Kate Middleton and Trudeau reunite at Nato reception three years after they struck up a friendship in Canada
A picture of the two with animated expressions on their faces during a conversation was captured by the Royal photographer and posted as part of a series of photos in the official Twitter account of the Royal family.
At a special reception at Buckingham Palace, which was hosted for NATO leaders by the Queen, Kate Middleton proved that the relations between the United Kingdom and Canada were as strong as ever as she was seen engaged in an intense conversation with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
A picture of the two with animated expressions on their faces deep in conversation was captured by the Royal photographer and posted as part of a series of photos in the official Twitter account of the Royal family. In the snap, the Duchess of Cambridge, 37, is seen gesturing with her hands during the moment, while Trudeau, 47, smiled at her.
"The Princess Royal, The Duchess of Cambridge, and The Duke and Duchess of Gloucester meet NATO leaders, members of delegations and @NATO staff in the Picture Gallery," the series of photos were captioned by the palace.
For the occasion, the duchess donned a green Emilia Wickstead dress which she accessorized with a pair of diamond teardrop earrings borrowed from Queen Elizabeth, while Trudeau stuck to the formal suit and tie.
It is believed that Kate and her husband Prince William became good friends with Trudeau and his wife, Sophie Gregoire Trudeau, during their royal tour of Canada in 2016, when the two pairs spent considerable time together.
Hence, it was understandable that Trudeau received a warm welcome by Kate at the special NATO reception, which was not attended by the Duke of Cambridge, who is currently visiting Oman and Kuwait. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were also absent from the event as they are enjoying a six-week break from royal duties.
However, several other Royals were in attendance at the prestigious event, including Princess Anne, Prince Charles, Duchess Camilla, and the evening's host, Queen Elizabeth. Around 25 NATO leaders were in attendance at the event.
