It's back to business as usual for Kate Middleton.

After baptizing her little boy Prince George yesterday at Chapel Royal in St. James' Palace, the Duchess of Cambridge returned to her royal duties by attending the 100 Women in Hedge Funds (100WHF) philanthropic initiatives event at the Kensington Palace State Apartments in London.

The evening was held in aid of charity Action on Addiction in association with the 100WHF, both of which Kate is a patron, but the new mom made sure to mention yesterday's special festivities at the beginning of the night.

Middleton, who stunned in a navy, silk tulle Jenny Packham gown, confessed that she was surprised at how well behaved her son was throughout his christening, telling Sky News (courtesy of The Mirror), "He was such a good boy actually. We were very lucky, he's not always like that."

Kate attempted to bring the problem of addiction to the public's attention with a number of public engagements, and also visited The Willows Primary School in Manchester to meet the children of addicts earlier this year.

"Addiction is a hugely complex and destructive disease and its impact can be simply devastating. All too often, lives and families can be shattered by it," she said at the time.

"Research has shown that children of those who are addicted are seven times more likely to have addiction problems themselves. They are also brought up surrounded by fear, instability and chaos."
