On September the 11th 2012, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge attended a welcoming ceremony, reception and state dinner at the Istana Presidential Palacein Singapore.
The State Dinner took place after the couple arrived in the nation-state for the Jubilee tour.
During the dinner, Prince William gave a speech thanking his hosts for their involvement in the 2012 Olympics.
Kate kept things local by wearing a Singaporean-born designer, giving a nod to her host country. Her dress was a ready-to-wear piece by Prabal Gurung’s Spring/Summer 2012 collection:

She wore her black Prada pumps:
