Kate Middleton showed off her trademark smile at Buckingham Palace last night, as she met Olympic and Paralympic athletes at a special reception hosted by the Queen.

She looked stunning as always in a black Alice Temperley dress, decorated with cream and gold flowers, as well as a gorgeous bracelet, and black suede courts.

After telling para-equestrian rider and gold medallist Lee Pearson that she’s just started horse riding lessons, she shared a laugh with the womens hockey team.

David Cameron was also a guest at the reception, and he said: “I think it’s a lovely finish to an amazing year for British Olympians and Paralympians.”

As one of the unofficial faces of the Games, we bet that Kate agrees! BS
