Princess Kate and Prince William’s Looked Gorgeous At The Royal Variety Performance 2021
Prince William and Kate Middleton left the kids at home on Thursday for a night on the town.
Or should we say, a night at the theater?
The couple attended the annual Royal Variety Performance – an event of which the Queen herself is patron. The charity raises money to help hundreds of UK-based entertainers in need of financial assistance and help due to hard times, ill-health, or old age.
The Royal Variety Performance featured the Cirque du Soleil, the cast of Matilda: the Musical and Moulin Rouge, as well as musical performances by Ed Sheeran, James Blunt, Rod Stewart, and the Some Voices choir. British TV star Alan Carr hosted the evening, along with a feature performance by Gregory Porter and Elvis Costello. Actress Keala Settle made a special appearance of her own.
A Dazzling Couple
If you remember the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s royal visit to Pakistan in 2019, you’d instantly recognize the glittering emerald gown Kate adorned on Thursday. The sparkly number was created by Jenny Packham. The Duchess opted for side-swept wavy locks instead of the usual blowout she’s spotted in. Her husband, the Duke of Cambridge, made a statement of his own in a dashing blue velvet tux.
The last time the couple wowed on the Royal Albert Hall’s red carpet was in September during the premiere of the Bond movie, No Time To Die.
And That’s Not All
Some special guests who we don’t get to see too often around the Duchess are her family members. Luckily, though, joining them in their box for the night were Michael and Carole Middleton (Kate’s parents), as well as her brother, James Middleton, and his new wife, Alizee Thevenet. The only family member missing was her little sister, Pippa.
Though it’s rare to spot Kate’s family accompanying her for royal events, sources reveal that the family is actually very close. Kate’s family is also reportedly very friendly with the royal family. The Queen even invited the Middletons to her summer estate in Scotland, the Balmoral.
William and Kate were also in attendance at Alizee Thevenet and James Middleton’s intimate weekend wedding. The royals, not wanting to steal the show from the newlyweds, kept their attendance under the radar.
The Duke and Duchess’ return to London nightlife also signals that the theater and entertainment sectors are once again back in business after a long pandemic-forced.
