Kate's Glamorous in Pink as the Queen Leads Touching Tributes for Charles' 70th Birthday!

It's been one of the most anticipated royal events of the year. Tonight the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge joined the Royal family, relatives and friends to celebrate Prince Charles' 70th birthday with a glittering bash hosted by Her Majesty at Buckingham Palace.


Royal photographer James Whatling was on hand outside Kensington Palace to capture photographs of departures ahead of the party. The Duke and Duchess spent the day in South Yorkshire before returning to London to get ready.


The black-tie affair saw the royals in all their finery for the milestone birthday. Although these images are being circulated around the globe, it was very much a family affair tonight.


Harry and Meghan leaving Kensington Palace.


Mark Stewart photographed a selection of arrivals including Lady Helen Taylor, the Earl of Snowdon and the Grand Duke and Duchess of Luxembourg.


A host of European royals were in attendance. The Norwegian Palace shared a photo of King Harald, Queen Sonja, Crown Prince Haakon and Crown Princess Mette-Marit before the party. Both the Queen and the Crown Princess look terrific. Last month, Mette-Marit revealed she was diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis. Mette-Marit said: "For a number of years, I have had health challenges on a regular basis, and now we know more about what these are, although such a diagnosis will limit my life at times, I'm glad that the disease has been discovered so early. My goal is still to work and participate in the official programme as much as possible." It was wonderful to see her there tonight looking so well.


The Danish royal palace shared a look at elegant Crown Princess Mary and Crown Prince Frederick.


Catherine Walker posted a photo of Lady Frederick Windsor in one of their gorgeous gowns.


Clarence House shared this lovely photo of Charles and Camilla leaving their residence.


Her Majesty paid tribute to her son and heir in an incredibly heartfelt and touching speech: “It is a privilege for any mother to be able to propose a toast to her son on his 70th birthday. It means that you have lived long enough to see your child grow up. It is rather like - to use an analogy I am certain will find favour - planting a tree and being able to watch it grow. My mother saw me turn 70, of course. And she was heard to observe that 70 is exactly the age when the number of candles on your cake finally exceeds the amount of breath you have to blow them out.


"Over his 70 years, Philip and I have seen Charles become a champion of conservation and the arts, a great charitable leader - a dedicated and respected heir to the throne, to stand comparison with any in history - and a wonderful father.


"Most of all, sustained by his wife Camilla, he is his own man, passionate and creative. So this toast is to wish a Happy Birthday to my son, in every respect a Duchy original.


"To you, Charles. To the Prince of Wales."


Duchy Originals is a company which the Prince of Wales set up in 1990, principally to sell organic food products. Since then, it has become established as a leading organic and natural food brand.  In 2010 the brand went into partnership with Waitrose. The Duchy Originals biscuits are a particular favourite; a splendid joke from Her Majesty.


In celebration of Charles' birthday, this week’s issue of  Country Life has been guest edited by the Prince of Wales. The magazine included a contribution from Prince William. William said: "His unwavering commitment to rural issues and the countryside has been a big inspiration to me and something I am keen to emulate and teach my children about." William jokingly added: "He is completely infatuated by the red squirrels that live around the Birkhall estate in Scotland - to the extent that he’s given them names and is allowing them into the house!"


Earlier today, the King's Troop Royal Horse Artillery fired a 41-gun Royal Salute to celebrate Prince Charles' 70th birthday in Green Park, central London.



A very nice video with highlights from the future king's 70th year.


The Duchess looked magnificent tonight. The gown (from what we can see), the hair and make, the earrings... Earlier in the post I noted, despite the gravitas of the event, it is essentially a family affair: the celebration of a son, father, brother, husband and friend as much as a future sovereign. I often feel at family events we get a glimpse into Kate's 'off duty' style. The Duchess wore a one shoulder gown with rose shaped ruffles in a beautiful pink hue.


This Mark Stewart image offers a slightly better look.


Heaven received confirmation from Jenny Packham it is not one of their designs. Marchesa could be another contender. Laura shared a look at their 3D Floral Gown and Harini posted a Resort 2018 design.


A closer look at Kate's elaborate updo.


The Duchess wore her dazzling pink earrings.


Kate wore the statement earrings for the 100 Women in Hedge Funds Gala in 2011 and again for the BAFTAs in 2016. Their provenance is unknown. The Palace confirmed previously they are not on loan from the Queen. I expect it's highly possible they were a wedding gift.


Unfortunately, it seems we will not see a family portrait from the evening as many of us hoped would be the case. Rebecca English said the Palace confirmed photos wouldn't be released. Hopefully Kate will re-wear the gown, perhaps for a future State banquet. I hope the entire family had a wonderful night.

    1. Interesting point anoym. Kate never seemed sad or boring to me, but definitely there is something on your observation. For my part, I have three "eras" that stand out for me in terms of Kate's radiance/sparkle: just after the wedding, first pregnancy and NOW! Now in capital letters because at each of her outings after coming back from maternity leave with Louis I am left gasping for my breath, lol.
      Can't wait (or hope to) see some nice pictures from the evening!

    3. I also notice a difference! I see her fashion as a reflection of the changing times in the royal family and her increased role. To me, she is making choices befitting a Queen Consort. This in no way diminishes how elegant and appropriate she has always looked in her role, but there is just an added level of polish lately that I've really been enjoying. Charlotte, what do you think about doing a "metamorphosis" post? :)

    4. I think it's because she took a longer maternity leave this time. She looks awesome!

    2. It does make you wonder if the children get to see her all dressed up before she leaves. That would be so awesome, especially when she is wearing a tiara to a State Banquet. I would love to be a fly on the wall when it dawns on George, Charlotte, and Louis who they actually are and that Charlotte will get to dress up and wear jewels like her Mom's one day.

  27. Gorgeous. However why does her hairdresser use hairnets? She uses pieces to make the buns and between bobby pins and hair sprays and styling products her hair should stay in place without a net.

  29. That hair!!!😍😍😍😍 wowza that looks incredible. Chic, interesting, dramatic.
    This look (to me) makes it look like there is “work Kate” then “off duty Kate” she looks regal, but that fact that there is no tiara, no formality in terms of representing the crown, she goes trendy and youthful. Just my two cents. This is a private party and Kate was like “make me a sexy goddess please!!” Love it

  34. Her hairstyle is absolutely STUNNING!!! The dress looks like it is one-shouldered. I hope some eagle-eyed people can identify it. I wonder if we will get to see the family arriving like in this short video from Prince Charles 60th birthday:

  35. I must say I am pleased to see Kate wearing something outside her usual silhouette and careful V-neck.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Look at that hair ladies!! Are you happy!? I love her hair swept back from her forehead. She has worn it that way so seldom.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Might I just add that perhaps Kate is so confident and content looking as she may now perhaps feel her family is complete. I feel there is a sense of achievement and accomplishment in her manner and she can now relax and enjoy her engagements with William and they can enjoy being a couple again without thoughts of expanding their family. I think she feels a sense of renewed energy as her body is now her own again and that phase of her life is complete. Pregnancies, childbirth and nurturing are all very demanding and time consuming if you like to be a hands on parent so I feel congratulations is in order as her children looked very confident and happy.

    1. That's an interesting theory! It makes sense in some ways that she would choose to invest in more high fashion choices if she wasn't anticipating pregnancy.

  41. Everyone is speculating on all the changes with Kate and it is very obvious. We are all witnessing the changing of the guard right before our very eyes. The Queen is taking a step back for Charles to step up. William and Catherine are preparing to become the new Prince and Princess of Wales.

      Some organic advertising is real and I think Duchy Original is one of those. The biscuits are very tasty. I believe he is not pretending when he claims that he cares about the environment. Speaking up gets him lots of abuse so why would he do it unless he cares?

  44. Those earrings are incredible and love what little we can see of the dress. Sylvia agree her make up looks fantastic.
    Seeing some photos of the other guests and of Charles and Camilla the event looks like gorgeous "fancy" dress but with that let us have a fun party feel to it because it is not an official affair. How fun.

  48. I love this look! Are we sure those earrings aren't Morganite or Kunzite or some similar pink stone? I may be mistaken, but if those central pear-shaped stones are pink diamonds, they would be among the biggest pink diamonds in the world. The world's biggest pink diamond just sold this week for $50 million, and it fits on a ring (almost 19 carats). They're gorgeous earrings, but I don't think the center stones are diamonds (they also don't seem to sparkle in the way diamonds would).

Happy birthday, Prince Charles and may God bless you with many more healthy happy years. Thanks, Charlotte.

  53. I may be premature, tomorrow may well bring a surprise family photo but I can't help feeling that if the Norwegian royal family could pose for a photo, why couldn't the BRF, especially on such a special occasion? Yes, PC released the photo of himself with Camilla, his sons and their wives, but how special would it be to see a photo of him with his parents as well?

  59. If you go to Mark Stewart's Twitter page you can see another four inches of Kate's dress. The rosettes are clustered over the shoulder, and beneath them is a gathering of sheer fabric of the silk/crepe type over the bust. I can only imagine how gorgeous the full length version looks given Kate's ability to wear such a pink.

    Could it be that Catherine changed hairdresser ? This hairdo seems great , no heavy messy bun in a hairnet’, but a real elegant updo , second time in a few days she has such a great way of having her hair !
    Do we know if Prince Philip was in attendance ?
    The Queen’s Speech is absolutely brilliant and loving , and in her usual way she strengthens the family bond and enhances Charles’s future as a king with Camilla on her side as his best support , and that final joke .... I love it !

    ReplyDelete
  62. Kate looks amazing! I hope she will re-wear this gown so we see it in full. I was glad to see her wearing a seatbelt, as sometimes when they are sitting in the back we do not see seatbelts in the photos. Also, if William was driving, does it mean he didn't drink at the party?

    ReplyDelete
  63. Top of my list of royal peeves are car shots - first - they are horribly unflattering - look at poor Helen Taylor who really is a very attractive woman and the others don't fare much better. The only person who looks good is Kate. Even there on her and Meghan the harsh light picks up their use of bronzer and makes it seem heavy. Camilla looks massively older in the car than she does in the presumably touched up formal portrait.
    Second - the car shots highlight that the public is being excluded - we're reduced not to being implied guests such as we were at Eugenie's wedding for instance, and Frederic's birthday party in Denmark, but voyeurs.
    Third - the party and the birthday was heavily hyped - and then nothing - no good photos.
    Fourth - The royals don't seem comfortable with the car shots - especially the drivers.
    Fifth - It encourages a pap feel to the family - making it that much harder for the public to decide what are acceptable pap photos and what aren't. Authorised photos remove that ambiguity.

    So Nobody wins with car shots. Not the public - not the royals.

    So the best for me would be how it has been done for private parties for the Scandinavian royals - allow limited controlled photos by established photographers as the royal guests enter - either at the carriage entrance or if that seems too red carpet as people walk in. Then the party can carry on privately. Eugenie's wedding shows the public likes and becomes engaged when photos like this are allowed. And with good lighting and a chance for the photographers to take decent photos - the royals themselves look better - with emphasis on whole outfits - not where earrings came from.
    From what we can see Kate - a car shot pro (a dress you can see a bit of the top of, good earrings, fancy hairstyle) looks very elegant. The queen's speech was charming although without good photos - and given the unfortunate timing - didn't get much play in the news. For us, it was something of an anticlimax to the build-up to the birthday - but the royals hopefully had a happy party. And I still hope - faintly, dimly, more photos will turn up eventually.

    2. I agree with you Julia. Car shots are not ideal, although both Duchesses look pretty good. I would prefer one group shot or receiving line pictures similar to what the European royals do. I am also curious to know why the British royals are so stingy when it comes to photos of important events such as this.

      Delete
    3. I completely agree Julia. In fact, in one of Mark Stewart's photos it looked like Harry was trying to shield his eyes from glare. Seeing the European royals, I can't help feeling--much as I have grown up with, and admired, the Queen--that it is time for Charles to step into the title for which he has been groomed. The DOE has retired, deservedly so, and gets flak for not being with the Queen on important occasions. But if the Queen were to retire as well, they could both go about their pursuits with no criticisms (or at least I would hope there would be no criticisms.) Yes, she made a vow to her country but now that Charles is 70, an age where many men actually retire, she could show her trust in him by giving the throne to him. Just as they have enjoyed watching Charles grow into manhood, I would think that the Queen would enjoy seeing him become the kind of king she has groomed him to be. Her own mother was a great example. Or so I think anyway. I am sure my opinion will not be a popular one though.

      Delete
    4. Great post, Julia. I really am baffled by the stinginess of pictures at these events. It would be so simple to have a few handpicked media as they walk into the room like all the other European Royal Family do rather than this awkward car shots which are often unflattering, clearly not safe for the drivers and which as you accurately pointed out create an air of separation between the have and have-nots rather than make people feel included particularly for this occasion when so much effort has been expended to garner goodwill towards Charles and Camilla.

      Delete
    5. I see where your coming from Julia. I thought they would release a formal group shot to include the royal guests. It's PR 101, no? And why would Clarence House pass on such an obvious opportunity? Unless they do so in the near future..? Perhaps to be included in the Queen's Christmas message...?

  67. What a wonderful happy family occasion, Prince Charles celebrating his 70th birthday with both parents in attendance. A heartfelt tribute from The Queen acknowleding his support for charity, the environment and social issues, and especially mentioning Camilla.
    The Duchess of Cambridge looked absolutely stunning, since her return to public life after maternity leave she has looked amazing and appropriate for each event that she has attended.
    How comforting for The Queen knowing that Charles and Camilla will carry on her legacy and William and Catherine as Prince and Princess of Wales will be in the future uphold the traditions of family and service to others.

  71. Just a comment on the 70th. The reporters were told there were no photos but surprises to come perhaps footage of the night or even a commeration book. Chris Jackson took all the formal released photos and he has just published a photographic book Modern Monarchy. So perhaps he had a commission for the 70th. Thank you Charlotte as always for the interesting post

  72. Kate looks GORGEOUS. Love this updo -- I hope she's changed hair stylists for good.

    I do hope this isn't a Marchesa dress, though. As much as I love Georgina Chapman's designs, I cannot stomach that brand after everything with Harvey Weinstein.
