Lucy Stafford attended Queen Elizabeth’s garden party at Buckinghan Palace on Tuesday and clicked a candid picture of the royal couple that she shared on Instagram. In the picture, William appears eager to show his wife something, whereas, Kate flashes a smile at her husband for being dragged along. William can be seen donning a morning suit and classic tie and Kate wore a pink Alexander McQueen dress.
Needless to say, this adorable candid picture of the royal couple took the internet by the storm.
Speaking about the real story behind this picture, Lucy told HELLO!, "As they were leaving the party, Kate was spending a lot of time talking to the guests and William had to hurry her along, which is the moment the photo was taken! I feel so fortunate to have attended the party and will definitely never forget it!"
Earlier, the Duchess of Cambridge had revealed about her walkabouts and how the royal family tease her for chatting with the guests at parties for “far too long.” "There's a real art to walkabouts," Kate said in ITV documentary Our Queen at 90 in 2016. "Everybody teases me in the family that I spend far too long chatting. I still have to learn a little bit more, and to pick up a few more tips, I suppose,” she added.
Lucy, who sneaked the picture of the royal couple, was invited to the garden party after she founded the organization Hospital Love Bundles, which sends out care package to young adults who are regularly in and out of hospital. She also campaigns for improved access to the medical cannabis in the UK. At the party, Lucy was introduced to the Queen, who told her how a cricket ball almost killed her in 1994!
Speaking about the party, Lucy said "It was the loveliest day and we had the most delicious afternoon tea in the gardens," said Lucy. "The royal family circulated the party and were so incredibly kind and genuine."
