Days before Kate Middleton's rumored due date, her royal in-laws invited her commoner family to sit in the royal box at the Coronation Festival Evening Gala at Buckingham Palace. The four-day festival celebrates the 60th anniversary of the queen's coronation, attracting food, shop, and design vendors to the palace grounds.

Over the past few weeks, the royals have been busy preparing for the royal baby's birth, and on Thursday, Queen Elizabeth II, Prince Charles, and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, spent time with Pippa Middleton, her brother, James, and her dad, Michael. Earlier in the day, Camilla revealed the family's excitement, saying, "We are very excited. Immensely looking forward to it and waiting for the phone call." Expectant Zara Phillips also attended the event, where she chatted with her cousin Princess Eugenie. Take a look at the festivities.
