The Duchess of Cambridge looked dazzling in green as she and Prince William attended the second evening reception of their Caribbean tour.

Kate opted for a stunning Jenny Packham off the shoulder ruffle gown for the glittering state dinner at the house of Jamaica’s Governor General in Kingston.

She paired the dress with emerald and diamond earrings and a bracelet loaned from the Queen, as well as her Royal Family Order and GVCO Star – although there was no tiara. She also wore her hair in a chic updo.

William, who is expected to give a speech at the event, also looked suave in black tie.

As they arrived and were greeted by the Governor General Patrick Allen, William told them they had a “brilliant day” in Jamaica.

Kate added that she also had a “fantastic day” and said “thank you for having us back again”.

The couple also walked down a set of stairs in the Governor General’s house that the Queen and Prince Philip walked down in when they visited Jamaica in 1953 – recreating that moment.

At the dinner, those invited sat down to a menu that included roasted pumpkin and potato soup, pimento-smoked sea bass and suzette fanned crepes.

Earlier in the day, Kate looked gorgeous in another outfit – a white trouser suit by McQueen – as she and William met with Jamaica’s Prime Minister Andrew Holness, who made clear his country’s intention to break away from the British monarchy.

After signing the visitors’ book in the lobby, William and Kate were taken inside for a private meeting with Mr Holness, who told the couple: “We are very very happy to have you and I hope you will have seen the warm welcome of the people.

“Jamaica is a very free and liberal country and the people are very expressive and I’m certain that you will have seen the spectrum of expression yesterday.

“There are issues here which are, as you would know, unresolved, but your presence gives an opportunity for these issues to be placed in context, put front and center and to be addressed as best we can.

“But Jamaica is, as you can see, a country that is very proud of its history, very proud of what we have achieved and we are moving on and we intend to attain, in short order, our developing goals and to fulfill our true ambitions… as an independent, developed, prosperous country.”

After they toured a teacher training college and also met doctors and nurses at a local hospital, before meeting members of the Jamaican Defense Force.
