The dress featured long sleeves and velvet buttons on the front, and today, the Queen combined it with black tights and black suede pumps. 

She donned a pair of pearl drop earrings and on her lapel was a knot brooch covered in diamonds. 

The Queen Consort wore this same dress during Christmas 2020 to attend a children’s charity event in London.

Princess Anne donned a black midi dress with a pleated skirt which featured a gold detail around the neck and pockets. 

She combined the look with a chic black and gold clutch bag and black suede pumps. 

For jewellery, the Princess Royal sported a pair of gold earrings, a pearl necklace with dark blue beads and gold spacer elements, and a diamond brooch.

The royal has donned this unique necklace before, such as at the Royal London Yacht Club Champagne Party during Cowes Week in August 2018.

The royal reception at the Palace was to honour the medal-winning athletes from Team GB who participated in the 2020 Tokyo Summer Olympics and Paralympics.

King Charles wore a black suit with a blue tie, the Duke of Gloucester also wore a black suit, while Prince Edward sported a grey one with a red tie.

Princess Anne is the president of the British Olympic Association and Prince Edward is a patron of the British Paralympic Association.

The Princess Royal was the first British royal to compete in the Olympics. She rode Goodwill, Queen Elizabeth’s horse, in the 1976 Montreal Olympics.

The royals welcomed over 200 athletes at Buckingham Palace, where they could be seen chatting with them and enjoying the evening. 

Many of them wore red poppy pins, a symbol to honour those who lost their lives ahead of Remembrance Day this month.

Some royal watchers shared their thoughts on social media with @MatthewSproul13 saying: “Lovely picture!”
