For the occasion, Kate stunned in a $790 CAD sequined cherry red evening gown and coordinating crimson accessories.

The glitzy gown was by British brand, Needle and Thread, who are known for exquisitely embellished evening wear at mid-range prices - dresses retailing between $400 and $900 CAD.

Kate’s Aurora Gown, which featured long sleeves, a flattering A-line silhouette and frill lace detail is available to purchase for $790 CAD — but hurry, the cherry colour is currently only available in size 4 and 6 U.K. sizes.

The design also comes in four other colours: dusk blue, blossom, silver and black. However, the dress is currently only in stock in red, black and silver — and likely not for long.

Kate kept her look tonal, opting to accessorize with red suede Gianvito Rossi pumps, which are available to buy for $950 CAD, plus a red clutch bag and earrings.  

The event was also attended by numerous other royal family members, including Prince Edward, Sophie Countess of Wessex and Princess Anne.
