Kate Middleton sure knows how to host a garden party in style. On Saturday, the Duchess of Cambridge took time to throw a children's tea party at Buckingham Palace—and it was nothing short of charming.
Although she marked the occasion in the same See by Chloé dress she wore during her tour in Canada, it wasn't Kate's outfit that stole the attention. Along with Prince William and Prince Harry, the Duchess dedicated the party to about 850 children whose parents died while serving in Britain's armed forces—and it marked a beautiful day for all who participated.
After welcoming the families and children from organizations like Child Bereavement UK and Scotty's Little Soldiers, Kate herself got in on the action. The royals joined the kids as they indulged in some face-painting, tried their tiny hands at plate-spinning, decorated cupcakes and played with a water balloon slingshot.
At the end, the RAF Falcons parachute display team provided entertainment with an air show. Prince Harry also delivered an emotional speech for the guests.
"Today was organized to celebrate you guys," he said. "We're here to remind you that we, as a family and as a nation, will never ever forget the sacrifices that all of you here have made. I can assure you that Buckingham Palace gardens have not seen this much fun ever."
With everyone all smiles, the party looked just as important for Kate and the gang as it was for the kids. Our hearts!
