The Duchess was busy in London today supporting Place2Be, a Children’s mental health charity providing in-school support & training for emotional wellbeing. The first engagement even involved a dinosaur!
The first engagement was a surprise engagement at the Natural History Museum which was embargoed by Kensington Palace – Rebecca English shared that the Museum remained open during the event, so there was likely an interest in keeping crowds to a minimum. The engagement was a dinosaur themed event at the Natural History Museum, where the Duchess of Cambridge is a patron. Kate attended a tea party with schoolchildren to celebrate the last few weeks of “Dippy” the Dinosaur’s residence at the museum before he embarks on a 2 year long tour of the rest of the country.
Kate wore a new dress today, the LK Bennett Cersei. It’s a gorgeous dress in perfectly appropriate fall & winter colours and very similar to the Madison and Addison styles she has sported previously.
Later in the evening, the Duchess of Cambridge attended the Place2Be Awards at Mansion House. Kate is also a Patron of Place2Be, the UK’s leading children’s mental health charity providing in-school support and expert training to improve the emotional wellbeing of pupils, families, teachers and school staff.
Kate gave a speech as well, which was very inspirational. She met with several students who benefited from Place2Be’s services – one mother broke down into tears when meeting the Duchess.
Kate changed her look for the evening, opting for a black version of the Preen Finella pleated midi dress we had previously seen in Canada. She paired it with gorgeous Prada pumps, a bejewelled belt and a pair of spectacular diamond pendant earrings borrowed from the Queen.
