  • Kate Middleton proves a new Christmas frock isn't always the way, as she recycles bespoke Temperley lace gown in London.

    Kate Middleton and Prince William were in good spirits last night as they glammed up for a special night at the Natural History Museum.

    Attending a gala preview screening of David Attenborough’s Natural History Museum Alice 3D, the Duchess of Cambridge offered a dose of pretty pre-Christmas style.

    Proving that a new frock isn’t the only way to nail festive chic, Kate reworked her bespoke lace gown by British designer, Alice Temperley.

    Donning their 3D specs for the new film, which brings to life some of the museum’s most famous, but extinct, creatures.

    A patron of the museum, Kate giggled her way into the theatre as she enjoyed a rare night out with Wills. The couple have been keeping to busy schedules ahead of Christmas, leaving them to attend many events individually and, of course, share childcare of Prince George.

    Earlier in the day Kate and William travelled to the South Africa House in central London to pay their respects to the late Nelson Mandela. The Duke and Duchess were watching a film about his life, Long Walk To Freedom, when they recieved the sad news of his death.

    ‘It was extremely sad and tragic news,’ said William inside the Odeon Leicester Square in London. ‘We were just reminded of what an extraordinary and inspiring man Nelson Mandela was and my thoughts and prayers are with him and his family right now.’
