The Duchess of Cambridge looked elegant in a sunny yellow dress as she arrived at the Service of Thanksgiving for the Queen's 70-year reign at St Paul's Cathedral in London.

Kate teamed the dress by Emilia Wickstead, which featured cross-over detailing at the waist, with a matching hat embellished with florals by royal milliner Philip Treacy.

The 40-year-old royal wore the frock with a pair of mauve Gianvito Rossi pumps and delicate pearl drop earrings. The London-based brand Emilia Wickstead is one of Kate's favourite to wear. The New Zealand-born fashion designer is the brains behind one of the duchess’ most-worn labels, with her pristinely tailored coats and brightly-coloured dresses making up a healthy chunk of the royal’s wardrobe.

Kate also sported her hair in a chic chignon as she waved at the crowds who cheered and applauded as she and William arrived for the service as part of the Queen's Platinum Jubilee celebrations.

The duke and duchess arrived without their three children - Prince George, 8, Princess Charlotte, 7, and Prince Louis, 4 - who stole the show at the Trooping of Colour yesterday (June 2nd). Louis was pictured waving rapturously, pulling funny facial expressions and enjoying a private moment with the 96-year-old monarch on the balcony at Buckingham Palace.

Buckingham Palace announced that Her Majesty would be unable to attend the service due to experiencing "discomfort" at her Birthday Parade yesterday.

"The Queen greatly enjoyed today's birthday parade and flypast but did experience some discomfort," the palace confirmed in a statement.

"Taking into account the journey and activity required to participate in tomorrow's National Service of Thanksgiving at St Paul's Cathedral, Her Majesty with great reluctance has concluded that she will not attend.

"The Queen is looking forward to participating in tonight's beacon lighting event at Windsor Castle and would like to thank all those who made today such a memorable occasion."

The duke and duchess were joined at the event by Prince Harry and Meghan, Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie and their husbands, Eduardo Mapelli Mozzi and Jack Brooksbank, and Prince Charles and Camilla.
