The Duchess of Cambridge was guest of honour at the Fostering Network's Excellence Awards held at BMA House in London on Tuesday evening (17 November).
She met with children and young people, foster carers, social work and care leaders, before presenting the Fostering Achievement Award to three young people in recognition of their extradording achievements within the fostering network this year.
Kate was also presented with quilts for her son Prince George and her daughter Princess Charlotte.
Kevin Williams, chief executive of The Fostering Network, said previously: "Amongst the many awards that will be celebrated at the event, The Duchess will be presenting an award to three young people who have shown how far determination, a good attitude, and proper support and stability can get you. Sadly not every young person has a positive start in life, but The Fostering Network, foster carers and all those involved in working with fostered young people throughout the UK will continue to strive to make life better for them."
Holly Willoughby hosted the awards.
"I am delighted to be hosting The Fostering Network's Fostering Excellence Awards. It's been incredibly humbling to be meeting so many amazing foster carers, their families, and care experienced young people who have achieved so much despite the enormous obstacles that have been in their way," said Holly.
"From new born babies to young people who are taking their first steps into adulthood, foster carers are there every single day for children of all ages and who come from all walks of life. Being in foster care can provide stability and security for children when they need it most, so they can grow as part of a family while still being supported by the whole community of people who dedicate their lives to working with fostered children."
