It was their first public appearance as the new Duke and Duchess of Sussex and it was at Prince Charles’ birthday party, no less. They attended Prince Charles’ 70th Birthday
Patronage Celebration and I was honoured to have one of the limited invites!
The momentous event took place at Buckingham Palace, of course, and I was especially honoured to have been invited on this most British of weeks.
Harry and Meghan actually delayed their honeymoon to attend this incredibly swish event and the pair looked as breath-taking in the flesh as they did during Saturday’s glorious
The Duchess is a fairy-tale beauty and looked fresh, graceful and otherworldly in a pale-pink dress by Goat with sheer sleeves and a matching hat by the inimitable Philip Treacy – a man who is style personified.
Coincidentally and not planned at all, I also wore blush! My dress was a stunning Karen Millen day dress which I accessorised with the Roseanna Croft Jewellery Morganite Mandala necklace and Love Lessons, Rose Quartz Earrings.
I wonder if the Duchess noticed my outfit?
Prince Harry was stung by a bee, poor thing, but soldiered on valiantly with a
speech to his father before joining me and the rest of the guests in a very
informal and quietly joyous event.
Of course, it was a beautiful day, so who wouldn’t enjoy themselves sipping
tea and indulging in cucumber sandwiches in the Palace gardens! But the
happy couple seemed to add extra rays of sunshine wherever they ventured.
I bet you’re wondering how I got to be one of the lucky ones invited. Well
that’s a long story that’ll go untold in the long tradition of royal protocol and
absolute discretion. Sorry!
Just kidding! I was nominated and invited as part of the Prince’s Trust who I am honoured to be a Young Ambassador for. I set my first business, Roseanna Croft Jewellery, up with the support of them 3 years ago and I now try to support them in every way I can by helping them raise funds (last year I ran the London Marathon for them) and by sharing my story to inspire other young people to live their best life, as I am.
One of the princesses already owns a piece of Roseanna Croft Jewellery and that I hope a certain Duchess might be wearing a little something from my boutique in the near future also!
It was the most spectacular of days and I’m still on Cloud 9 from the entire experience and I’m left dreaming about where my royal adventures will take me next.
