Kate Middleton has worn a series of chic outfits throughout the Platinum Jubilee weekend and her choice for Party at the Palace was no exception. The Duchess of Cambridge wore a £420 white crepe midi dress by Self Portrait which features a belted jacket and gauzy pleated skirt.
She completed her look with glistening statement silver earrings and a silver cross and glossy waved hair, a more relaxed look than some of her formal outfits over the course of the weekend.
Kate, 40, was at the event with husband William and her two oldest children George and Charlotte. The family listened to more than two hours of music including a finale from Diana Ross and contributions from Diversity, Rod Stewart and Queen.

They were also seen laughing along to host Lee Mack’s jokes and William also took to the stage to pay tribute to his grandmother. A light and drone show, with images from the Queen’s 70 year reign projected on to Buckingham Palace, made the show particularly spectacular.
The Cambridges had spent the day at Cardiff Castle where they greeted members of the public and spoke to performers who were taking part in Jubilee celebrations. Kate had worn a vibrant orange dress for the visit with her hair scooped back into a tight ponytail.
It was Princess Charlotte’s first Royal visit and she seemed to take it in her stride, at one point having a go at conducting some musicians and fooling around with big brother George.
Kate’s most striking outfit of the weekend was a lemon yellow dress designed by Emilia Wickstead which she wore to a service of thanksgiving at St Paul’s on Friday. It is estimated to have cost around £3,000 and was teamed with a Philip Treacy hat in the same colour.
