It was the second public engagement for the Duchess since she gave birth in July.


William, as patron of the charity, presented two awards during the ceremony, spoke passionately about the need to do more to save Africa’s threatened species. The prince has devoted much of his time to raising awareness for wildlife preservation in Africa and even chose to propose to Kate in Kenya back in 2010.

All eyes were on the Duchess of Cambridge as she wore a glittering Jenny Packham gown, emblazoned with flashy pale gold sequins. The floor-length, figure-hugging, sleeveless gown featured a bateau neckline, broche-accented empire waist and back keyhole detail.
