The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge attended the U.K. premiere of “African Cats” in London on Wednesday.

Kate Middleton, wore a striking gray peplum knee-length dress by designer Matthew Williamson that features an Egyptian style mainly turquoise gem and gold bead detailing along the neckline and elbow-length sleeves.

Husband Prince William, looked dapper in his usual choice of a navy suit for a formal event, teamed with a crisp white shirt and deep red tie.

The African Cats viewing at BFI also served as a charity fundraiser for the conservation group Tusk Trust, which Prince William is also the patron of. William also gave a speech at the podium about the Tusk Trust and its charity functions.

Tusk Trust has 40 projects in 17 African countries that aim to protect wildlife, alleviate poverty and encourage education in rural communities. Prince William has been the charity’s Royal Patron since 2005.

Directed by Keith Scholey (“Big Cat Diary”) and Alastair Fothergill (“Earth” and “Deep Blue”) and narrated by British actor Sir Patrick Stewart, African Cats is filmed in Kenya’s Masai Mara region from August 2008 to October 2010, following a pride of lions and a family of cheetahs in the savanna.
