Royal Blue! Princess Kate Hosts Dazzling Dinner for Olympic Hopefuls at Kensington Palace

Princess Kate – and a group of former and hopeful Olympic athletes – lit up Kensington Palace at a landmark dinner on Wednesday evening.

Kate, wearing a royal blue dress from Roland Mouret, helped host the glamorous occasion in the King’s Gallery of the palace’s state apartments to celebrate the 40th anniversary of one of her key charities, SportsAid which works to help British athletes overcome financial challenges and give them motivation to succeed during the early stages of their careers. Sports-loving Kate became the royal patron of the charity in 2013.

“Some of you may know that I love sport,” Kate said in her remarks. “I love cheering on teams and athletes that I am passionate about. I love the physical challenge sport presents and the mental strength it gives us all. And I love the way it so often brings people together to work as part of a team.
“The brilliance of SportsAid is in really understanding just how much athletic competition gives to our country as a whole,” she continued. “By investing in young sporting talent, they ensure that there is a strong pipeline of inspirational heroes.”
