European kings at the wedding in Cambridge - Royal Central

On Thursday April 28, 2011, hours before Prince William and Catherine Middleton’s wedding, guests and kings gathered for a pre-wedding gala dinner hosted by Queen Elizabeth II’s cousin Lady Elizabeth Anson. The event took place at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Hyde Park and drew dignitaries from around the world as well as members of the British royal family.

While the guests were gathering for dinner, Prince William and Prince Harry were at Clarence House and made a surprise appearance to greet the well-wishers on the processional walk. Meanwhile, Catherine spent the evening with her parents and family at the Goering Hotel in London. To celebrate the 10th wedding anniversary of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Royal Central takes a look at the fashions guests wear at the pre-wedding gala.
