The elegant gown featured a classic sweetheart neckline, flattering black velvet waistband and sheer lace long sleeves.

The delicate ballgown was accessorised with pearl drop earrings by Erdem, which the 37-year-old wore to open the new Photography Centre at the V&A in October 2018.

Kate's hair has been styled into glamorous curls and the mum-of-three sported a more dramatic make-up look than usual as smokey winged eyeliner finished off the look.

The Duke of Cambridge also coordinated with his wife, wearing a sleek black tuxedo.

It was only the third time Kate had attended the event in aid of the Royal Variety Charity, which gives support to those who've worked professionally in the entertainment industry and are in need of help.

The 37-year-old first attended in 2014, when she wore a demure black lace floor length gown by American designer, Diane von Furstenberg. For her second appearance in 2017, Kate had a princess perfect moment in a heavily embellished powder blue gown by British designer, Jenny Packham.

The Royal Variety has been attended by members of the Royal Family since 1912, last year the occasion was attended by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, who was pregnant with baby Archie at the time.
