Kate Middleton Shines in a Cutout Dress at First Solo Royal Engagement

Kate Middleton attended a party at Clarence House.

Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, was the belle of a charity ball last night in London. At Kate's first-ever official solo royal engagement, she mingled with guests at an event for In Kind Direct at Clarence House. She showed a bit of skin in a gorgeous cut-out gown that was a vintage pick from one of her favorite designers, Amanda Wakeley. She was a stand-in for her father-in-law Prince Charles, who was due to attend but had to pull out for an emergency trip to the Middle East. Prince Charles went to Riyadh to visit with the Saudi Arabian royal family after the passing of their crown prince. Kate did a great favor for Charles as he founded In Kind Direct. The organization aspires to get companies to donate surplus goods for philanthropic purposes.

The coming weekend will be a special one for Kate and her husband Prince William. Saturday is Kate and William's six-month wedding anniversary. To mark the big day, we're looking back at what they've been up to since April 29!
