Balmoral Style ~ Part Two

Continuing on from our previous post on Balmoral style in the day time, let’s discuss evening wear, shall we? We love the notion of ‘dressing for dinner’ and would love to be two flies on the wall for dinner at Balmoral.

Because Balmoral is a private royal residence, we have few pictures of what the ladies wear to wear to dinner there. However, here are a few examples we could get our hands on.

Here we have an example of Diana’s formal wear when she was HRH The Princess of Wales. We love how she’s embracing  tartan here! This number was made for her by Catherine Walker. (For our post on the Duchess of Cambridge’s Catherine Walker dress, click here.)

And here we have an example of The Queen’s formal Balmoral wear. This gown is by Norman Hartnell and is made of duchesse satin with beads and sequins. HM wore it to the Ghillies’ Ball at Balmoral, 1971. How lovely.

Here is a beautiful aerial shot of the event.

And finally, a picture of Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother and Princess Margaret on the same evening. We would love to see Princess William and the Duchess of Cambridge at a future Ghillies ball!
