Her Royal Highness the Princess of Wales (Kate Middleton) chose an appropriately sparkly dress for a glitzy event: her father-in-law King Charles III’s 75th birthday.
The royal soiree, held at Clarence House in London, was not attended by the Duke and Duchess of
Montecito Sussex, though apparently Harry and his dad had a “warm” phone call for the occasion, and grandkids Archie and Lilibet made a “happy birthday” video. Cute. Prince William, of course, was there with his wife and wore a black tuxedo. You can see a pic of the pair leaving the event here.
Okay, so the dress. Long-sleeve with a high collar and covered in beads. It’s the Alicia Scallop Gown from Needle & Thread, and though the green version is no longer available, you can snag your own in pale pink or white-gold version for $1,089. Since there’s no full-body pic of her look (yet), let’s all take a moment to remember and appreciate another time she shimmered in green, when she visited Ireland and wore a dress from the trendy brand Vampire’s Wife.
