The reception is going to be informal but a grand affair, staged over drinks and canapés in the picture gallery and state apartments, the Royal glitter that usually makes Royal events stand out has been toned down in respect for the circumstances. Attendees were wearing lounge suits and morning dresses, without hats or decorations.
