Prince William wore a black tux to the event, but Duchess Kate stood out in a black, lace Alexander McQueen floor-length gown with a sultry scooped back.
According to People, some believe the dress was a special nod to her relationship. Her wedding dress was also embroidered with lace and designed by the British fashion house.

The Duke and Duchess met performers of the cast of Mary Poppins and Come From Away as well as Mary Poppins, Lewis Capaldi, Mabel, Robbie Williams, while there was a special performance by Emeli Sandé and Manchester's Bee Vocal choir too. The evening was hosted by comedians Rob Beckett and Romesh Ranganathan, who cracked a few jokes about the royals out on a "date night".
According to Daily Mail, Kate said though the kids would've loved to accompany their mom and dad – Charlotte, in particular, loves singing and dancing – she had to tell them, "Not on a school night."
Rob and Romesh asked whether the royals paid the babysitter "until 12 or 1", joking "It's always worth £20 for the extra hour."
Romesh also wondered if Their Royal Highnesses ever woke up in the morning as he did thinking, "Why did we do this?"
William and Kate couldn't contain themselves in the Royal Box. It looks like it was a lovely night out on the town for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
