Royal couple make first offical appearance

The Duke and Duchess arrive at the fancy dinner

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have made their first 'official' appearance since the royal wedding in April.

And it was the perfect event for a new Duke and Duchess - they attended a very glamorous dinner in London.

Wills and Kate were at the event to support a charity that aims to help poorer children around the world to get a start in life.

All eyes were on the new couple all night - and Kate was said to have looked dazzling in her dress.

Kate was said to look 'dazzling'. William looked very smart too!

They arrived at the event, held at Kennsington Palace which is owned by the Queen, in a limo and the waiting photographers went wild!

It seemed like everyone was waiting to get a glimpse of the Duke and Duchess.

The glamorous Kate didn't disappoint in floor-length shimmering gown, fit for the red carpet.

William made a speech for all the guests to try and raise awareness of the children's charity, called Ark.

When it was time to eat, the couple sat and chatted amongst celebs, artists and royalty from other countries.
