While at the gala Kate made a short speech.  And it was covered by the Daily Mirror in London.

She said in part. “I wanted to say how delighted I am to be here this evening.”   She continued saying, “To celebrate the exceptional work of The National Portrait Gallery.”

“They hold the most extensive collection of portraits in the world.  Their unique exhibitions never fail to inspire.”
