The Duchess of Cambridge donned a pink Emilia Wickstead dress, retailing at £1,200, as she and Prince William attended the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee luncheon.
   The dress, with a pleated skirt, is from Wickstead’s current collection. (Click here for a photo of the Duchess in this dress on our Tumblr.)
   New Zealand-born Wickstead, in business for four years, has been favoured by a number of celebrities, including Dannii Minogue, and the wife of the British Prime Minister, Samantha Cameron. She is a Central St Martin’s graduate.
   Last month, the Duchess had chosen an outfit by Rebecca Taylor, another New Zealand-born designer.
   The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince Harry, and Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie were present at the luncheon.
   The Sovereigns’ Lunch at Windsor Castle is said to be the biggest gathering of royal heads of state since the Queen Mother’s funeral in 2002, according to media.
   It was not without controversy, as there were demonstrations outside Buckingham Palace, where Prince Charles would later host a dinner, over some of the names on the guest list.
   Though advised by the Foreign Office, there were criticisms over invitations being extended to heads of state and representatives of Bahrain, Swaziland, Saudi Arabia and Kuwait.
   Prince Albert II of Monaco and Princess Charlene, who were married the same year as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, were among the many guests.
   The two royal couples shared plenty of conversation. The Duke and Duchess also chatted in depth to King Abdullah II of Jordan and Queen Rania.
   There were 98 in total attending the luncheon, including 62 royals, divided into tables of up to 12. The reception was held in the Waterloo Chamber before lunch was served in St George’s Hall, according to Buckingham Palace.
