The Duchess of Cambridge was among the royals meeting 350 members of the media at last nights event at Buckingham Palace.
The reception was held ahead of the Queen's 2012 Diamond Jubilee celebrations and will give the monarch a chance to meet some of those who will be reporting on the milestone.
Kate wore a £1,400 ($2,200) emerald green Mulberry shirt dress with a peter pan collar and was - unsurprisingly - mobbed by representatives of women's fashion magazines.
The pleated 'Bright Cabbage Peace & Love Jacquard Dress' (autumn 2011 collection) has a buttoned-up look that is kept contemporary and cute with a metal mock buckle waist belt and a silk jacquard-weaved Peace and Love motif.
Kate accessorized with her favorite gold charm bracelet.
