Debutantes rest their feet as they await the arrival of guests during the Queen Charlotte's Ball at the Royal Courts of Justice in London.

The Queen Charlotte's Ball is the pinnacle event in the London Season.

The London Season was formed over 200 years ago when the custom of returning to London at the end of the hunting season was celebrated with glittering balls and high society events.

The modern group of meticulously selected debutantes continue the tradition and celebrate their year of charity fund-raising, etiquette classes and debut at The Queen Charlotte's Ball. (Getty)
