King Charles III

hosted its first opulent state banquet for the South African President.

Although the palace is under renovation, the guest of honor is likely to take home the best impressions of his visit to the kingdom.

London – Preparations for the state banquet for South African President Cyril Ramaphosa (70) began during Queen Elizabeth II's lifetime (96, †2022).

Now the reception to King Charles' III.

(74) Crucible in terms of opulent organization and direction.

The preparations at Buckingham Palace lasted five days, but the king only drew his ace up his sleeve when the guests had arrived for the evening reception.

Princess Kate looked stunning wearing Diana's Lover's Knot Tiara

The result was something to be proud of, with plates lined up perfectly 45 centimeters apart.

But what made the evening unforgettable was the appearance of the Princess of Wales (40).

Kate Middelton shone in a white dress called

The Elspeth

from British designer Jenny Packham's (57) 2021 bridal collection, but the back neckline was custom-made.

For three years now, Prince Williams' wife has been reaching for a tiara again and chose Princess Diana's (36, † 1997) famous "Lover's Knot Tiara", the favorite diadem of William's late mother.

It was the most important performance of her career.

Not only did Kate spread glamor throughout the palace, which is also currently undergoing renovations, she also provided the President with a dazzling offer of entertainment.

You could see that Ramaphosa was completely charmed by the charm of the mother of three.

If he hadn't been impressed by the day's contingent of soldiers, 230 horses, seven military bands and two state carriages, Kate should have done so effortlessly in the evening.

An excerpt from the King's speech can be found on Instagram:

“South Africa and the Commonwealth have always been a part of my life.

My mother often recalled her visit in 1947, the year before I was born, when she gave her life to serve the people of the Commonwealth from Cape Town on her twenty-first birthday.

It is therefore particularly moving and special that you are our guest on this first state visit that we are hosting,” Charles informed the President.

Dinner in the magnificent ballroom of Buckingham Palace was the highlight

Charles and Camilla said goodbye around 10:30 p.m., according to a palace insider.

After that, the party was over for everyone else too.

The guests chatted briefly in small groups and then let the evening end quickly.

The South African presidential couple went to a nearby hotel.

Because of the renovation work, he could not move into any rooms there.

King Charles himself may have retired to Clarence House, the conversion also makes him a king without a palace.
