Kate Middleton showed up at the 42nd Street opening

The Duchess Of Cambridge wowed audiences with a guest appearance at the opening night of 42nd Street.

The opening night of 42nd Street at the Theatre Royal welcomed royalty, as The Duchess Of Cambridge Kate Middleton attended to soak in the West End spectacular.

Her attendance supported the East Anglia Children’s Hospice (EACH) appeal, raising money for The Nook, a children’s hospice in Norfolk. Middleton is herself a patron of the charitable organisation.

The Duchess Of Cambridge met with guests ahead of the opening 42nd Street performance, including 12-year-old Ollie Duell, who lives with a complex medical condition.
