The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge stepped out on Monday evening (November 18), for the Royal Variety Performance held at London’s Palladium Theatre.
The annual event is in aid of the Royal Variety Charity, of which the Queen is Patron, and the money raised from the show helps hundreds of entertainers throughout the UK, who need help and assistance as a result of old age, ill-health or hard times.
Although a member of the royal family always makes an appearance at the Royal Variety Performance—a tradition since King George V and Queen Mary attended a first “royal performance in 1912—Prince William and Kate Middleton aren’t always the designated attendees.
Last year, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle went to the show, and the Duchess wore a custom look from Safiyaa for the occasion.
Catherine wore a floor-length gown by Alexander McQueen, while William looked smart in a tux.
This is a beautiful design, but I’ve never been a huge fan of black lace dresses with a nude lining.
With a black lining you would lose the ability to see the majority of the detail, but to me the nude lining gives an old fashion appearance.
A Jimmy Choo ‘Celeste’ clutch and beautiful loose curls completed her look.
