MEET THE PRESS: The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were among the royals on hand to greet the British press Monday night when Queen Elizabeth II invited journalists to a reception at Buckingham Palace ahead of her Diamond Jubilee celebrations next year.

Kate wore a green Mulberry silk shirtdress with a pleated skirt for the occasion. She was joined at the reception by William, the Duke of Cambridge, along with Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, and the Duke of Edinburgh and the Queen.

During the event, the Palace — which has its own Twitter account under the handle @BritishMonarchy — allowed journalists to post updates about the evening on Twitter from an area in the Palace that it dubbed the “Tweet Suite.”
