Finally! On October 26, 2011, H.R.H. The Duchess of Cambridge attended a private dinner for the charity, In Kind Direct, held at Clarence House… this was her first “solo” engagement that many royal watchers have waited for. According to the official website for In Kind Direct the Duchess:
…stepped in for The Prince of Wales. The Prince of Wales was unable to attend owing to a trip to Saudi Arabia to present his condolences to the Saudi Arabian Royal Family following the death of The Crown Prince. source
In case you are wondering who designed her dress… I have no idea. Don’t care. The event is more important than her outfit, in my opinion.
