After joining the Queen at the Chelsea Flower Show yesterday, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were back by her side this afternoon for the second garden party of the year at Buckingham Palace.
The garden parties are a staple on the royal calendar with Her Majesty hosting a few each year in late Spring on the grounds of Buckingham Palace and the Palace of Holyroodhouse.
The Duchess stepped out in a new bespoke creation by Alexander McQueen.
The design is a modified version of the label's 'Samurai' Skirt Coat which Kate owns in ivory. The double-breasted front and flap pockets remain, but ruffles of the Samurai coat have been replaced with pleats on this new style.
Kate also donned a new custom pink headpiece by Juliette Botterill.
It is the milliner's Rose & Feather Knot Disc Percher Hat (£570) adorned with a rose and arrow feather with silk abaca bow detail to the back.
Kate accessorized with familiar pieces including her blush Loeffler Randall 'Tab' Lizard-Effect Leather Clutch and praline Gianvito Rossi 'Gianvito 105' Suede Pumps.
She finished the elegant ensemble with Princess Diana's Collingwood pearl and diamond earrings.
The Duchess of Cambridge was back at the Chelsea Flower Show to join local schoolchildren for some outdoor activities, including reed boat baking and marshmallow toasting in her 'Back to Nature garden.
Kate looked casual yet chic in a white broderie-anglaise shirt and tan culottes. More outfit details below.
TOP: NEW! M.i.h Jeans 'Mabel' white broderie-anglaise cotton shirt (£255).
PANTS: NEW! Massimo Dutti Buttoned Culottes.
BELT: NEW! Massimo Dutti braided leather belt (sold out).

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge shared some new photos of their family as they visited the 'Back to Nature Garden' at the Chelsea Flower Show.
The garden, co-designed by the Duchess of Cambridge with Davies White Landscape Architects, and in partnership with the Royal Horticultural Society, is a woodland setting for families and communities to come together and connect with nature.
Over the past months, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis have helped their mum gather moss, leaves and twigs to help decorate the Back to Nature Garden.
Today, Kate took her family on a tour of the lush space.
Prince George clearly loved it!
For today’s special visit to the Chelsea Flower Show, the Duchess wore a print dress from Swedish womenswear retailer, & Other Stories. It is a brand we have not previously seen her sport.
The style is the label's Floral Ruffled Maxi Dress (£79) - featuring long sleeves, and a mardarin collar with button up front. The fabric and lining are both 100% polyester. Thanks to @Japanese_Ginger for the ID via Twitter.
The style is also available in a shorter length, the Floral Ruffled Mini-Dress (£49).
On her feet, Kate wore a new pair of espadrilles, the Casteñer 'Carina' 80 wedge in brown suede (US$170). The shoe has a jute toe and wedge heel, and cotton heel cup. The vamp is done in suede and it is finished with matching suede ankle ties.
Another new addition was a budget pair of earring from Accessorize. They are the £8 Polly Petal Drop Earrings. With thanks to @regalreplikate for the ID.
I'll conclude with my favorite photo showing an excited Prince Louis as he runs along a wooden path carrying a branch.
The Duchess of Cambridge was back at the Chelsea Flower Show this afternoon for the official preview ahead of the public opening tomorrow.
She was joined by Prince William, the Queen and other members of the Royal Family.
Kate took the Queen on a tour of her 'Back to Nature' garden.
The Duchess of Cambridge gave us a sneak peek of her “Back to Nature” garden project for this year’s Chelsea Flower Show.
The garden, co-designed with Davies White Landscape Architects, in partnership with the Royal Horticultural Society, includes a swing seat, hanging below the garden’s centrepiece, a high platform tree house.
The garden is filled with incredible edibles, plants for craft activities, forest scents and a diverse range of plants, shrubs and trees of different heights and textures.
In one set of photos, Kate wore an aqua linen shirt by Jaeger. The timeless shirt is crafted using 100% linen and boasts sleeve detailing and a breast pocket. Thanks to @HrhUKate on Twitter for the find!
In the tree-top photo, Kate wore a striped ruffle neck tee from Pippa's closet.
The top is by UK high-street brand, Warehouse.
The Duchess wore her Berghaus Supalite II Goretex Tech Boots.
She teamed them with Campbell's of Ardara Donegal Mountain Walking Socks.
Kate wore her Mulberry braided belt which was identified during the 2016 Royal Tour of Canada.
It appears she finished the look with her KIKI Lauren Yellow Gold Diamond Pave Leaf Earrings and Cartier Ballon Bleu Watch.
