Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, hit the red carpet for Steven Spielberg’s latest film “War Horse” premiere at London’s Leicester Square on a rainy Sunday night.

Prince William, always the gentleman he is, held an umbrella for his wife. Not only did that protect Kate from the cold rain, but it also framed how beautiful she looked in this Temperley London black lace gown:

Yes, this look is conservative and what we always see from Kate Middleton, but she always looks stunning. That’s not so easy, considering how aging and tedious it can be always to look prim and proper.

And like Taylor Swift, who always prefers and always pulls off the princess look, Kate Middleton’s traditional style works for her and needs no fixing because it ain’t broken.

We also love that Kate Middleton used the same Pretty Ballerina black velvet clutch we spotted on her when she attended The Sun Military Awards.

This time, she matched it with a slim black velvet belt and reportedly also wore black velvet-y suede pumps from Jimmy Choo:

We have a feeling that this Temperley London dress will be in great demand or, at the very least, there will be copies of it.
