There was quite the royal gathering today at Windsor Castle, with over two dozen of the world’s other kings and queens (plus a sultan, grand duke and emperor!) celebrating Queen Elizabeth‘s Diamond Jubilee. While the thought of making small talk with a room of very important strangers might make most of us weak in the knees, by all accounts Kate Middleton brought her usual charms to the lunch event. The duchess, wearing a pastel-pink knee-length pleated dress by Emilia Wickstead, chatted with everyone from the King of Bulgaria to Princess Charlene of Monaco. Her outfit also demanded the return of the infamous sheer tights—while bare legs may be okay on the polo fields, it’s clear that they do not fit the “lounge suit” dress code that was in effect. And because Kate is all about coordination, her low-heeled shoes and minaudière matched the outfit perfectly: both were pink satin and by Prada.
