Kate, wearing a pale pink Emilia Wickstead dress with pleated skirts, which she paired with blush-colored Prada court shoes, chatted to international royal guests including the King Abdullah II of Jordan and his wife, Queen Rania, and Queen Margarita of Bulgaria. Other royals at the lunch included the Emperor and Empress of Japan, Queen Margrethe II of Denmark and the King and Queen of Sweden. The King of Bahrain also attended the lunch, with his invitation attracting some protest in the U.K. due to his regime’s alleged human rights abuses.
