Gary Barlow Charity Gig:
On Tuesday 6th of December Kate and William attended a charity concert in aid of The Prince’s Trust at the Royal Albert Hall in London. The event also raised money for the Foundation of Prince William and Prince Harry, which Kate formally became a Patron of on 29th of September this year.
The money raised from the show will support the Prince’s Trust City Riots Appeal, which aims to help young people from riot-torn areas rebuild their lives and communities. You may remember that Kate visited Birmingham earlier this year, an area hit by the senseless rioting.

Kate looked fabulous wearing a simple lace overlay dress from Zara and black opaque tights which balanced out the dress’ short hemline. Overall, she managed to pull off a chic, young look. She didn’t look too formal, nor is the dress inappropriate for the future Queen of England. The outfit worked very well for the occasion. Go Kate!
Unsurprisingly, the dress has sold out on Zara’s website. If you’re looking for the dress online or enquiring about it in your local store it’s known as the “Lace Tulip”.

We’re not too sure where Kate’s shoes are from at the moment, though I personally love them! As you may have already noticed, Kate is wearing her ‘C’ monogram charm bracelet and her Kiki McDonough ‘Grace’ earrings. (Thanks to Anna for the ID!)
Jacket Mystery Solved:
Clarence House released the details of Kate’s outfit to the media as the royal couple arrived at the Royal Albert Hall, confirming her jacket is by Ralph Lauren. This is particularly noteworthy as Kate wore this jacket on the morning after the Royal Wedding (with the cornflower blue Zara dress) and it’s been bugging us Kate fans ever since, as we all loved it! Now we finally know! (For pictures of the jacket visit What Kate Wore.)
