Prince and Princess Michael of Kent spent the night at the glitzy Private Members Club Loulou’s after King Charles’ coronation at Westminster Abbey.
The 80-year-old Prince Michael of Kent, a cousin of the late Queen, chose not to go straight home after the day’s celebrations, but instead went to dinner at the exclusive Mayfair club with his wife and friends.
The princess, 78, looked radiant in an aqua blue button-down shirt with a high collar.
She wore a long double pearl necklace with matching teal beads and patterned earrings with a sky blue stone.
Princess Michael paired the eye-catching garment with smart black trousers and heels – she also sported a matching onyx handbag and lavish silk scarf.

She wore her blonde locks tied back in a low ponytail with a black ribbon.
Her husband looked smart in a navy blue suit and light blue shirt, finished with a midnight blue patterned tie and a handkerchief in his pocket.
Later in the evening, when the couple came out of the club, the princess drove home as usual.
Earlier in the day, the prince and princess arrived dressed to impress at the coronation ceremony.
Michael wore his traditional attire – a dressing gown, with a Garter star and the Order of Saint Michael and Saint George neck decoration.
He also witnessed the coronation of King Charles’s mother, Queen Elizabeth II, in June 1953. When he was 10, he attended the event with his brother Prince Edward, Duke of Kent.
The mantles worn by members of the royal family are made of deep blue silk velvet, with white satin ribbons and a white taffeta lining. They were hand embroidered with a gold badge on the left side, with a crimson hood over the right shoulder.
The royal couple took a walk after their dinner and admired a sign reading ‘God save the King’

His wife donned an elegant, dusty lilac knee-length dress and accessorized her ensemble with purple gloves, a nude handbag and matching heels.
The former interior designer and author, who married Princess Michael in 1978, also wore a chic purple floral-patterned coat and completed the outfit with a hat and pearl earrings.
Following the grandeur of the coronation ceremony, the grand coronation luncheons take place in what a palace spokesman has described as “a nationwide act of celebration and friendship.”
King Charles and Camilla, Queen Consort have officially chosen a coronation quiche with spinach, fava beans and tarragon as their designated dish for the Great Lunch.
The new coronation dish was developed in close collaboration with the King and Queen Consort by Buckingham Palace royal chef Mark Flanagan.

Quiche was chosen because it is considered a good dish to take to a street party and can be served hot or cold.
It also suits a wide variety of dietary needs and preferences and is considered “not too complicated to make or require expensive or hard-to-find ingredients.”
The public and organizers of a number of charities expressed their enthusiasm prior to the event.
Lucinda Spelman-Ives, from Wilstock, who raised more than £1 million to fund a community center, hopes the Big Lunch will ‘unite and bring everyone together to be a part of history, make great memories, laugh and meet a lot of people who have never met ‘before’.
“Everyone is bursting with pride after yesterday’s ceremony,” she said.
“This will be a very special memory for all of us. Long live the great lunches and long live the king.’
