The Winter Whites Gala saw the Royal Albert Hall transform into a Winter Wonderland, featuring some of the biggest names in sport and entertainment. Tennis greats Novak Djokovic and John McEnroe, along with British Women's No. 1 Heather Watson, all expressed their delight at Kate's pregnancy. We all know the Duchess is a huge tennis fan and was sad to be unable to attend.

The event is in aid of homeless charity Centrepoint, a patronage of Prince William's. At the end of the evening the Prince will present tennis player Novak Djokovic with the Centrepoint Premier Award for Contribution to the Lives of Youth Across the World. Kate's brother James Middleton was also in attendance.

Once inside the hall, Prince William spoke to Michael O Higgins, former chairman of Centrepoint about Kate's illness:
'They shouldn't call it morning sickness, it should be called day and all night sickness. It's a long old process but she is getting there. She feels like it is going to go on forever'.
No doubt Kate had a stunning gown chosen for the event. Unfortunately we won't get to see it tonight but I had thought this Jenny Packham Bridal Spring/Summer 2013 gown would have been a splendid choice. Very much the style of garment Kate loves and perfect for the Winter Whites Gala.

William and Kate grace the cover of a special edition of Hello! Magazine.
I sincerely hope Kate is feeling better and getting plenty of rest. It has not yet been decided whether Kate will attend the premiere of 'The Hobbit' or not. I'm sure it will depend on how she's feeling on the day.
