It was champagne and spicy shrimp canapés with classic roast beef on mini Yorkshire puddings as Prince William
's girlfriend Kate Middleton
honored celebrity portrait photographer Alistair Morrison's book Time to Reflect
inside London's trendy The Shop at Bluebird on Thursday.
Though William wasn't at the event, well-wishers did include Kate's sister Pippa Middleton, as well as some of the prince's pals: Guy Pelly and his stepsister Laura Lopes, the pregnant daughter of Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall. – Monique Jessen
