The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge teamed up to participate in ICAP’s annual Charity Day in support of their patronages Place2Be, SportsAid and SkillForce.
ICAP is one of the UK’s leading dealer brokers who carries out large transactions for financial institutions. Each year, for one day, 100% of ICAP revenue and 100% of their brokers’ commissions goes directly to British charities. To date, they have raised nearly £120,000,000 through their Charity Day efforts.
Kate’s patronages, Place2Be and SportsAid, and William’s patronage, SkillForce, were two of the charities benefitting from this year’s program. Will and Kate “closed deals” with clients as a part of the celebrations. They chatted with representatives from billion-dollar companies with the guidance of ICAP’s brokers (who may-or-may-not have worn trousers).
Representatives from Place2Be and SkillForce were on hand to enjoy the festivities. The ICAP offices were decorated with Christmas cheer and the atmosphere was very jolly.
William and Kate played ping-pong, shot some hoops, and did a few celebratory dances. It was a very fun event supporting numerous important causes.
The Duchess of Cambridge worn a teal suit by LK Bennett, seen previously in 2012. She paired it with her Stuart Weitzman “Power” pumps and Mulberry clutch. We also saw her Mappin & Webb “Empress” necklace and earrings again.
The front-page news of the day was Kate’s new ‘do. The Duchess has chopped off her long locks and is sporting a medium/long style. It is very similar to her trademark hairstyle, but with 4-6 inches less. I was personally reminded of her haircut from 2006, which was very similar in length and style.
Another fantastic event for the royal couple! Tomorrow we will see Kate again in Warminster.
