The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge attended the Sun Military Awards at the Imperial War Museum in London. The event is an annual awards ceremony which honors servicemen, servicewomen, and civilians for their service. The awards include, "Best Recruit," and "The Life Saver Award." The Duchess presented the award for "Most Outstanding Soldier," to Seargent Ryan McCready.
The Duke wore a black tuxedo and bowtie, while Catherine matched him in a black velvet Alexander McQueen gown. The gown featured a trimmed, sweetheart neckline, and mermaid skirt. The gown was originally sheer in the skirt section but was altered to become completely velvet for the Duchess. She matched the ensemble with a velvet bowed clutch by Pretty Ballerinas, and black suede Prada heels. She also wore jewelry, which was a wedding gift from an anonymous friend. The necklace featured diamond and ruby starburst, and she wore a diamond and ruby bracelet. Catherine wore her hair in a side part with loose curls.
