As part of President Yoon Suk Yeol's official state visit to the U.K., King Charles, Queen Camilla, Prince William and Kate Middleton hosted a banquet at Buckingham Palace on Tuesday night in the South Korean leader and his wife's honor. And they made sure to include some K-pop royalty when putting together the guest list.
Jisoo, Jennie, Rosé and Lisa of Blackpink flew to London for the occasion, and donned their best princess gowns to dine in Buckingham Palace.
Jisoo opted for a Dior puff-sleeved black dress and black leather top-handle bag embossed with "CD". (She's a Dior brand ambassador.) Jennie wore an off-the-shoulder, long-sleeved silk satin gown that's technically a wedding dress, from bridal designer Lihi Hod's Dreams 2023 collection. (The style is called the Hailey.) Rosé picked a black velvet style with a sweetheart neckline by Pinkong, and tied a black ribbon into a bow in her hair. Lisa, meanwhile, went in a more maximal direction, in an embellished blue gown with a cape train by Georges Hobeika.
They weren't just there to look regal (though, they certainly did): The members got a mention in King Charles' speech, acknowledging their work as ambassadors to environmental and sustainability causes.
