While we all love it when Duchess Catherine steps out in one of her recycled outfits, we must admit we do love a new, beautiful ballgown.

The Duchess of Cambridge was pretty in pink in her stunning Gucci gown as she attended the annual 100 Women in Finance event held at the Victoria and Albert Museum, of which she is patron.

Along with her trademark bouncy waves, Duchess Catherine accessorised her dress with a pair of Oscar de la Renta pumps and a pair of earrings by Kiki McDonough that you may recognise if you’re a super fan of her wardrobe- the royal mum-of-three wore the same ones to her sister Pippa Middleton’s wedding back in 2016.

Flying solo without husband Prince William, Duchess Catherine, who is also the royal patron of 100 Women in Finance’s Philanthropic Initiatives, was the guest of honour at the fundraising dinner for The Royal Foundation’s Heads Together programme ‘Mentally Healthy Schools’.

The programme aims to help people of all ages talk more freely about mental health, a cause she, Prince William and Prince Harry have been passionate about since 2012 when they spearheaded Heads Together.

Duchess Catherine has attended three previous galas held by the 100 Women in Finance’s Philanthropic Initiatives. In fact she even remarked, “This time last year I was still pregnant!” to 100WF’s CEO Amanda Pullinger and Chair of its Global Association Board, Lauren Malafronte.

It’s been a week of ballgowns for the royal who cut a stylish figure at the BAFTA Awards in a white asymmetrical gown, designed by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen. She also accessorised with her late mother-in-law Princess Diana’s diamond-encrusted pearl-drop earrings, adding a sentimental touch.

Earlier that day, Duchess Catherine attended The Royal Foundation’s ‘Mental Health in Education’ conference dressed in a chic Chanel suit paired with her favourite Tod’s classic black suede block-heel pumps and a matching black suede clutch.

But it was during a roundtable discussion that the duchess revealed something that many parents will be able to relate to.

Speaking to mental health professionals, the Duchess of Cambridge admitted, “When I first started out and I’ve learnt a lot in a short period of time working with organisations, I was very naive myself as a parent, of really just how important particularly the early years are for children’s futures.”

“And how critical it is, everyone looking after children at a critical time, teachers, parents, and everyone who’s caring for them, how important it is that we get it right,” she added.
