Kate Middleton lightened up a dreary, bleak London day in a gray Matthew Williamson number on Wednesday. The style-setting royal wore the piece to the UK premiere of "African Cats" alongside her hubby.

Green and yellow jewels embellishing her neckline and sleeves cheerfully popped out on what would have been an otherwise-bland outfit choice. She paired the piece with slate-gray pumps and a matching clutch.

Middleton was also accompanied by an unusually-deep tan and of course, a dapper Prince William, who shielded his wife from the rain.

Ah, fairy tales.
