Kate Middleton began her afternoon with the Queen, Meghan Markle, and other royal family members at the Commonwealth Day service at Westminster Abbey. Tonight, Kate is on duty again, hosting a dinner gala for Place2Be at Buckingham Palace, in honor of the organization's 25th anniversary.

The Duchess of Cambridge opted for a glitzy dress for the occasion, wearing a navy blue gown with a beaded top. Her hair was down, and she accessorized with dangle earrings.

Kate's two events today come after the Duchess of Cambridge spent three days last week in Ireland for her and Prince William's royal tour of the country. The Duchess of Cambridge wore two evening looks in Dublin during her visit, opting for a green metallic dress by The Vampire Wife during her first night reception at Guinness Storehouse's Gravity Bar.
