The Duchess of Cambridge hit the theatre last night looking like a total princess
Wearing a gorgeous Marchesa gown, Kate stepped out to support one of her favourite charities.
Kate Middleton stepped out last night looking like a total Princess for the opening night of the West End production of 42nd Street.
The Duchess, who wore a deep red Marchesa gown paired with gorgeous earrings (seriously, we’re obsessed), was all smiles on the red carpet of the Theatre Royal Drury Lane.
The spin-off of the Broadway hit will be starring Grammy winner Sheena Easton, and is supporting one of Kate’s favourite charities – the East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) – by raising funds for The Nook, a new purpose-built hospice in Norfolk.
At the event Princess Kate met 12-year-old Ollie Duell, who has a medical condition that affects his bowel and stomach, and told the reporters at the event he wanted to talk to the Duchess about how much he likes the hospice:
“She’s very pretty and I want to talk to her about the hospice and how I like going there, I also want to tell her about Pokemon”.
After the show’s curtain call, Kate was presented with a pair of gold tap shoes with red bows, by director and author Mark Bramble:
“On behalf of everyone here at 42nd Street, the cast, the orchestra, the crew, the wig department, the costume department, you have no idea, we would like to honour you with these tap shoes and we promise to support The Nook Appeal”.
The East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices needs to raise £10 million to build The Nook, you can help the charity by contributing with a donation on their website.
