Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton says son and royal burp cloth user Prince George was “such a good boy” when he was christened.
While Kate Middleton is slowly getting back to the business of being married to a young man in line for the throne, leaving baby George at home asleep as she got back out on the charity gala circuit.
Appearing at the Kensington Palace State Apartments in a formal black and teal gown, Middleton is getting back into the swing of her duties as Duchess of Cambridge after George’s July arrival.
“After baptizing her little boy Prince George yesterday at Chapel Royal in St. James’ Palace, the Duchess of Cambridge returned to her royal duties by attending the 100 Women in Hedge Funds (100WHF) philanthropic initiatives event at the Kensington Palace State Apartments in London… The evening was held in aid of charity Action on Addiction in association with the 100WHF, both of which Kate is a patron, but the new mom made sure to mention yesterday’s special festivities at the beginning of the night.”
Kate stepped out for the 100 Women in Hedge Funds (100WHF) Action On Addiction event, at which she spoke of the issues addiction causes for sufferers and families.
Middleton has explained before:
“Addiction is a hugely complex and destructive disease and its impact can be simply devastating. All too often, lives and families can be shattered by it. Research has shown that children of those who are addicted are seven times more likely to have addiction problems themselves. They are also brought up surrounded by fear, instability and chaos.”
The Duchess also dished on the baby, and his behavior at the christening — photos of which had not been released prior to the evening gala.
Kate says that baby George was a well-behaved guest of honor — but she also admits he isn’t always an easy child:
“He was such a good boy actually. We were very lucky, he’s not always like that.”
Amanda Pullinger is the executive director of 100 Women in Hedge Funds, and she said of Middleton’s appearance:
“We are honoured that the Duchess of Cambridge has once again lent her support to 100 Women in Hedge Funds for our London gala, and particularly as one of her first public appearances since the birth of her son. Action on Addiction is an enormously worthy cause and I’m delighted that this evening’s event is such a success.”
