Kate Middleton and Prince William have followed up their night out at the London première of African Cats with a visit to London's Goldsmiths' Hall.

The duke and duchess were at the classy reception for the Scott-Amundsen Centenary Race, which raised funds for the British Legion.

The royal couple, who are preparing to celebrate their first year anniversary on 29 April, have been busy attending a series of engagements ahead of the Queen's diamond jubilee celebrations in early June.

Kate was dressed in a blue tweed jacket with matching knee-length skirt by Rebecca Taylor teamed with colour-coordinated heels and a blue Anya Hindmarch clutch.

William, who is a patron ofthe charity, opted for a navy fitted suited, white shirt and red and black tie.

Robert Lee, a British Legion spokesman, said: "It was great for the personnel taking part in the race to know they had the duke's backing - a huge morale boost.

"The fact he's here with the Duchess of Cambridge is a great recognition of the contribution these Army personnel have made to the charity and a great boost to the fundraising effort. We expect this to lead to further donations to Battle Back."

The pair were to cap off their day at a reception at the Imperial War Museum commemorating its centenary.
