Let’s hear it for the royal cousins—this week, Prince William hosted a garden party at Buckingham Palace on behalf of his father, King Charles, and included some VIP members of his family. Namely, Princess Eugenie and Princess Beatrice, who—in Kate Middleton’s absence—managed to brighten up even the rainiest London day. How so? The pair dressed beautifully in shades of white and pink. Eugenie wore Ulla Johnson (the ‘Cassia’ style, which happens to be on sale for $390) while Beatrice opted for the ‘Christina’ dress from Beulah London in a bright and eye-catching crimson, $843.

Both styles beautifully complimented each other—and with cousin Zara Tindall, who also dressed in shades of white and pink, by their side—it made the entire occasion feel cheery and spring-like, a massive feat given the gloominess of the day.

We also need to give credit where credit is due: Yes, Prince William looked extra dapper (and tall!) in a top hat, but it’s the ladies who brought color and interest to this royal event. As a royal expert, I noted a vibe shift simply by including Eugenie, Beatrice and Zara—and one that I’m sure the 8,000 guests huddled under umbrellas at Buckingham Palace appreciated.

Back to the dresses: Like I said, they’re still available to purchase and quite perfect for spring and summer occasions. I especially love the softness of Eugenie’s cream-colored style; but also the structure and stand-out color of Beatrice’s crimson-hued choice.

Pair each look with an oversized hatband—as Bea and Eugenie did—and you’ll be dressed to impress...with a twinge of royal flair, too.
