Will and Kate pack a powerful financial punch
If anyone had any doubt about the Midas touch of Kate and William, you need only look at their impact when they show up for dinner.
The event at St. James’s Palace brought in close to $1.1 million.
About 300 women from the hedge fund industry had their dinner with the prince and Kate, who went very formal for the affair with a floor-length red gown by Beulah London (retail price: $950).
The 100 Women in Hedge Funds, an international organization, has a three-year commitment to the Prince’s charities and, as long as he keeps showing up to dinner with Kate, their financial future is assured.
“I find it enormously rewarding and gratifying to observe how two organizations which mean so much to me are working so superbly with one another,” William told his dinner crowd. “What you are both doing together to alleviate the suffering of children who have lost family members, and bereaved families who have experienced the tragedy of losing a child, is beyond praise.”
Meanwhile, Kate’s sister Pippa was also attending a charity event in London, the Too Many Women event to raise funds for Breakthrough Breast Cancer. Pippa, too, went with a floor-length gown, this one by Dannii Minogue. You can catch some pix of her here.
