It was date night time for Prince William and Kate Middleton on the Tusk Conservation Awards in London on Thursday. William channeled James Bond in a flowery black tux, whereas Kate opted for a stunning turquoise Jenny Packham robe, which she first wore in 2012 for an Olympic live performance at Royal Albert Corridor. Throughout the ceremony, the royals met with the nominees and supporters of the conservation charity, and William even took the stage for a speech.
The Tusk Belief is certainly one of William’s key charities, and he is been a royal patron since 2005. The group seemingly holds a particular place in William’s coronary heart as Princess Diana was a patron of the Chipangali Wildlife Orphanage, a corporation much like the Tusk Belief that rescues and cares for orphaned, deserted, and sick wild animals. “[My mother, Diana] would come again [from Africa] with all these tales and full of pleasure and simply ardour for what she’d been doing,” William stated in a 2013 interview with CNN. “I applaud her for all her dedication and drive in doing that. And it was that, I believe, that infectious enthusiasm and the power that she had that actually rubbed off on me.” See photographs from Will and Kate’s glamorous night time out forward.
