Duke and Duchess of Cambridge to attend charity dinner
Britain’s Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are set to attend a special gala dinner in Norfolk on Wednesday (22.06.16).
The royal couple – who have children Prince George, two, and Princess Charlotte, 13 months – will attend the charity dinner put on by their friends David Cholmondeley and his wife Sarah at their country home, Houghton Hall in Norfolk.
The gala, which has been titled A Taste of Norfolk, honours the East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) and is being held in celebration of the charity’s recent appeal to raise cash for its new hospice, The Nook.
The pair will tuck in to a delicious meal whipped up by a group of Michelin-star chefs along with 90 invited guests.
But, as well as the five-course dinner, guests will also enjoy a champagne reception beforehand in which there will be musical performances by the Jefford Brothers and Sam Aldersey-Williams as well as magician Archie Manners.
And after the dinner, the royal couple along with their friends will be treated to a performance from the Treehouse Choir.
Emma Deterding, event organiser and EACH patron, told PEOPLE: “I have seen at first-hand how incredible and important the development of the children’s hospice movement is since its beginnings in the 1980s. I continue to be amazed by how hard EACH works to ensure that hundreds of children with life-threatening conditions and their families in East Anglia get the best care possible.”
