It was a stylish affair: before Kate arrived a string quartet welcomed guests inside the main entrance of the museum in South Kensington.

‎The 33-year-old Duchess is a patron of 100 Women in Hedge Funds' Philanthropic Initiatives.

Tonight's gala dinner and earlier reception was in aid of another of her charities, The Art Room, which uses art therapy to build the confidence of vulnerable children experiencing emotional and behavioural difficulties. She became patron of The Art Room in 2012.

Among the guests was Grayson Perry, the transvestite potter, who is a patron of The Art Room and has met the Duchess ‎on several occasions. He was wearing a shimmering silver dress.

Kate was due to present the 100WHF 2015 European Leadership Award before dinner. She also posed for a photograph with the 20-strong board of 100 Women In Hedge Funds.

The fund is a non-profit organisation for professionals in the alternative investments industry.

Its board of directors selects a charitable organization for its philanthropic initiative each year on a rotating basis from women's and family health, mentoring and education programmes.

It is one of the key charities favoured by Prince William, Kate and Prince Harry.

William became patron of 100 Women in Hedge Funds’ Philanthropic Initiatives in 2009 and, in 2012, The Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry joined him to become patrons for an additional three years. 

Later, during a break between courses, Kate presented the 100WHF 2015 European Leadership Award ‎to Elizabeth Corley, chief executive officer of Allianz Global Investors, for her work mentoring future leaders of the investment banking industry.
