Kate Steps Out Last-Minute Alongside William to Launch New Charity

On Thursday morning, Prince William and Kate stepped out to support the launch of a new charity tackling the response to disasters in the U.K.

The new independent charity has been set up in the wake of a string of tragedies, including the five killed in the Westminster Bridge attack in March 2017 and the 72 lives lost in the Grenfell blaze just three months later.

The couple began their day at the launch of the National Emergencies Trust at St Martin-in-the-Fields church in Central London.

For the occasion, Kate donned a belted royal blue dress and patent black heels. She completed her look with a matching black clutch and a pair of gorgeous diamond and sapphire earrings that match her engagement ring.
