Kate Middleton: A Graceful Appearance At The UN Climate Change Conference

Kate Middleton made an astonishing appearance at the reception of the UN Climate Change Conference, wearing an exquisite color called "royal blue."

The Duchess of Cambridge attended the event alongside her husband, Prince William. For this special occasion, Kate Middleton wore a blue gown from London-based fashion brand Eponine’s spring 2020 collection. The ankle-length dress featured square shoulders, a wrap front, and a belt with two black buttons.

One Twitter user, retweeted by WhatKateWore, pointed out that the dress featured in an Instagram post 87 weeks ago. "Makes sense for sustainability. She's probably had this piece a while," the user wrote.

Kate Middleton Paid A Tribute To Her Grandmother

The duchess paired her dress with navy blue, pointed-toe suede pumps. She also wore her Poppy Code Breakers Brooch, a piece of jewelry considered to be a tribute to her grandmother, Valerie Glassborow, who served in World War II as a code breaker at Bletchley Park, the primary center for Allied code-breaking during the war, wwd.com wrote.

Her husband, Prince William wore a navy blue suit to match his wife's shoes, and also sported a poppy pin.

For their final stop of the evening, Kate and William headed to an official reception for the delegates of COP26 where they joined British prime minister Boris Johnson, and Prince William's father and stepmother, Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall.

Queen Elizabeth Couldn't Attend The Event

The Queen was originally scheduled to join them for the event but she canceled the plan as the doctors urged her to rest for two weeks. Nevertheless, Her Majesty was "present" through a video message in which she called on world leaders to forget about political differences for the sake of common interests.

The Cambridges posted about the reception on their joint Instagram: "The #EarthshotPrize finalists will also meet members of the Prize’s Global Alliance, some of the world’s largest corporations, philanthropists and not for profits — who will provide unparalleled support to the Prize Finalists to help scale their solutions."

The duke and duchess also posted a photo of themselves laughing casually with Prince Charles and Camilla Parker-Bowles, as well as some frames from Queen Elizabeth's recorded message.

The event was attended by the top officials of the UN member states, including Joe Biden, Boris Johnson, Angela Merkel, Justin Trudeau.

Earlier, the Dukes of Cambridge met with a children’s scout group at Alexandra Park.
