Only two members of the British  royal family have attended  the Met Gala.

Princess Diana attended once in 1996, and Princess Beatrice  attended in 2018.

Beatrice wore a purple gown, a  color associated with royalty, to  her first Met Gala.

Her appearance was less than two weeks before Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding.

Beatrice's gown featured billowing sleeves and embellishments,  nodding to the night's theme.

Anna Wintour, the Met Gala chair, expressed a desire to see Kate Middleton and Meghan  Markle attend.

She specifically wished for the two duchesses to attend without their husbands.

Wintour sees royalty as ideal  guests for the prestigious event.
