The Duchess of Cambridge, 40, attended an award ceremony hosted by the British Fashion Council at London’s Design Museum. Kate will present the award, which was first given by the king in 2018.

The Duchess looked stunning in a green belted gown for a royal engagement.

The 40-year-old woman combined her dress with a pair of heels and a clutch bag of the same color.

Kate wears her shiny brown hair straight over her shoulders and completes it with gold earrings.

The mother of three smiled when she arrived at the event.

Kate will present the Queen Elizabeth II Award for British Design, which aims to recognize the role culture and commerce have played by the British design and fashion industries during the king’s reign.

The inaugural award was presented to Richard Quinn in February 2018 when the Queen made her first visit to London Fashion Week.

In this year’s Platinum Jubilee, the award will be given by Kate to a rising British designer.

During the event, the Duchess will meet and view recipient designs from the British Fashion Council Foundation’s designer initiatives – NEWGEN, the Fashion Trust and the BFC/Vogue Designer Fashion Fund and the BFC/GQ Designer Fashion Fund.

The fund provides financial support to up-and-coming designers, providing opportunities and guidance as they work to build their brands.

Previous winners include Alexander McQueen and Erdem.

Camilla, Princess Anne and Sophie have previously presented the Queen Elizabeth II Award for British Design.

Kate’s engagement on Wednesday comes as she and Prince William will attend the official unveiling of the anniversary of the 22 people killed in the Manchester Arena terror attack.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will gather at a service in the Glade of Light – a white marble “hello” bearing the names of those killed in the May 2017 anger – on May 10, just before the fifth anniversary of the atrocity.

William would speak at the short ceremony and Kate would lay flowers.

The couple will also join a private reception inside Manchester Cathedral afterwards to speak to some of the bereaved families and those involved in the response effort.

The veneration, which opened to the public in January, is located next to the cathedral and is designed to follow international competitions.

A personalized memory capsule, filled with memories and mementos of those killed given by their loved ones, has been embedded in the stone.

It is conceived as a living memorial – a peaceful garden space for memories and reflection, featuring plants that grow naturally in the English countryside chosen to provide color throughout the year and echo the changing seasons.

Around the anniversary of each year, May 22, the white flowers of the hawthorn tree planted in the center will bloom.

Hundreds of people were injured along with 22 who died, including six children under 16 with the youngest just eight, in Salman Abedi’s suicide bomb attack at the end of an Ariana Grande concert.
