The Prince and Princess of Wales met President Yoon Suk Yeol and the First Lady at their hotel in London on Tuesday morning as part of the South Korea state visit. 

For the special occasion, Prince William, 41, looked smart in a dark navy suit and a red silk tie while Princess Kate, 41, wore a scarlet cape dress crafted by Catherine Walker and a matching hat designed by Jane Taylor. 

She wore her glossy brunette tresses in a chic chignon and finished off her look with a sweep of radiant makeup and a pair of dazzling diamond and sapphire earrings. 

The Prince and Princess travellled with the President and the First Lady to Horse Guards Parade where they were formally welcomed by the King and Queen during a ceremony.

Ahead of their arrival, Charles and Camilla took their place standing on the royal pavilion and briefly greeted Prime Minister Rishi Sunak, Foreign Secretary Lord Cameron, Home Secretary James Cleverly and the defence chiefs of staff.

Their Majesties were also joined by Senior Staff from the Household Division led by Major General James Bowder. 

Exuding sophistication, Queen Camilla made a statement in a navy-blue midi dress which she teamed with a coordinating navy coat, both crafted by Anna Valentine. 

On her head meanwhile, Her Majesty donned a spectacular feathered hat designed by master milliner, Philip Treacy, whilst on her lapel, the mother-of-two added a touch of sparkle with a magnificent brooch which previously belonged to Queen Mary. 

During the ceremony, presentations were made, the Guard of Honour gave a royal salute and the Republic of Korea’s national anthem was played. 

The King and President Yoon later inspected the Guard of Honour, formed by F Company Scots Guards. During the inspection, President Yoon walked past two ranks of Guardsman before returning to the royal pavilion. 

Members of the Scots Guards were recently deployed to South Korea where they were training troops.

The royal party and their guests then headed back to Buckingham Palace in a carriage procession travelling down The Mall.

The King travelled with the Korean president in the Irish state coach while Queen Camilla and the First Lady rode in the Australian State Coach. 

Following behind were William and Kate with Choo Kyungho, deputy prime minister and minister of economy and finance, in the Scottish State Coach. 

Upon arrival at Buckingham Palace, King Charles, Queen Camilla, Prince William, Princess Kate and their guests were greeted by a guard of honour from the 1st Battalion Welsh Guards. 

After a private lunch, President Yoon and his wife will view a special exhibition in the palace’s Picture Gallery of items from the Royal Collection relating to the Republic of Korea.
