Kate chose her favourite Temperley dress to wear on her first visit as patron to the Natural History Museum


Kate Middleton donned her favourite Alice Temperley dress last night, as she attended the screening for David Attenborough’s Natural History Museum Alive 3D.

The floor-length, black lace number was first worn by Kate for the War Horse premiere in January 2012. Later the same year the Duchess stepped out in the same dress for a fundraising event for St Andrews University, where Kate and William first met. If we found a dress we looked that good in, we'd want to wear it practically every day.

Kate, who is patron of the museum, and William, left their nearly five-month-old baby at home for the evening, as they joined a selection of other guests at the screening. The film, which will be aired on TV on New Year's Day, shows prehistoric creatures come to life as David Attenborough takes a tour around the iconic London museum after dark.

Speaking about the film, David Attenborough said: I have been coming to the Natural History Museum since I was a boy. In this film we have the technology to bring back to life some of the most romantic and extraordinary extinct creatures that can be conceived; some are relatively recent animals like the dodo, others older like the dinosaurs, and some we only know through fossil evidence. I hope that it will make people think about these extinct creatures differently and bring the Museum to life in a new and exciting way.'

It sounds like perfect New Year's Day viewing to us.

The film we air at 6.30pm on New Year’s Day on Sky 3D and in 2D on Sky 1 HD
