Zara listened intently to what other attendees had to say and was the picture of elegance.
She accessorised with a delicate necklace and chic hoop earrings.
Opting for a subdued look, Zara wore a sweep of natural-look glam and was delighted to be at the reception.
Last year, Zara fronted the highly-acclaimed documentary Zara McDermott: Revenge Porn in which she detailed her two revenge porn ordeals.

Since stepping into the public eye, Zara, has been vocal about issues faced by young women today – recently fronting a BBC Three documentary about sexism and rape culture in Britain.
She opened up about a sexual assault where she was ‘almost raped’ while walking home in broad daylight, only escaping when a group of adults saw the attack and came to help.
Zara, who has also worked with the charity Refuge, said after chatting to the duchess: ‘I felt it was important to share my story to help others who may have been in the same situation.

‘A couple of years ago the term revenge porn wasn’t known at all, but now an increasing number of people are aware of it and the absolute destruction it can bring.
‘The landscape is changing and the increase of technology, whether it’s camera phones, social media or access to apps, is actually quite concerning when in the wrong hands.
‘What I have tried to convey with my work with Refuge is that we all need to be aware of what we are sharing, how we are sharing it and who we are sharing it with.’
The TV star later said on her Instagram account she had told the duchess ‘all about the work I have done, and will continue to do for young people’.
‘What a privilege to have your work recognised by a member of the Royal family, and to be able to share your aspirations for the future with them.
‘I am so so so incredibly grateful,’ she added.
