Kate Middleton wore a black Alexander McQueen gown today for The Sun's Military Awards in London. She looked gorgeous in the black, strapless number made of velvet, while her husband, Prince William, was decked out in a tux. Prince William's brother Harry also attended the event after a dramatic weekend that included helping his friend, Thomas van Straubenzee, after a mugging in South London. Earlier today, though, Harry was able to spend a peaceful day with family. The royal family had a pre-Christmas meal that Queen Elizabeth organises annually for her relatives.
Today's ceremony was especially important to the princes, as they're both active duty military men themselves. The proceedings, which are taking place at London's Imperial War Museum, celebrate the good work of Britain's servicemen and women. Other famous faces, like David Beckham and his sons, turned out to hear a speech from Harry. Prince Harry honoured the military attendees, saying, "I am a young Army officer, a serving soldier. Like my brother, I share many of the same hopes, the same aspirations to go on operations, and the same fears as all those who serve our Queen and country . . . By an accident of birth, though, it falls to 564673 Captain Wales humbly to express — on behalf of my comrades-in-arms and people up and down the country — the admiration we feel for the extraordinary men and women we honour here tonight."
