Kate Middleton dazzles as Omid Scobie race row book engulfs Royal family

Kate Middleton and Prince William put on a brave face in the wake of controversy surrounding an allegation made against high profile members of the Royal Family, as they attended the Royal Variety Performance.

The Royal Family have been dragged into a royal race row after two members were named for allegedly speculating over the skin colour of Harry and Meghan's son Archie before he was born in May 2019.

They were named in a Dutch version of author Omid Scobie's book Endgame and Piers Morgan added fuel to the fire when he chose to name the royals on British TV. When the Sussexes made their explosive allegations on Oprah, in an interview broadcast around the world, they set in train a public debate about who in the royal family might harbour such racially charged views. In a multicultural modern Britain such allegations against the monarchy generated debate on a matter of such public importance with Scobie's new book claiming to add to that public debate.

But despite the turbulent week for the royal family, 41-year-old Kate wowed in a stunning Safiyaa gown as she stepped out in Kensington for the high-profile event alongside her husband and guests, Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel of Sweden.

That followed their official meeting earlier this morning. This morning's appearance at Windsor Castle saw Kate and William take on their first public outing after the release of Endgame.

And despite the awkward situation, one photo shows the Princess laughing while mingling on the red carpet while her husband stood by her side this evening.

The Prince of Wales wore a classic suit with a bow tie and white shirt.

The event at the Royal Albert Hall will feature performances from Rick Astley, Zara Larsson and music icon Cher.

King Charles III is not scheduled to attend the event this evening. The King, 75, issued a short response when asked how he was doing while in Dubai to meet world leaders at the COP28 environment conference.

He said: "I’m all right very much, just about. Having had a rather ancient birthday recently, recovering from the shock of that."
