Beyonce who?

Kate Middleton had quite a busy Tuesday with Prince William, visiting the 9/11 memorial and then hanging out with the kids at The Door, an educational center in downtown Manhattan, which recently partnered with the City Kids Foundation to provide further support for youth in the city.

The royal pair then attended the Creativity is Great reception, where Middleton arrived in a black Seraphine turtleneck dress ($99), suede Stuart Weitzman pumps and gold necklace. At the gathering, they met British actor Patrick Stewart, film mogul Harvey Weinstein, Marchesa designer Georgina Chapman and J. Crew creative director Jenna Lyons. And based on the below photo, it looks like Middleton had the best time chatting it up with Lyons — so much so that she even touched her, the ultimate sign of a lasting royal friendship. (Sorry, Beyonce.)
