this is not my favourite appearance of kate, but she still looks lovely. however, i very much preferred this dress the last time she wore it because:

1. she looked less curvy and more slender in it (see pics below)
2. that ponytail looked slightly tacky to me this time and wished she had styled her hair differently. this is too ´cheryl cole´ material for my taste.

nevertheless, it would be hard for kate to get it completely wrong for me, and i think she still looks fab.

I like that wore her hair in the modern looking ponytail and that she recycled this dress again. The Zara necklace is one of the largest pieces I've ever seen her wear.

I agree. One of Nelson Mandela's daughters was also present tonight at the premiere.

Just curious, does anyone know if the movie was over when Nelson Mandela's death was announced? I am wondering if it was announced at the theater?

According to Katie Nicholl, they made the announcement after the movie ended.

Quote:
katienicholl: We were delivered the news as the credits rolled. Silence here in the cinema where the royal couple have just watched Mandela. RIP
ETA: Richard Palmer just tweeted that aides informed William and Kate during the screening.

Prince William spoke after the screening: "I just wanted to say it's extremely sad and tragic news. We were just reminded what an extraordinary and inspiring man Nelson Mandela was. My thoughts and prayers are with him and his family."

It was very nice of William & Catherine to pay tribute to Mandela and show their support to the family on this very moving day.

I feel bad for President Mandela's daughters; it doesn't sound like they thought their father would die so quickly. Although obviously with him being so ill they would have known there was a chance this could have happened.

It reflects well on William and Kate's aides, IMO, that they ensured the royal couple was told the news well in advance of them being questioned by the press. I'm sure William would have been able to come up with an appropriate statement regardless, but it's always more professional to not be taken by surprise.

I agree. Apparently the couple was informed before the film ended. I hope that Mandela's daughters were able to exit without much attention from the press.

This is from The Times

As the final credits rolled, Anant Singh stepped in front of the screen, where he was joined by the director, Justin Chadwick, and the British actor Idris Elba, who plays Mandela in the film. “President Zuma has announced that Madiba passed away peacefully,” Mr Singh said, prompting gasps and tears from the crowd.

He explained that Zenani and Zindzi, President Mandela’s daughters, had left before the screening started and, reached by telephone in their hotel room, had insisted that the film should not be stopped. A minute’s silence was then held in the cinema.

Kate is visiting Shooting Star House Children's Hospice this afternoon, and William is in Aldershot visiting Mons Barracks this morn.

Video:
Only hours before the death of Nelson Mandela was announced the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge walked the red carpet for the annual Royal Film Performance and UK premiere of 'Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom'. The stars of the film, Idris Elba who plays Nelson Mandela and Naomie Harris, who plays his wife Winnie, walked the carpet and talked to reporters at the event-
