The Duchess chatted to the invited guests about the success of Wednesday’s christening, which took place at the historic Chapel Royal at St James’s Palace. Her Royal Highness is a patron of both Action on Addiction and 100WHF, an organisation for professionals in the alternative investments industry.

The Duchess presented Dame Amelia Fawcett with the 100 Women in Hedge Funds’ 2013 European Industry Leadership Award.

Amanda Pullinger, the 100 Women in Hedge Funds executive director, said: “We are honoured that The Duchess of Cambridge has once again lent her support to 100 Women in Hedge Funds for our London gala, and particularly as it is one of her first public appearances since the birth of her son.”

Action on Addiction is involved in tackling addiction through research, prevention, treatment, professional education and family support. It has centres in Dorset, London, Merseyside and Wiltshire.

The Duke of Cambridge and Prince Harry are also patrons of 100 Women in Hedge Funds’ philanthropic initiatives. It is focusing on helping Action on Addiction in 2013, WellChild in 2014 and The Art Room in 2015.
