Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip joined Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall, and Prince William and Kate Middleton at the event on Thursday.

The Queen wore a white Angela Kelly dress, a sapphire and diamond tiara and a gorgeous sapphire necklace with matching earrings, believed to be from the George VI sapphire collection.

Amazingly, the Duchess of Cambridge wore a red Jenny Packham ballgown that she has ALREADY worn during the state visit of Chinese president Xi Jinping.

Let’s face it though, she stole the show…

We love how she always wears the same thing twice, nothing wrong with recycling an old look!

The icing on the cake (or her head) was her stunning Cambridge Lover’s Knot tiara, which was a wedding gift to the Duke of Cambridge’s late mother Diana.

It was one of Diana’s favourites and is made of diamonds and pearls.

Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, missed the event last year due to neck and shoulder pain, was dressed in a white, beaded Bruce Oldfield gown, which she accessorised with a Boucheron tiara, pearl choker and diamond earrings.

Can we note how cool Prince William, the Duke of Cambridge, looks too?

All of the men wore the Order of the Garter, along with the Garter sash and knee breeches. The bow-covered shoes, voluminous pants, and black stockings might start a trend!

Meanwhile, on Christmas Day itself, William and Kate were picture perfect with their two adorable children as they attended church.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge arrived at St Marks Englefield with Prince George and Princess Charlotte, to the delight of other worshippers.

The little ones stoles the show, looking smart in their Sunday finest – with George still wearing shorts and knee-highs!

The family were accompanied by Kate’s parents Michael and Carol Middleton, James Middleton, Pippa Middleton and her fiance James Matthews.
