Several members of the royal family showed up to support Queen Elizabeth, but it was especially Duchess of Cambridge who caught everyone’s attention.

Catherine literally sparkled in a gorgeous dress from the house of Erdem and earrings by Indian designer Anita Dongre.

For her part, the 90-year-old monarch wore a Stewart Parvin violet dress.

William and Kate were able to interact with their guests, besides exhibits from past royal visits, documents from the Royal Library, and a buffet of specialties inspired by the Indian gastronomy.
