On September the 11th 2012, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge attended a welcoming ceremony, reception and state dinner at the Istana Presidential Palace.
The State Dinner took place after the couple arrived in Singapore for the Jubilee tour.
During the State Dinner, Prince William gave a speech thanking his hosts for their involvement in the 2012 Olympics.
Kate kept things local by wearing a Singaporean-born designer, giving a nod to her host country. Her dress was a ready-to-wear piece by Prabal Gurung’s Spring/Summer 2012 collection:
The wool-silk dress is largely cream with a vibrant, purple floral pattern swirled over the top. It features a bateau neckline, three quarter length sleeves and a full silk lining. The exquisite dress retailed at Brown’s department store for £1,770 but was recently reduced to £710 in the sale.

She wore her black Prada pumps:
