As royal enthusiasts patiently waited for Kate Middleton to exit her Bentley for Queen Elizabeth II's state banquet at Buckingham Palace, confirmations of her wearing the Lotus Flower tiara and a red gown floated across Twitter. As soon as the Duchess arrived, the blurriest of blurry photos flooded the internet, most of which are probably screen grabs from The Telegraph's live stream of the meticulously formal dining experience. While they don't promise a detailed look at Kate's bespoke Jenny Packham gown, they do show you very basics. Take a peek while waiting for photos taken in person at the actual event. Fair warning, though: Some of these are actually worse than the blurry runway Instagrams of Fashion Week.
