The Duchess of White: Kate Attends Premiere of ‘Street Cat Named Bob’
The Duchess of Cambridge has this evening attended the premiere of A Street Cat Named Bob at the Curzon Cinema in Mayfair, which was held in support of one of her patronages, Action on Addiction.
Wearing a white floor-length gown with a pleated skirt from label Self Portrait, Kate met with the actors, filmmakers and real-life inspiration behind the film, which tells the story of James Bowen, a busker recovering from a drug addiction when he takes in and nurses a stray cat back to health before the pair become a popular ‘double act’ and their fortunes begin to rise.
“Is that purring or growling?” Kate asked Mr Bowen as she stroked the head of the real-life Bob, who appeared completely unfazed by all the attention he was receiving.
Earlier, the Duchess was present at a special screening of films in The Recovery Street Film Festival, which features “films made by former addicts and their loved ones about life in recovery from addiction.”Filed under The United Kingdom
