State Dinner with Xi Jinping

Our dear William and Kate partook in three engagements this week. Kate attended her first state dinner, which is quite an achievement, and she looked fabulous while doing it:

She wore a custom Jenny Packham dress in red (no doubt paying homage to the Chinese president) with red bead detailing on the bust. She also wore two diamond bracelets and earrings loaned from the queen, and the stunning 'Papyrus' tiara, also known as the Lotus Flower, which was gifted to the Queen Mother as a necklace which she then had turned into a tiara.

Kate was seated next to the president himself and Mr Wang Huning, a senior advisor to Xi Jinping. William was further down the table seated with Madame Peng.

Here we see a full view of the dress:

The reception was private and most of the dinner was, so the general population is privy to very little, but this was the menu, released by Buckingham Palace:

Here we see her arriving at the event, and a close-up on her earrings.

They both looked lovely and like they had a good time!
