What the heck is the woman in the third picture down wearing around her neck? Looks like roadkill.
Dowton Abbey stars?

I think people look great in Ralph Lauren - but then I am American. But I do think his clothes flatter the general body shape of both men and women.
It looked like people were a bit warm in some of these photos. Not a warm day in London, though.

Fabulous occasion, and very gracious of the Duke to host an evening supporting the Hospital and thanking its benefactors.
What a shame Cara Delavigne chose to look like a Crack addict... she COULD look beautiful

Funny, this... and it ran to three tweets
Rebecca English ‏@RE_DailyMail 1h Just love this: Helena Bonham Carter said tonight she had met William and Kate before they married while holidaying on Mustique.....

.Rebecca English ‏@RE_DailyMail 1h .....'I got very drunk at one point and I was determined to ask him to be a godfather to my daughter,' she said. 'He quite wisely said no.'
Rebecca English ‏@RE_DailyMail 1h
Have to say, every time I have met Helena Bonham Carter she has been a delight to talk to - funny and self depreciating. William, say yes!

Cara Delavigne appears in the sixth photo...

I think the 'roadkill' woman is the current Mrs Lauren

No on roadkill: http://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2014/...74_964x830.jpg

And as to "current" status for Mrs. Lauren - they have been married since 1964.

For those who ask why did #Kate not attend #RoyalMarsden #PrinceWilliam bash - the couple like separate gigs to spread influence more widely

A couple of journos have said this on twitter tonite.

For it to make any sense at all, Catherine needs to get some solo "gigs" in her diary - pronto!

This makes sense to me. It also serves to remind folks (especially with this past one which seemed to be more on a celebratory/party level) that William and Kate attending are as representative of The Queen and they're not just there to party.

I'm sure that Kate will be out and about in the near future but her primary duty and responsibility is with George and I think both William and Kate are very serious about being his primary care givers and the nanny is there to assist rather than do all the child rearing. The Cambridges are definitely very hands on parents.

Oh, absolutely . This is a cause that William is passionate about, so it's lovely to see him host this dinner.

I'm sure announcements will be made.

Maybe so, but I don't see why Kate can't attend at least a weekly event?
Surely that isn't too taxing and would still give her lots of time to spend with George.

Tonight A-listers galore will descend on Windsor Castle in what one royal-watcher has described as a “perfect” mingling of royalty, charity and celebrity.

Invited to the glittering gala dinner, hosted by the Duke of Cambridge to celebrate the pioneering work and fund-raising of Britain’s leading cancer hospital, the Royal Marsden, are Cate Blanchett, Benedict Cumberbatch, Emma Watson, Mario Testino and Helena Bonham Carter, as well as rock stars, City moguls and multi-millionaire philanthropists.

I think Pr George is hardly the reason why she didn´t attend. But it´s her husband who is patron of the Royal Marsden, and not she.
When Catherine is doing her Nat. Portrait Gallery engagements,for instance, William is not joining her either.

As the royal reporters have mention before, they are focusing on their own charities. The sub museum, royal mardsen, FA cup- those are all William's. When did William go to one of Kate's- probably when they went to the Natural History Museum to watch the 3D movie. Plus if Kate went to the Windsor event yesterday, how many stories would there be about what she wore and look Kate is meeting Kate Moss and Cate Blanchet. The reason for the event won't be hardly mentioned.

William isn't worried about where the attention would've gone if Catherine had attended. The idea is for them to support their own charities. We see The Queen, Philip, Charles and many members of the royal family doing the same thing. It has nothing to do with who would've stolen the spotlight.

I totally agree that William wouldn't care that Kate stole the spotlight. However, I think that both of them would want the spotlight to be on the cause that they are highlighting. Focusing on the cause is especially difficult for the media when Kate is involved. Look at the coverage when they went to Manly in Australia. Most of the papers focused on the "baywatch" moment instead of the hospice visit.
