William and Kate stood in for the Queen as they attended The Royal Variety Performance for the first time. The two made headlines when they met boy-band One Direction, as well as celebrities such as Simon Cowell and Ellie Goulding. Former school-mate and comedian, Jack Whitehall, undertook the traditional teasing of the royals from the stage by joking Kate was, "the one who got away". It was noted that a woman in the receiving line was wearing the same Zarita DVF. Michael and Carole Middleton attended the performance, although not in the Royal Box with their daughter.
