On Thursday, the Prince and Princess of Wales received Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden and Prince Daniel at Windsor Castle, who are currently on an official visit to London.
Kate wore a new teal green Emilia Wickstead midi dress, featuring a familiar silhouette. This custom design is rooted in the 'Kate' style, for which the Princess possesses variations in lavender, royal blue and a square-neck version in green, as shown below.
She finished the look with Princess Diana's Cabochon Sapphire Drop Earrings.
Thursday evening saw the presence of the Prince and Princess of Wales at the Royal Albert Hall for the Royal Variety Performance.

On Tuesday morning, The Prince and Princess of Wales greeted the President of the Republic of Korea, Yoon Suk Yeol, and his wife, Kim Keon Hee, at their hotel in central London, on behalf of The King.
The royal couple then travelled with The President and the First Lady to Horse Guards Parade for the Ceremonial Welcome where they were formally received by King Charles III and Queen Camilla.
Afterwards, the President and First Lady joined The King and The Queen Consort, and The Prince and Princess of Wales for a carriage procession along The Mall to Buckingham Palace for a tour and private lunch.
Kate elegantly showcased a harmonious blend of new and previously worn pieces by Catherine Walker. Adorned in a captivating scarlet red, her ensemble featured a knee-length dress paired with the 'Beau Tie' coat from 2021, topped off with a chic new cape coat, creating a sophisticated three-layered look.
The Princess complemented the outfit with a new wide-brim felt hat.
It's a custom design by Jane Taylor, and @Emma4AboutRoyal suggests it's based on the milliner's 'Decima' style.
The Princess accessorized with her Miu Miu bow-embellished suede bag.
On her feet were her red Gianvito Rossi 105 suede pumps.
Kate completed the elegant ensemble with Princess Diana's Cabochon Sapphire Drop Earrings.
Tonight, the British Royal Family rolled out the red carpet for South Korea's President Yoon Suk Yeol and his wife Kim Keon Hee, who are on a three-day State visit to the United Kingdom.
King Charles III held a State banquet at Buckingham Palace in their honor, attended by the Prince and Princess of Wales and various members of the Royal family.
This was Kate's sixth State dinner, and tonight, she wore an elegant ivory gown by Jenny Packham featuring embroidered short drape sleeves.
The dress appears to be a customized version based on the designer's 'Anemone' gown ($4,834) from the Spring/Summer 24 resort collection, available in black and light pink. The gold floral embroidered beadwork on Kate's sleeves appears to be less intricate and detailed than that on the off-the-rack models.
Kate complemented the gown with matching custom Paula Rowan Montserrat Satin Opera Gloves and was seen carrying her ivory Anya Hindmarch Maud Pearl-Embellished Satin Clutch Bag.
The Princess wore the Royal Victorian Order sash and badge, along with the Maltese Cross.
Affixed to the left side of her dress was the Royal Family Order of Queen Elizabeth II.
We also saw the return of Queen Elizabeth II's diamond orbital pendant earrings.
The most significant detail of tonight's outfit was undoubtedly the Strathmore Rose Tiara, which had not been worn for nearly a century! This diadem, once owned by Queen Elizabeth (Queen Mother), was a wedding gift from her father, the Earl of Strathmore, when she, then Lady Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon, married the Duke of York, who later became King George VI, in 1923.
This tiara was crafted in the late 1800s and acquired from Catchpole & Williams. It showcases a garland of roses made from rose-cut diamonds, set in silver and gold. The pavé-set diamond roses are detachable and can be used as individual brooches. The tiara is designed with two different frames, allowing it to be worn either on top of the head or across the forehead in the bandeau style popular during the 1920s, as seen on Lady Elizabeth (shown below).
