After a long day that started with hair and makeup at 6:30 a.m., wound into the hour-long ceremony and procession, featured two very public kisses and culminated with a Buckingham Palace reception for 650 hosted by the Queen, Kate found time to change before heading off to the second post-wedding bash of the day.
Following a brief rest at Prince Charles's home, Kate slipped into another dress designed by McQueen creative director Sarah Burton: a white satin strapless evening gown with a circle skirt and diamante detailing around the waist. She topped the look with a simple white shrug, warming her up in the breezy 60-degree weather.
Not to be outdone, The Duke of Cambridge pulled a quick change, too: William set aside his scarlet colonel uniform in favor of a dapper black tuxedo. Prince Charles, his wife Camilla Parker Bowles and Kate's sister Pippa all stepped out in colorful new outfits, too.
