Prince William & Kate Middleton: Their Royal Outings

The engaged pair step into their new public roles as beloved prince and princess-to-be


A beaming William escorts Kate to their first public event since getting engaged a month earlier: the Christmas Spectacular, a fund-raiser for the Teenager Cancer Trust, on Dec. 18 in Norfolk, England. Despite the chilly weather, the Princess-to-be is greeted with applause for cutting a stylish figure in an Alice Temperley dress – and earns even higher marks from seven young cancer patients. "They took a genuine interest in what I'd been through and the operation I had," Rosie Van Raalte, 16, from Little Melton, Norfolk, said of her encounter with the royal pair.
