The Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton received a pair of gold tap shoes during the opening night of the musical "42nd Street" in London.

Kate Middleton wowed the attendees with her Marchesa gown matched with a jeweled belt, clutch bag, and maroon heels.

The Duchess of Cambridge was seen attending the West End Theatre for the Broadway hit revival and to witness Sheena Easton's performance at Theatre Royal Drury Lane, as Mirror reported.

Kate Middleton attended the event because of her position as the Royal Patron of East Anglia's Children's Hospices or "EACH." She has attended several official engagements over the years. 

The 1982-88 Grammy award-winning singer, stage and screen actress, Sheena Easton, was helping to raise money for the charity for the payment of building the new hospice in Norfolk called "The Nook," according to the Daily Mail.

Before the start of the event, the Duchess of Cambridge was entertained and greeted by Lord Michael Grade, the show's co-producer with the Theatre director and author Mark Bramble.

Kate Middleton came to the event with her hair loose, wearing Spade earrings. Meanwhile, Dr Johnny Hon, executive producer, said that they are pleased to support "The Nook" request on the opening night of "42nd street" in London and honored to join the charity event with the Duchess of Cambridge.

The 35-year-old Duchess of Cambridge met the 12-year-old Ollie Duell, who was on a wheelchair, assisted by EACH, while she was on the red carpet. Ollie Duell had undergone a complex medical condition that influences his bowel movement as well as his stomach.

The show featured some classical songs such as "We're in the Money" song by The Gold Diggers, The Flamingos song "I Only Have Eyes For You," "Lullaby of Broadway" and "Keep Young And Beautiful" by Abe Lyman.
