You might think fairytale princesses exist only in the land of make believe, but Beatrice and Eugenie were the real deal on Wednesday as they stepped out for a special performance of the enchanting Nutcracker ballet in London.
Joined by Beatrice’s long-term boyfriend Dave Clark, the Princesses mingled with a host of celebs at a starry reception to celebrate the launch of the English National Ballet’s Christmas season ahead of the performance.
Revelling in her time in the spotlight after her British Comedy Award win, young sitcom actress Ramona Marquez posed with dancers. Alongside the eight-year-old was her Outnumbered co-star Tyger Drew-Honey.
Mother and daughter Cherie and Katherine Blair walked the red carpet together. And there was another family outing for Emma Thompson, who came accompanied by daughter Gaia and mum, actress Phyllida Law.
And looking especially elegant at the party was Amy Winehouse’s talented goddaughter Dionne Bromfield.
Dressed in a smart black dress, the 13-year-old singer looked every inch the composed celeb among the big names. It's hard to believe she only stepped into the limelight in October, when she released her first album, Introducing Dionne Bromfield, on Amy’s record label.
Elton John and his partner David Furnish also made an appearance at the festive gala. As did singer Rachel Stevens, designer Matthew Williamson and models Daisy Lowe and Rosie Huntington Whiteley.
