The Duchess of Cambridge and Duchess of Sussex have come together for their first joint engagement for the first time since Christmas Day.
Royals arrived at Buckingham Palace for the reception thrown by the Queen in tribute to Prince Charles’ 50th-anniversary celebrations being invested as Prince of Wales.
Charles was created the Prince of Wales at the age of nine, on July 26 1958, and was formally invested with the title at Caernarfon Castle by the Queen on July 1 1969.
Meghan who is expecting a child donned an Amanda Wakeley white coat over a metallic brocade knee-length dress. She paired the look with nude heels and a metallic clutch.
Kate opted for a pale green dress with ruffled sleeves and a high neck with button details. She wore cream heels and carried a matching pastel bespoke clutch.
The Queen arrived wearing a purple brocade blazer and a lilac polka dot dress by Stuart Parvin, an amethyst and diamond brooch and her trademark Launer London bag.
At the party, leading figures from Wales and a selection of Welsh charities and organizations and businesses were represented, including some of Charles’ patronages, such as the Prince’s Trust Cymru.
Kate and Meghan were last pictured on Christmas Day at Sandringham where they joined the royal family for the annual church service.
There were rumours that Kate and Meghan’s ‘differing personalities’ were said to be at the centre of the rift.
But a source told The Sun at the time: ‘’They were chuckling along together. You wouldn’t know there was any tension between the two. It was a wonderful day and night.’’
Rumours of a royal rift between the Duchess of Sussex and Duchess of Cambridge began swirling after news emerged that Meghan and Harry will move away from Kensington Palace to make their home 25 miles away from the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge in Windsor.
However, royal insiders have insisted that there has been no falling out between the Cambridge and the Sussex, but admitted the pair are ‘very different people’.
A source previously told the Daily Mail’s Rebecca English: ‘’While there are some tensions behind the scenes, Kate is pretty unflappable and nothing has become bad enough to make Harry and Meghan want to move out.’’
‘’People are genuinely pleased to see them so happy. The truth is that there simply isn’t enough room at Kensington Palace for them and I know they have been looking at Windsor as a since before the wedding.’’
