Prince William and Princess Kate Pay Respects to Orlando Nightclub Shooting Victims

The previous Canadian outfit, which Kate wore on a trip to the Calgary Zoo in 2011, saw the Duchess pull her signature mahogany locks back into a half-up 'do as she donned a maple leaf brooch on her lapel.

"He's just lovely", she said. "How I will feel if people are still singing "Happy Birthday" to me in December remains to be seen".

She said she would love to race at Royal Ascot one day but "as an amateur it's never going to happen".

Mrs Hassard, who was invited to the garden party with her husband David, added: "It was enchanting to meet him".

'I am now on the waiting list for the LK Bennett Addison silk dress that she wore when President Obama visited Kensington Palace - I just love everything she wears!'

Once again, Kate Middleton had all eyes on her, regardless of it being Queen Elizabeth's big day. I was really nervous about meeting the royal couple, but they are both great at putting you at ease.

Middleton paired the curve-skimming dress with black open-toe heels, a black clutch, hoop earrings, and loose curls, and we can't stop staring.

Paralympian Dame Tanni Grey Thompson met the Duchess and said about her commitment to SportsAid: "She's always the first to throw off her shoes and get stuck in and because she's so fit and plays so many sports, she knows how important sport is and how it helps". 'I paid $380 (£269) for it, which is the most I have ever spent on a dress.

The official Kensington Royal Instagram account posted a photograph of William and Kate's embassy visit, with the note: "The Duke and Duchess offer their condolences for the victims of the awful attack on Orlando's Pulse nightclub, signing a book of condolence at the US Embassy".

For dessert, the Duchess, charity ambassadors and young athletes indulged in orange and Valrhona chocolate bar with milk chocolate mousse, orange jam and an almond praline ice cream, but before they could satisfy their sweet tooth's, the 34-year-old had some kind words to say. "The Queen's strong health and relentless energy; her sharp wit and famous sense of humor; and the fact that the Queen remains very much at the helm of our family, our nation and the Commonwealth".
