Duchess of Cambridge Attends 42nd Street West End Premiere for EACH
As patron of East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices, the Duchess of Cambridge was present for the opening night of the hit musical 42nd Street at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane on London’s West End on Tuesday night.
Catherine – who wore a red full-skirted cocktail dress from Marchesa – was welcomed by the show’s co-producer and director, and was presented with a copy of the show program by 12-year-old Ollie Duell, who receives care from EACH’s Milton hospice.
The Duchess watched the show – which had its first run in 1980 on Broadway before being reproduced around the world over the following three and a half decades, and won multiple Tony Awards – from the theatre’s Royal Box, before joining the cast on stage at the end of performance where she was presented with her own pair of tap shoes.
The opening night of 42nd Street was held in aid of EACH’s Nook Appeal, to raise funds for a new hospice centre.Filed under The United Kingdom
