The Duke of Cambridge arrived at the October Club tonight for St. Giles Trust‘s 50th anniversary. Though he was without his wife, Prince William seemed delighted to speak to the many guests at the charity dinner, and was treated to a special cake in honor of the royal wedding.
The prince leaned down to inspect the baked good, a replica of the borrowed Aston Martin he and Catherine drove out of Buckingham Palace in following their afternoon wedding reception. Everything from the balloons attached to the convertible to the L (for “Learner’s Permit”) on the front bumper was recreated for William to admire.
St. Giles Trust’s mission is to break the cycle of offending, crime and disadvantage and create safer communities. The organization works to help those who leave prison to become trained professionals in order to help those like them change their lives.
The October club selects a charity to raise money for each year, and this year St. Giles Trust benefits from the generosity of city workers. The Duke of Cambridge became a 50th Anniversary Year patron back in January.
