Following their successful appearance at the annual St. Patrick's Day parade at Mons Barracks, Aldershot, The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge joined Prince Harry at Buckingham Palace Monday night where they attended their foundation chairman's dinner. The Duchess wore a long white dress, thought be her Roland Mouret 'Ella' Gown. It was a private event, therefore the Palace did not release photos nor were members of the press invited.
In other news, the Duke and Duchess personally donated £5,000 towards the Rhyl Flood Appeal. The surprise donation has helped boost the fund‘s tally to £50,000, which will be put towards helping families piece their lives back together after freak waves battered the town last December. Rhyl, located in North Wales, is just an hour from William and Kate's former home in Anglesey.
More from The Daily Post:
'Cllr Rutherford said he is "touched" by the fact that money is still coming in three months after the deluge and was "gob smacked" to receive a personal donation from Prince William and Kate.
A direct quote from the letter sent from Kensington Palace says: "The Duke and Duchess realise that it is a long, slow and painful process for the many people displaced from their homes and as a token of their support, and to show the people of Rhyl that they are in their thoughts, Their Royal Highnesses would like to make a personal donation to your Rhyl Town Mayor's Flood Appeal.'
Anyone wishing to donate to the appeal can find out more here.
Prince William carried out an investiture on behalf of The Queen and dubbed the man who delivered Prince George, Sir Marcus Setchell, a Knight Commander of the Royal Victorian Order, an honour personally bestowed by The Queen.
More from The Mirror:
'Afterwards, Setchell said William told him George was a "bouncing baby". He said about working for The Queen and her family: "Well of course it's a great honour and it's very nice that I was able to serve her for 24 years and that the culmination of it was that Prince George should be born.'
Speaking of Prince George, the little Prince has started crawling, a huge milestone indeed. The news has led to speculation William and Kate may have missed their son crawling while they were in the Maldives.

I do hope they didn't miss George's first crawl. All the 'firsts' are incredibly special for parents.
For the remaining portion of the post we'll be taking a look at tour style possibilities from labels favoured by the Duchess (we'll be looking at New Zealand designers shortly). First up, a designer we mentioned earlier - the supremely talented Roland Mouret. I'm very excited about the designer's latest offerings. Below we look at the Pariba Wool-Crepe Dress and the Pink Afyon Dress. The colours of both of these dresses are just beautiful.
Roland Mouret's designs are all about exquisite tailoring and structuring whilst complimenting the female figure. Five excellent examples of this are the sharp and sleek Sirus Dress, the elegant Wezen Dress, the one shoulder Pernice Dress, the Abbotsford Crepe Dress and the Auriga Wrap Dress.
As we previously mentioned this tour is a rather informal one, with a number of receptions which will require smart dresses and Roland Mouret's pieces would be very much ideal choices for these. Let's take a look at the multicoloured Alsafi Dress, the Navona Dress, the vibrant Cajeput Dress, and the Electra Dress.
There's endless potential from the designer's evening wear, too. Wouldn't Kate look fantastic in the Phoenix and Henderson gowns?
Finally from Mr. Mouret, the Mirah and Hexam gowns. The lace detail adds a lovely touch to these designs and they would work very well in a variety of colours.
Next we look at spring styles from L.K. Bennett. The Duchess is a huge fan of the brand and not just because of their very comfortable sledge pumps. The brand is a go-to for so many women, whether they're searching for a professional yet chic working wardrobe or sophisticated workwear. Below we see the Mason Event Coat, the Houston Lace Trim Dress, the Armol Event Coat, and the embellished sleeveless Embu Dress.
The current collection includes pretty colours and floral prints. The Malone Dress is a '60s style, square-neck dress with a punchy print. The £275 Bally Dress is also '60s inspired and comes in coral pink and yellow, and the Denver Print Dress is a silk frock with stripes and floral print.
New arrivals in the brand's footwear section offer a selection of court shoes, summer sandals and stylish wedges. The Floret Saffiano Patent Leather Point Toe Shoes and the Estela Peep Toe Wedges would both be good choice for the Duchess.
We leave you with a link to Popsugar's 'Which Royal Are You?' Quiz. One of our regular commenters, Bluhare, kindly shared it a few days ago and it's excellent fun! I came up as Kate; which royal are you? :)
