From looking good to doing good, Princess Kate stepped off the red carpet of last night s glittering world premiere of the new Bond film Spectre and dived right back into the cause she’s been passionately championing.

Wearing a knee-length gray Orla Kiely dress with pleats and a ponytail, Kate, 33, received an introduction to a mentoring program that helps vulnerable children in north London on Tuesday morning.

And the royal recycler strikes again! Kate originally wore the chic fitted dress with her hair in loose curls in March 2012.

After an evening of glamour with Hollywood’s biggest stars – and her own leading man, husband Prince William – Kate saw first-hand how the organization, Chance UK, helps children aged five to 11 who are at risk of developing anti-social or criminal behavior.

The charity uses intensive mentoring and family support to help build children s self-esteem and foster a greater sense of self-worth.

At the meeting inside Islington Town Hall in London, Kate gained an overview of the charity s work by meeting with children, parents and mentors.

A spokesman at her office at Kensington Palace says the afternoon visit reflected Kate’s “particular interest in early intervention programs, which provide specialist support to children and families at the earliest opportunity to prevent the development of more serious problems in the future.”

The mother of two has been praised for consistently raising the question of stigma and openly talking about the issue of children s mental health. And at the heart of her work is striving towards meeting the needs of children as early as possible.

Last week, she and William traveled to Dundee, Scotland, to participate in an anti-bullying workshop with a group of students from SeeMe, Scotland s anti-stigma program to tackle mental illness.

Kate will be back in an evening gown later tonight when she attends the annual fundraiser gala run by the philanthropy 100 Women in Hedge Funds, which is donating the proceeds from the night to The Art Room charity, of which Kate is a royal patron.
