Kate Middleton laughs off stumble at charity event

Prince William and Kate Middleton attended the Shout's Crisis Volunteer celebration in London on Tuesday, honoring the work of volunteers for the text support line Give Us a Shout.

Their engagement seemed to go without a hitch - that is, until the duchess lost one of her Gianvito Rossi Piper 85 sued pumps while exiting the venue and nearly went down with it.

Nancy Lublin, the CEO, and co-founder of Shout spoke out about the royal couple's important role within the service...and she shared that Shout users may have some unexpected communication with Prince William himself.

Kate looked stunning in a smart jacket by Smythe that she paired with cranberry-colored pants from Joseph.

A pair of black Gianvito Rossi block heels and Mappin & Webb drop earrings completed the winter-ready ensemble.

The 24/7 textual content assist service was launched earlier this yr by William and Kate alongside Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, as it's a legacy of the royals' profitable Heads Collectively marketing campaign. An estimated 600 conversations happen through the texting service daily, with around three-quarters of users under 25 seeking help with a variety of topics, including depression, anxiety, and self-harm.

Google Maps to receive inbuilt translation features
Translate for Google Maps is rolling out this month on both Android and iOS with 50 languages supported and more on the way. Users can continue to communicate with local people by translating subsequent phrases (such as "Thank you for your help").

It goes without saying, however, that balancing this new venture alongside Prince William's royal obligations isn't easy - and let's not forget that having three children undoubtedly keeps him pretty busy as well. The duke has always been affiliated with the organization, which is the leading charity for homelessness, as a patron. She looks happy, in control and there's a new confidence about her.

The couple's appearance this week follows a weekend packed with royal engagements for Remembrance Sunday, which commemorates Britain's fallen service men and women.

Starting this week, the Sussexes will take a six-week break from royal duties to spend baby Archie's first Thanksgiving with Meghan's family in Los Angeles.

Kate Middleton loves a luxe headband - and now one of her most popular styles is available to purchase for the first time.

Meghan and Harry are then expected to return to England to spend Christmas with the royal family in Norfolk, as per tradition.
