Kate Middleton Wows the Crowd with Speech at the 100 Women in Finance Gala

Kate Middleton’s latest royal outing is right up her alley.

The Duchess of Cambridge, 37, recently attended a gala in honor of Mentally Healthy Schools, a program Middleton launched last year. The dinner took place at the Victoria & Albert Museum in London and honored the organization’s 100 Women in Finance.

At the event, Middleton wore a pink and cream gown by Gucci and gave a brief speech about the importance of education.

“The scientific and other evidence is clear,” she said. “The first few years of a child’s life are more pivotal for development and for future health and happiness than any other single moment in our lifetime. It is also clear that the positive development of our children is also linked to those who care for them: teachers, careers and parents. And as we’ve heard today, it is therefore vital that we support teachers with their own wellbeing so that they can provide the best level of care for all children in their schools and communities in which they work.”

The event took place shortly after Middleton attended a conference for the Royal Foundation’s Mental Health in Education, where she wore a tweed blazer and skirt by Dolce and Gabbana.

We have no doubt Princess Diana would be proud.
