June 9, 2023
The royals are stepping up their social skills ahead of the big coronation weekend.
Catherine, Princess of Wales, was spotted on a walkabout in London today, during which she met well-wishers outside Buckingham Palace and attended a Realm Governors General and Prime Ministers Lunch.

For the occasion, Kate looked lovely in a white midi dress with black details at the collar and waist. She paired the elegant long-sleeve piece with black slingback pumps with a bow at the back by Aquazzura, and diamond-and-pearl drop earrings. The royal had her hair styled down in silky waves and opted for bronzy makeup.
Photos from the day of engagements show Kate chatting with people on the street and taking selfies with them. She was also seen conversing with figures at the luncheon.

Later in the day, Kate swapped outfits to attend a Buckingham Palace reception for foreign heads of state. She wore a bright cobalt blue dress with twisted ruching details across the bodice, gold buttons, and a matching tiny belt attached to the waist.
During the event, she was photographed with first lady Dr. Jill Biden and Ukraine’s first lady Olena Zelenska.

Kate also participated in some pre-coronation activities yesterday. She and husband Prince William went for a walk in London and took the Tube to Dog & Duck Pub in Soho to hear how the bar is preparing for the big coronation weekend. (The popular pub is just a mile from Buckingham Palace, and is certain to get an influx of customers during the coronation festivities this weekend.) For the outing, Kate wore a stunning poppy red coat dress by Eponine London and white accessories.
King Charles III’s coronation ceremony will take place tomorrow at 11 a.m. London time (6 a.m. EST). There will also be two further days of coronation festivities: a Coronation Big Lunch and Coronation Concert (in which Katy Perry and Lionel Richie will headline) on Sunday, May 7, and a nationwide volunteering event called The Big Help Out on Monday, May 8.
