Date night, royals style!

England's favorite couple, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, gussied up for the Royal Variety Performances at the London Palladium on Thursday night. The gala included performances by Ed Sheeran and Ellie Goulding—the latter of whom sang at the royal wedding reception back in 2011.

Catherine wore a lace Diane von Furstenberg gown, which showed off her small baby bump, and her hair was pulled back in a rare but elegant updo. At her side, Prince William looked perfectly dapper in a classic black tux.

Although Middleton has worn several DVF wrap dresses in the past, this is the first time Prince George's mom has opted for a floor-length gown by the American designer.

Recently it was revealed that Kate has found a new stylist in close pal and personal assistant Natasha Archer. And yet, Archer's influence doesn't seem to be dramatically changing Catherine's signature style.

Just yesterday the Duchess stepped out in a belted purple frock by Goat while meeting with Olympic hopefuls in West London. Last month she donned ensembles by her three favorite designers: Alexander McQueen, Jenny Packham and Temperly London. And this latest number seems to be another classic Kate look.

As they say: If it ain't' broke, don't fix it!
