Dressed in a smart black suit and crisp white shirt the Duke of Sussex looked dapper as he shook hands with England cricket captain Eoin Morgan, Australia captain Aaron Finch, Bangladesh captain Masrafe Bin Mortaza and India captain Virat Kohli. 

The captains of the teams taking part in the ICC Cricket World Cup were seen meeting for a photograph in the 1844 Room at Buckingham Palace in London, ahead of the competition’s Opening Party on the Mall. 

Well-heeled guests were seen donning their best glad rags as they braved the rain to join the queue for the third royal garden party of the season.

The annual Buckingham Palace garden parties, started in the 1860s by Queen Victoria, are a way of recognising and rewarding public service and see people from all walks of life enjoy high tea on the lawn to the sounds of a military band.

Every year, the Queen invites 30,000 people to attend the parties and last year 8,000 guests attended the first soiree of the season, held at Buckingham Palace earlier this month. 

The garden party is the third one this summer, with two more scheduled for June and July, one of which will be held at Holyrood Palace. 

For the occasion men are asked to wear morning dress or lounge suits while women are invited to wear a ‘day dress, usually with hats or fascinators’.

The garden parties serve are an important way for the royals to speak to a broad range of people from all walks of life, all of whom have made a positive impact in their community. 

At each Garden Party, around 27,000 cups of tea, 20,000 sandwiches and 20,000 slices of cake are consumed.

The garden party tradition was started in the 1860s by Queen Victoria, who used to call them ‘breakfasts’.
