She wore the patch delicately concealed under a large brimmed hat, teamed with a monochrome dress with matching structured blazer.

The Czech-born royal joined her husband and 8,000 guests on the manicured lawns of the palace for the annual summer party, which was hosted by the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh.

The Queen's daughter Princess Anne was also at the bash, opting for a floral overcoat with lilac skirt and hat.

This week the monarch presided over the state opening of Parliament. Looking as regal as ever, she had donned an embroidered cream gown and matching velvet shawl, along with a pair of white gloves, a jewel necklace and earrings and silver handbag for the occasion.

The Queen, meanwhile, had donned a pink outfit for the day. A matching hat, three lines of pearls and a black pair of shoes completed her royal look.

Princess Beatrice was another royal at the garden party. The 26-year-old looked lovely in a beige dress and jacket as she mingled with guests.
