Swapping a tweed suit for sheer silk, she then attended the 100 Women in Finance’s gala dinner in support of her efforts to bring awareness to mental health in schools.
Kate, who is patron of 100 Women in Finance’s Philanthropic Initiatives, arrived at the dinner at the historic V&A Museum in a glamorous floor-length Gucci gown featuring pale pink and mauve sheer panels and a velvet belt detail.
She also carried a matching velvet clutch.
Launched by Kate last year, the “Mentally Health Schools” program is one of the legacies of the royals’ Heads Together campaign, which helps teachers and school leaders better support children’s mental well-being.
At the conference earlier on Wednesday, Kate, 37, sat in on a number of discussions and panel sessions, including one focusing on the benefits of integrating mental health modules into teacher training courses.
Catherine Roche, chief executive of one of Kate’s key charities Place2be, said, “Providing a specific training for newly-qualified teachers helps with their understanding with how children come to school with everyday challenges — whether it’s from home life or school life.”
