The Duchess of Cambridge stepped out for a solo engagement on Tuesday night - attending the National Portrait Gallery's 2017 Portrait Gala. Kate, who was attending in her role as patron of the iconic London museum, looked stunning on her official night out. She kicked off the event with a reception, where she viewed the newest exhibitions, followed by the gala dinner. Kate, 35, had the chance to mingle with a selection of guests, many of whom will have contributed to this important event. She was also introduced to Richard Found and Jane Suitor, fellow parents from Thomas's school in Battersea, where Prince George is due to start in September. "We were chatting about Thomas's, the school George will be going to," said Mr Found afterwards, adding: "We're parents there as well. She just said 'I may see you at the school gates.'"
