William and Kate stepped out in style for the event at Cahal Pech. They spent time with those involved in the nation's government and community, including the Prime Minister of Belize. Kate looked radiant in a shimmery pink dress with statement sleeves which Hello! shares was designed by Vampire's Wife, as well as eye-catching earrings. 

Prince William, Duke of Cambridge and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge attend a special reception hosted by the Governor General of Belize on March 21, 2022.

The Duke of Cambridge wore a blue blazer with a collared shirt and gave a speech during the reception that saw him mention both Kate and the queen. "Ladies and Gentlemen, I am honoured to convey the very warmest wishes from my grandmother, The Queen of Belize, on the occasion of her Platinum Jubilee," William said. He referenced how the queen was fond of Belize, bringing up her mention of a "gibnut" in particular.

William also expressed how he and Kate were "deeply touched" by how much they felt embraced by the people of Belize. While the royal couple is now heading off to Jamaica, he said they "only wish we could have stayed longer." It appears William and Kate enjoyed themselves during the reception— perhaps they even broke out their dance moves again!
