Kate Middleton made her first red carpet appearance since becoming a mother.
The Duchess of Cambridge beamed as she accompanied husband Prince William to the Tusk foundation gala dinner at The Royal Society in London.
Kate Middleton, 31, wore a glittering floor-length Jenny Packham dress covered in sequins with her brunette hair carefully curled over her shoulders and simple, pretty make-up.
She finished the look with sparkling stiletto heels and diamond jewellery.
Prince William, who wore smart black tie, is a patron of the Tusk charity, and expected to make a speech at the end of the awards ceremony which will be hosted by journalist Kate Silverton.
Last night’s awards aim to celebrate outstanding achievement in the field of African conservation, recognizing the achievements of individuals who are ensuring the future of Africa and bringing the challenges faced by the continent to a global audience.
Just last month, Kate Middleton made her first public appearance since the birth of Prince George when she attended the Anglesey ultra-marathon with Prince William.
Then, Prince William had revealed that Kate was bearing the brunt of the night duties – and that their son was proving to be quite a nocturnal little fellow.
The Duchess revealed that her mother, Carole, – or granny as she called her – had come up to babysit, and told locals that he was “sleeping well”.
Kate Middleton mentioned during the visit she was keen to get “back into shape” after the birth.
Last night’s outing marks the start of a new role for Prince William as he begins a new life outside the military.
