Their first stop was to sign the guest book.
Then they met with paralympic athletes and stayed for a seven course Chinese dinner in the Banquet Hall. Deciding to forgo the wine, the Duke and Duchess made toasts to the Queen twice with water.
Kate wore a white and blue floral print dress by Erdem (£895). It was a modified version from Erdem's Spring/ Summer 2012 collection. The frock featured a pleated skirt, exposed back and loose-fitting sleeves.
