Kate Middleton is supporting one group of successful ladies as they harness their collective girl power for a greater good!

On Thursday, Oct. 24, the Duchess of Cambridge will attend a benefit gala for 100 Women in Hedge Funds, a nonprofit for professionals in the investments industry that raises funds for women's and family health, mentoring and education programs. This particular evening, held in the Kensington Palace State Apartments, will benefit Action on Addiction, a charity working across the addiction field in research, prevention, treatment, professional education and family support.

Prince William became a patron of 100 Women in Hedge Funds' philanthropic initiatives in 2009, and in 2012, Prince Harry and Kate joined him to become patrons for an additional three years. Per Kensington Palace, 100 Women in Hedge Funds will focus its U.K. philanthropic efforts on three charities from The Charities Forum of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry: Action on Addiction in 2013, WellChild in 2014, and The Art Room in 2015.

It's nice to see the people's princess and princes doing what they can to give back!
