Duchess of Cambridge to attend charity dinner at Kensington Palace

The Duchess of Cambridge will attend a charity dinner in aid of Action on Addiction on Thursday evening at Kensington Palace.

Kate, 31, will be guest of honour at the 100 Women in Hedge Funds Gala which will benefit the addiction charity, of which she became patron in 2012.

Since Prince George’s birth, the Duchess has been slowly returning to royal engagements.

The event, which is being held at The State Apartments at Kensington Palace, will include a dinner and during the evening the royal mum will present Amelia Fawcett, DBE, with the coveted European Industry Leadership Award.

The dinner also comes just one day after the Duchess was joined by close family and friends as three-month-old son, Prince George was baptised.

The Duchess, who looked elegant in an Alexander McQueen coatdress, looked on with pride as she and Prince William were greeted by The Queen outside the Chapel Royal at St James’s Palace for the 30-minute service.

Attending Thursday evening’s dinner without William, it will be the second solo engagement Kate has had since the birth of Prince George. Last week the Duchess visited the Olympic Park, where she spent the day with young athletes.

Since Prince George’s birth in July, the Duchess has slowly eased her way back into royal life. In late August, just weeks after George’s arrival, Kate joined Prince William at the start of the Ring O’Fire marathon in Anglesey.

Last month, Kate and her husband attended the Tusk Trust Awards at the Royal Society in London.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry are patrons of 100 Women in Hedge Funds and the organisation will focus on helping Action on Addiction this year.
