Kate lingered with Charles and Camilla to greet guests; in an interesting move, she wore the very same pink Emilia Wickstead coat dress she dawned just 11 days ago at Windsor Castle, during a Jubilee lunch hosted by the queen for foreign royals.
“I’ve worn it before, as you probably all know,” Kate openly commented, according to The Express.
The Duchess continued, saying “It’s very nerve-racking facing such a sea of people, but great fun. Everyone looks so pretty dressed up.”
Kate was told of some recent statistical findings—that the average guest at a Buckingham Palace garden party will consume 14 cakes and sandwiches.“Gosh, no, really? Well, I had better see what I can do about that,” she said.
The approximately 8,000 guests at the party were invited from all walks of life, nominated by institutions, charities or businesses.
