Princess Beatrice joined her cousin, Prince William, on Wednesday night at the Centrepoint 50th Anniversary Gala. The 29-year-old showed William her support and was all smiles as she arrived at the event in Camden. Donning a smart black jacket, beaded headpiece, tights and a beautiful pair of boots, Beatrice looked fabulous despite the cold, drizzly weather. 

 

WATCH: Prince William pays emotional visit to Centrepoint charity

Centrepoint is a charity that is close to Prince William's heart. Having become a patron in 2005, the royal opened Apprenticeship House on Wednesday morning, which will support young displaced people in their journey towards independent living. The Duke has a history of showing his commitment to helping get people off the street, and strives to raise awareness of London's problem with homelessness.

Princess Beatrice supported Prince William on Wednesday night 

Before opening the new building, William visited the house and chatted away to residents. A passion instilled in him by his mother, Princess Diana, who took William and brother Harry to meet homeless people in South London on one occasion, so that they could better understand the poverty that others experience. The cause stayed close to William's heart, and he inherited his patronship in 2005.
