The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, both 31, looked better than ever on their first night out together since Prince George was born attending The Tusk Conservation Awards at The Royal Society in London on Thursday, Sept. 12. An eyewitness tells Us Weekly that William and his wife "looked very relaxed together". Kate stunned in a pale gold sequined Jenny Packham dress, reportedly worth about $240.
The couple greeted a group of wildlife conservationists and in the lobby and chatted with Gabon President Ali Bongo Ondimba. When he asked about their less than two-month-old son, Prince George, the Duke replied, "We've left him at home for the first time,". When asked who their son looked like most, Middleton replied, "Like most babies, he's got a mix of both of us."
William and Katherine sat next to Ondimba and his glamorous wife, Sylvia. The meal included a tomato consomme with celeriac custard and spiced avocado puree for the starter, and Elwy Valley Lamb for the main course. Speaking to the crowd later, William joked about being a new dad. "As you might have gathered, Catherine and I have recently become proud parents -- of a baby who has a voice to match any lion's roar!" he said. "This is actually our first evening out without him, so please excuse us if you see us nervously casting cheeky glances at our mobile phone to check all is well back home."
"Kate was still smiling and waved to a few members of the public waiting on the pavement as their car pulled away." a witness told Us. A lovely end to a glamorous first evening out.
