Royalty Graces 100 Women Gala In London

Oct 25 2013 | 10:29am ET

Just a day after her son's christening, the Duchess of Cambridge was back in the public eye at 100 Women in Hedge Funds' annual gala dinner.

The former Kate Middleton, wife of Britain's Prince William, was the guest of honor at the event, held at Kensington Palace, where the couple lives with their son, Prince George.

Last night's black-tie affair supported Action on Addiction, of which the duchess is a patron.

"We are honored that the Duchess of Cambridge has once again lent her support to 100 Women in Hedge Funds for our London gala, and particularly as one of her first public appearances since the birth of her son," 100 Women executive director Amanda Pullinger said. "Action on Addiction is an enormously worthy cause and I'm delighted that this evening's event is such a success."

During the gala, the duchess presented 100 Women's 2013 European Industry Leadership Award to Amelia Fawcett, the chairman of the Hedge Fund Standards Board.
