Royals To Grace EIM Founder's Charity Gala

Jun 1 2011 | 10:43am ET

EIM's Arpad Busson has secured a pair of royal headliners for the firm's 10th anniversary charity gala in London this summer.

Prince William and his wife, the former Kate Middleton, will make their first public appearance as a married couple at the Absolute Return for Kids dinner on June 9, they announced yesterday. The newly-minted Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have not been seen in public since their April 29 wedding, although the couple met with U.S. President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama during their visit to London last month.

The prince, second in line to the British throne after his father, will address the 900 guests at the ARK reception before a private dinner. Guests will pay £10,000 apiece to sup with the royals, who will follow their first public engagement with their first trip abroad, to Canada and the U.S.

ARK raises money for disadvantaged children worldwide. The annual gala features a charity auction, and annually raises more than £10 million.
