Kate Middleton has managed to look stunning despite being caught in a downpour on the way to the screening of a new film.

The Duchess of Cambridge was attending the screening of the film African Cats with her husband Prince William, but was forced to make her way up the red carpet under an umbrella to keep off the rain.

Luckily, her husband was on hand to hold the umbrella for her so everyone could get a sight of her stunning Matthew Williamson outfit.

The Duchess wore a light blue creation from the brand’s most recent collection, which featured ornate green and gold beading details on the collar and the elbows of the three-quarter sleeved dress.

With so much beading detail on the outfit, she chose to keep her accessories minimal, adding just a pair of sparking diamond earrings and her famous sapphire and diamond engagement ring.

The film screening was held to raise money for the Tusk Trust, a charity which the Duke of Cambridge is a patron.
