Today, Kate Middleton and Wills finally broke free of the mansion for their first official date night since baby George was born. For the occasion, Kate slipped into a long, sparkly Jenny Packham dress and William wore...whatever, does it really matter what he wore? Fine, it was a very nice tux. Royal watchers will note that Jenny Packham also custom-designed the blue-and-white polka-dot dress Kate wore when she first debuted George outside the hospital.
The occasion was the Tusk Foundation Awards dinner at The Royal Society in London. The organization is Prince William's pet cause and supports conservation efforts across Africa.
