Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge is set to be the guest of honour at a charity gala dinner thrown by 100 Women in Hedge Funds in aid of Action on Addiction of which she is patron at Kensington Palace, Clarence House has confirmed.
The bash is set to take place on October 24, a day after Prince George of Cambridge's christening, at the State Rooms of Kensington Palace and with Kate and Wills expected to move into their newly renovated Apartment 1A at the royal residence very soon, she won't have far to go.
The Duchess has attended several Action on Addiction events since becoming patron of the charity, which aims to help those and their families overcome their problems, and attended the same event in 2011.
The event sees Kate filling her calendar again after slowly easing herself back into her role as a full time royal following the arrival of her first child Prince George in July this year.
Since his birth the Duchess has only attended a handful of events, including the Tusk Trust Awards in September with husband Prince William. But with her diary filling up it's clear Kate's keen to get back to work.

Next week the Duchess will be taking part in SportsAid workshop at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park for young athletes.
Baby George's christening will take place on October 23rd, at the Chapel Royal, St James' Palace.
Little George was born, to much excitement from the public, on July 22 and it was recently confirmed he'd be christened in a service at the Chapel Royal, St James' Palace at the end of this month conducted by the Archbishop of Canterbury, the Most Reverend Justin Welby as revealed in a statement released by Kensington Palace.
However according to the MailOnline in an effort to keep the service "more personal," they'll only be inviting close friends and family, meaning William's aunts and uncles won't be attending. This reportedly includes Princes Andrew and Edward, Edward's wife Sophie of Wessex and Zara Phillips' mum, Princess Anne.

Great-grandparents the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh will attend, the report claims, as will Prince Charles and Camilla Duchess of Cornwall and Prince Harry, who is favourite to be named godparent.
Kate Middleton's immediate family, parents Michael and Carole and brother and sister Pippa and James, are also expected to attend.
The Palace confirmed to EntertainmentWise that unlike the couple's wedding and other royal ceremonies, such as the diamond jubilee celebrations, the occasion will be kept relatively private.
"The christening will be predominantly a private occasion but there will be parts of it where photos and footage are released," they revealed.
Most previous christenings of royals have taken place in the Music Room at Buckingham Palace. But the choice to buck with tradition has no real meaning, according to the Palace, who claim the location was "simply a case of personal preference".

The full statement from the couple read: "Their Royal Highnesses the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are pleased to announce the christening of Prince George will take place on Wednesday, 23rd October at The Chapel Royal, St James’s Palace.
"Prince George will be christened by The Archbishop of Canterbury, the Most Reverend Justin Welby."
The Chapel Royal at St James' Palace has been in regular use since 1702.
