Today, several members of the British royal family gathered at Buckingham Palace to attend the second of the annual spring garden parties, celebrating those who have made contributions to their communities.
The Duchess of Cambridge and the Earl and Countess of Wessex led the royal group at Wednesday’s garden party.
The Queen’s cousin, Princess Alexandra, was also in attendance at the garden party.
The royals mingled with the other attendees at the party, chatting with people about their public service achievements and community contributions. Here, the Duchess of Cambridge poses for a photograph with one young guest.
The Earl and Countess of Wessex also made their way through the crowd, chatting with guests along the way.
Princess Alexandra was photographed looking through a scrapbook with one guest. The book featured a news clipping of Alexandra as a young princess.
All of the royals dressed in their spring finest for the event. Kate wore bold coral pink: a coat dress by Emilia Wickstead with a Jane Taylor hat (previously worn at Trooping the Colour in 2017).
She added to the monochromatic look with her jewelry, choosing a pair of earrings from her collection of Kiki McDonough jewelry.
These are the Kiki Classic Hoops in White Gold with Cushion-Cut Morganite Drops. The earrings have been in Kate’s jewelry box for many years.
Sophie Wessex wore a floral printed dress and coordinating accessories for the garden party.
She accessorized with diamond earrings from Collins & Sons, as well as a necklace with a pearl pendant. She wore the same pendant on a longer necklace at Royal Ascot last year.
Her other jewels included bracelets and her engagement and wedding rings.
Princess Alexandra wore a pink and green polka-dotted dress, plus a pink jacket and coordinating hat, for the event.
She accessorized with favorite pieces of jewelry: diamond and pearl cluster earrings, her pearl choker with the geometric diamond clasp, and a gorgeous diamond brooch. She recently wore the same jewels at the Commonwealth Day Service in March.
And finally, a little jewelry content for the gentlemen! The Earl of Wessex wore a special tie pin. The small pin appears to be in the form of a monogram used by his grandfather, King George VI (GVIR). He wore the same tie pin last year at Royal Ascot.
