Kate Middleton dazzled earlier today (Monday June 13) as she wore a blue dress for the Garter Day ceremony.

The Duchess of Cambridge, 40, looked impeccable as she arrived at Windsor Castle for the royal event.

At one point the mum-of three was pictured standing next to Sophie, Countess of Wessex.

What happened during Garter Day?

Kate and Sophie were joined by other members of the royal family for the ceremony – but not, it appears, by Prince Andrew.

The Duke was tipped to attend but it is believed Prince Charles and Prince William objected to the plan.

Buckingham Palace later confirmed Andrew would only attend the day’s private events.

A statement read: “The Duke of York will attend the investiture and lunch today but will not be part of the procession or service.”

William and his father were however spotted in his full ceremonial regalia for the Order of the Garter proceedings.

The ceremony concerns those who have held public office, those who have contributed to national life or who have served the Sovereign personally.
