The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge joined the Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall on Tuesday to meet with world leaders, as they hosted a royal reception at the COP26 in Scotland.

Will and Kate dazzled the crowd as they stepped out in matching blue outfits. Kate wore a tailored, royal blue cocktail dress, while Will matched in a navy blue suit paired with a skinny tie.

Alongside the royal couple were Prince Charles and Camilla, also dressing in various shades of blue. Camilla walked out in a navy blue button-up dress with black sheer stockings, as Charles smiled beside her in a deep blue pinstriped suit.

Not only did both Will and Charles take the stage with a heartfelt speech, but Her Majesty, the Queen also addressed the world leaders, with a pre-recorded message from Windsor Castle. 

“It is a source of great pride to me that the leading role my husband played in encouraging people to protect our fragile planet, lives on through the work of our eldest son Charles and his eldest son William,” the Queen said.

The royal family also met with the Earthshot prize finalists to thank them for all their efforts to repair our planet. The royal outing comes after Will and Kate attended the Earthshot Awards on October 18, 2021, in London. True to the couple’s form of never stepping out unnoticed, Will wore a velvet green suit while Kate rocked a recycled Alexander McQueen lilac gown. 

After the event, Will shared his experience meeting the finalists in a very thoughtful Instagram caption, he wrote: “Feeling optimistic as I head home from #COP26 having met our @EarthshotPrize Winners & Finalists and discussed their solutions to repair our planet. Especially proud to see Vinisha speaking in front of the world, demanding change so that her generation can have a better future. W.”
