Duchess Catherine and Prince William are one of the world's most loved couples, and on nights like these we can see exactly why.
Stepping out at the annual Royal Variety Performance in London on Monday evening, Kate and William were the image of perfection as they smiled and waved to guests.
And for us, there were two things we couldn't help but revel in - Kate's heavenly lace dress, and the rare (and sneaky!) PDAs she and Wills shared.
The royal parents-of-three glammed up for the annual performance, held at London's Palladium Theatre, with Kate wearing a beautiful long sleeve gown featuring a fitted bodice and lace detailing.
The Duchess wore her hair in loose waves, and accessorised with a gorgeous pair of golden hoop earrings adorned with pearls - heavenly!

During the evening, the pair were event spotted putting on some rare PDA - a feat not often indulged in between the poised royal couple!

During the performance, Kate and Wills were seen roaring with laughter as comedic acts were shown.
Hosted by comedians Rob Beckett and Romesh Ranganathan, the evening included acts by Robbie Williams, Emeli Sandé and even the cast of Mary Poppins.
Kate and Wills were all smiles as they chatted to guests at the performance.
Kate and Wills are regular attendees at the royal variety performance, having enjoyed the show, which is broadcast on national television, a number of times since they were married in 2011.
During the evening, the pair even spilled some sweet anecdotes about their three children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.
According to HELLO!, Kate revealed how her kids were feeling about their parents leaving them for date night.
The royal said her kids had been very excited at the prospect of all the singing and dancing their parents would see, and had even requested to come.
Kate apparently told them, "not on a school night!".
