The royal couple Prince William and Kate Middleton pooled their efforts and collected 675,000 pounds for the Child Bereavement Charity after hosting an impressive dinner in London. According to the Daily Star, guests were invited to the 100 Women in Hedge Funds gala at St. James’ Palace.

A guest said “What you are both doing together to alleviate the suffering of children who have lost family members, and bereaved families who have experienced the tragedy of losing a child, is beyond praise.”

The Duke of Cambridge was named a patron of 100WHF last year, and aims to raise funds for numerous charities. The fund has branches around the world, and has raised millions of dollars in support of women’s health, education and mentoring.

Prince William wrote “It is a privilege for me to be Patron of this exciting endeavor.”

Anne Popkin, chairwoman of 100WHF’s global board, flew to London from San Francisco for this month’s gala. She said: “It is wonderful to raise such an amount. The reason we work so well with His Royal Highness is our aims and his aims are the same.”
