The dinner was hosted in The Orangery at Kensington Palace. As per the Court Circular the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge attended a charity lunch function for The Royal Foundation earlier in the day.

Before the dinner Kensington Palace said,” Earlier this year Her Royal Highness, who is Patron of the AFNCCF, visited the centre’s Early Years Parenting Unit to learn more about their work with families who have children under five years old. This visit marked the Duchess’ continued desire to draw attention to child mental health issues and the importance that early intervention, and working with the whole family, can make to those in vulnerable situations.”
