The “white ties and decorations” means tailcoats for men and full-length gowns for women.

Tiara, medals and Royal Orders will be displayed also by those that possess them.

According to royal blogger Gerts Royal, the Cambridges have attended all but one of the receptions since 2013.

In 2014, the event clashed with Kate and William’s three day tour of the United States.
