in an elegant bun – a different style than earlier – with delicate pearl-headed pins to hold it in place.


After the tea party, William and Kate boarded a flight Kota Kinabalu in Sabah (Sabah is a Malaysian State on the island of Borneo).
