Prince William and Kate dazzle at Bahamas reception on last night of royal tour – best photos

On the final night of their hectic Caribbean royal tour, Prince William and Kate dazzled at a reception held in their honor. At the Baha Mar Hotel in Nassau, William and Kate were VIP guests at an event hosted by the Bahamas’ Governor General.

Kate has been flaunting her style throughout the eight-day tour, and she didn’t disappoint on Friday night when she wore a Phillipa Lepley Vienna Crossover satin dress with tie-detailing on the shoulders.

Kate’s gown is described as a “clean, gorgeous duchess satin dress” with a “timeless, feminine design” from the 2020 bridal collection.

“One piece of heavenly turquoise bias satin has been moulded over the bodice in a cross-over design, flowing into Phillipa’s signature shoulder bows, creating a bodice and skirt with side seams only and an effortless look,” according to the designer.
