Unsurprisingly, Kate was donning her signature, voluminous blowout, paired perfectly with her usual understated and effortless beauty regime.
It seemed, however, that red was the colour of the night. Not only did Prince William match his tie with Kate’s outfit, but the pair were also joined by fellow royals the Earl and Countess of Wessex – Countess Sophie, also opting for a red frock!
Only a few days ago, it was confirmed that Prince William’s brother, Prince Harry, and his wife Meghan Markle, had officially renounced their HRH titles in favour of an independent life away from the royal family.
In his first public address since the news broke, Prince Harry took to the stage during a dinner for his charity Sentable in London to express that he felt there was “no other choice” but to step down as a senior member of the royal family.
The decision that I have made for my wife and I to step back, is not one I made lightly. It was so many months of talks after so many years of challenges. And I know I haven't always gotten it right, but as far as this goes, there really was no other option."
