Here is the guest of honor.  

The Prince of Wales as well as the Duchess of Cornwall are shown in a photo taken at Clarence home this evening just before the party. The Duchess is wearing a rich navy gown by Bruce Oldfield.

The birthday bash was hosted by The Queen; during the festivities she delivered a toast to her son. much more from The Telegraph:

She spoke as monarch, host and, most importantly, mother. as well as in some of her warmest words about the Prince of Wales on record, she might clearly not have been prouder.

In a toast to celebrate the Prince’s 70th birthday, the Queen has delivered a fond, heartfelt tribute to her son: an “heir to the throne to stand comparison with any type of in history” and, she joked, a true “Duchy Original”.

Her words, in a household not known for their gushing sentiments in public, were remarkable, coming at a dinner in the ballroom of Buckingham Palace thrown in the Prince’s honour.

“It is a privilege for any type of mom to be able to suggest a toast to her child on his 70th birthday,” the Queen said in a toast. “It means that you have lived long sufficient to see your kid grow up. It is rather like – to utilize an analogy I am specific will discover favour – planting a tree as well as being able to watch it grow.

Earlier today the couple carried out engagements. right here you see them arriving at Spencer home for a function; HRH is carrying a balloon as well as birthday gift from Rebecca English (The everyday Mail), Hannah Furness (The everyday Telegraph) as well as Valentine low (The Times of London).

From Rebecca’s everyday Mail story:

Charles was handed the balloon as well as a £5.99 bottle of ‘Hot Nuts’ grey squirrel repellent in a bag by the everyday Mail’s Rebecca English, along with her fellow royal correspondents Hannah Furness as well as Valentine Low. The Prince of Wales laughed as well as joked: ‘Where do you discover these awful things?!’

This people story includes thoughts from HRH on the milestone birthday:

Ahead of the royal bash, Prince Charles opened up to reporters about what it feels like tobe 70 years old. “I’m not sure. It’s rather like indigestion. ‘Many pleased returns’ are not rather the exact same as you get older,” he said.

Now for a better look at what Kate wore this evening.

She was in a pink one-shouldered gown.

It featured softly layered petals of fabric, in what looks something like a silk chiffon.

Another view as the Duke as well as Duchess leave Buckingham Palace. In this closeup, we see that the material at the take on is not what is utilized for the full gown; it changes to a different material at the bodice.

You can see a touch of tulle on the bodice in Mark Stewart’s picture above, as well as these close-ups.

Knowing the Duchess typically turns to a handful of designers for events like this, numerous of us are leaning toward the possibility of a bespoke style from Jenny Packham. Laura noted the S/S 2019 collection includes a number of pieces featuring ruffles. There are a number of other great possibilities, like Alexander McQueen as well as Temperley London. We will continue hunting for pieces with similar style elements to the few we have seen of Kate’s dress.

Many recognized the earrings worn by the Duchess. Most just recently they were seen at the 2018 BAFTA Awards.

Below, another view from the BAFTAs as well as a look at them when very first worn to the 100 Women in Hedge Funds dinner in 2011, although they are barely visible in the photos from that night.

It’s been suggested the earrings are quartz or possibly morganite. They are not pieces on lending from HM; it’s possible they were a wedding event gift.

Kate’s hair was in an elegant updo that looked terrific.


Thursday, Nov 15: The gown is *not* a Jenny Packham creation; HeavenQRF received confirmation of that info today.

We don’t understand about shoes or other accessories since of the lack of photos. We’ll update the publish if we discover anything new about the gown or jewelry. We’ll leave you with this montage of images of Prince Charles with the years.
