Prince William and Kate Middleton were dressed to impress for the Ark dinner last night at London's Kensington Palace. Kate kicked off the day running errands in a much more casual dress, checking items off her to-do list before this evening. It's her and William's first official social engagement as a married couple, though they have done some less formal work as a royal pair. Prince William and Kate Middleton welcomed the Obamas to Buckingham Palace last month, but they sat out the lavish state events that were part of the president and first lady's visit. For yesterday's event, Kate was decked out in a Jenny Packham gown and looked gorgeous with her hair styled out with blow-dried curls. William made his first speech as a married man at the mea, announcing a new project from the Foundation of Prince William and Prince Harry. The dinner is an ultra-exclusive event in England where tickets can cost up to US$14,500, and it's planned to feature music from Mark Ronson following the presentations and dining. There might be a snafu for Mark, though, since he tweeted that his DJ kit was stolen last night and he can't perform without it!
