Senior royals ‘out-glitzed’ Harry and Meghan last night as they hosted a dazzling reception at Buckingham Palace.
While the Sussexes were attending an awards ceremony in New York, the King, Queen Consort and the Prince and Princess of Wales dusted off their finest tiaras for the annual white tie diplomatic corps reception at Buckingham Palace.
Camilla, 75, looked stunning in an Anna Valentine gown with the Queen’s much-loved sapphire and diamond tiara with its matching necklace.
Meanwhile the Princess of Wales wore a red lace dress by Jenny Packham with the Lotus Flower tiara she has on occasions worn before.

She had her GCVO and Royal Family orders pinned to her dress and sported a pair of Queen Elizabeth’s diamond earrings.
It was the first time the reception, which sees up to 2,000 guests descend on the palace, has been held since 2019 because of the Covid pandemic.
The reception, which usually takes place annually, sees the monarch invite the diplomatic corps to an event in the State Rooms at Buckingham Palace.
The reception celebrates the presence in London of one of the largest diplomatic corps in the world and sees the King and Queen meet representatives of countries accredited to the Court of St. James.
The last reception for the diplomatic corps was hosted by Queen Elizabeth II at Buckingham Palace in December 2019.
