Thank you for those pictures; it's so rare that we get to see young James. He's just adorable as is Louise.

I love James' jumper vest, he looks adorable. Louise appears to be wearing a blazer commonly used for equestrianism in England.

Today, May 22, the first Buckingham Palace garden party for 2012 has taken place!


Queen Elizabeth, the Duke of Edinburgh, the Duke of York, Princess Anne, the Duke of Kent, Prince and Princess
Michael of Kent, Princess Alexandra and the Duchess of Gloucester attended, so it's surely been a great start
into the season

The lady on pic 5 is famous US television journalist Katie Couric.

Thanks for the pictures, iceflower.
ITN has a video from the garden party; the general atmosphere was quite relaxed. Home - ITNSource News

Was Katie Couric there to film the event for her upcoming programme on the Diamond Jubilee? I know William and Harry have been interviewed for it, but I suppose she'll need some footage of the Queen herself.

Her presence reminds me that Barbara Walters was invited to the reception for the press held at BP late last year. She turned it down because she felt there would be hundreds of people there and she'd only get to shake HM's hand. In the end, the Queen was joined by the DoE, PoW, Camilla, William and Kate, who all spent time chatting with the guests. I'll bet she regretted saying no.

My colleague from work was there today, she sent me a photo of her in the gardens AND said she had put in a good word for me with The Queen about Prince Harry. (In my dreams!)

A lot of Royals attended, what a turn out.

My friend went to the garden party yesterday & described it as an unforgettable experience. She got to speak to Princess Michael Of Kent who she said looked wonderful. The Queen, resplendent in pink, spent over an hour being introduced to guests which given her age & the heat is quite remarkable. Fantastic organistation, wonderful music and yummy cakes. Guests were able to wander through the extensive grounds - no corgies in sight but some feeding bowls in a summerhouse! I'm green with jealousy.

She is there today, wearing the same pink Emilia Wickstead dress (and pink Jane Corbett hat, it has been reported) that she wore to the lunch for foreign royals a week or two ago. Still waiting for some photos, though!

Yes, she is there right now. She is wearing her pink dress (wore it before at the lunch at Buckingham Palace) and a big pink hat.

I like the hat and the ribbon on her hair, but don't think I like the pointy tip on the hat. But it complements her dress beautifully.

Loads of picture in the Gallery from Daylife.

- The Queen
- The Duchess of Cambridge
- The Duchess of Cornwall and the Duchess of Cambridge

Pince Philip, Prince Charles, The Countess of Wessex, Princess Anne, Prince and Princess Michael of Kent, Duke of Kent, Duke and Duchess of Gloucester, and Princess Alexandra were also there. You can see them in this picture (unfortunately, from the back).

Thrifty Kate gets her money's worth out of £1,200 designer dress as she recycles Jubilee lunch outfit for Palace garden party
Quote:
The Duchess of Cambridge notched up another landmark in her life as a royal as she shone at her first Buckingham Palace garden party. And for the auspicious occasion, clever Kate demonstrated her thrifty side by giving a second outing to the £1,200 Emilia Wickstead dress she wore for the Royal Sovereign's lunch in honour of the Queen's Jubilee at Windsor Castle two weeks ago.
The Queen has recycled her entire attire, as did Camilla (including her wedding hat). But apparently, that's not worth mentioning.
