The royal family reunited for Commonwealth Day services, which marked the last reported royal engagement for the Sussexes before their royal duties end on March 31.
Just a few hours after the service, the Duchess of Cambridge hosted a reception and gala dinner at Buckingham Palace in honor of the children’s mental health charity Place2Be turning 25.
For the occasion, the duchess switched out her all-red look from earlier in the day for a gorgeous blue gown with a beaded bodice and long sleeves by one of her go-to designers, Jenny Packham. She paired the gown with a matching blue clutch.
Kate previously wore the gown, complete with a beaded cape, at a Bollywood-inspired charity gala during the royals’ tour of India in 2016.
At the gala dinner on Monday, the duchess made a speech about the charity, of which she’s been patron since 2013.
“Having visited many of your schools, meeting hundreds of your wonderful staff, children and young people, it is heartwarming to see that the support you provide is so much more than just being there in a time of desperate need,” the duchess said at the event.
The Kensington Palace Instagram account shared a roundup of photos and video from the occasion, including Kate’s speech:
