Kate’s sweet response to little girl’s funny question about her dressed-down outfit

As a patron of Action on Addiction, since 2012, Kate also delivered a speech to celebrate the work of the charity, while also meeting former clients of Action on Addiction who were cooking the food for last night's dinner.

The Duchess of Cambridge spoke to Royal fans yesterday [11 June] to reveal her favourite United Kingdom staycation spot, where she has had secret holidays with Prince William, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.

Britain's Duchess of Cambridge, who has amped up her work schedule and appearances in recent weeks, was the guest of honour at a gala dinner hosted by Action on Addiction at an event to mark Addiction Awareness Week.

Bennett said the program, which taught her coping mechanisms and new behaviours, helped saved her life, following the death of her father.

She also credited Action on Addiction as "catalyst for my interest in early childhood development".

"Trauma experienced in early childhood, in some cases, as a result of separation, abandonment, abuse, or even emotional neglect, can have a lasting effect".

Kate spoke at the event, describing the charity as "very close" to her heart.

Kate recycled her gorgeous cream Barbara Casasola dress for the occasion.

I'm hugely passionate about the support it provides, especially for parents, children and families who suffer from, or through, addiction.

"Sadly, for many who are suffering with addiction, they just don't receive the help they need early enough. They have already reached crisis point before they find the support they need". "There was never a more important time for Action on Addiction to succeed".

Action on Addiction is the only United Kingdom addictions charity that works across all the areas of research, from treatment to family support and professional education.

It also helps others whose lives are blighted by addiction to gambling and other behaviours.

The charity said Addiction Awareness Week, which runs from June 10-16, aims to raise public awareness about the issues surrounding addiction and to engage with people and families affected.
