This event, which according to the Guardian Newspaper was attended by the "fastest-rising stars of the UK tech industry" gave technology leaders a chance to network with one another, and also meet members of the royal family including the Duke of York and Duke of Cambridge as well as the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh. Kate commented,

It was a real honour to be invited and an excellent opportunity to meet with innovators from many UK companies within the opulant surroundings of the state rooms of Buckingham Palace. I spoke to Prince William, the Duke of Cambridge, who was especially interested in talking to the attendees and hearing about what they are doing.
