MAYFAIR MEWMENT: The Duchess of Cambridge attended the U.K. premiere of “A Street Cat Named Bob” on Thursday at London’s Curzon Mayfair theater. The preview was in support of Action on Addiction, a charity that aids people with drug and alcohol abuse as the Duchess is a royal patron.
The charity works on development, research, prevention and treatments that help families and children suffering with addiction. The duchess is the patron of a number of organizations, in particular ones that assist young children.
She met with the staff involved in the institution as well as the actors, actresses and crew of the film. The movie is based on James Bowen’s book, a true story of how a stray cat affected the life of a homeless man, played by Luke Treadaway. The film, directed by Roger Spottiswoode and produced by Adam Rolston, also stars Joanne Froggatt and Anthony Head.
Kate Middleton wore a white lace crochet maxidress from Self-Portrait.
Last month, the Duke and Duchess were in Manchester attending a series of royal engagements. They visited Manchester’s National Football Museum, the city’s town hall and the University of Manchester. The couple toured the football museum in the Urbis building and learned about the history of the sport. They toured the National Graphene Institute at the University of Manchester, a research facility, and visited the Francis House Children’s Hospice, an institution that Princess Diana opened in 1991.
