Last night, Alexa Chung was chairing the Annual Portrait Gala, with the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, in attendance. As per usual, our style muse looked incredible, dressed in an off-the-shoulder Loewe dress, complete with sparkly earrings and a black clutch.
But, for once, it wasn’t Alexa’s outfit choice we were obsessing over, it was her date: her dad, Phil Chung.
Phil was, of course, chuffed to be invited to meet the future Queen, posting photos of the night to his Instagram account.
After meeting the Duchess, Alexa’s adorable dad wrote, “Did I just introduce HRH to Alexa? Or was I dreaming? And was it in a gallery full of Howard Hodgkin paintings. I must have been dreaming!”
Proving that even if you’re Alexa Chung, your dad is still super cringe. The model posted an Instagram story before the event, asking her dad what he was going to say upon meeting Kate.
When he started to come up with an answer, Alexa interrupted, saying, “No, you’re going to say sorry I’m mute and I can’t speak.”
Turns out, in typical dad fashion, Phil ignored his daughter’s advice, saying on her story after the meeting, “I certainly did talk to her… we spoke about children’s paintings, and how she should collect all her children’s paintings.”
