Camila channelled Belle from Disney's Beauty and The Beast in her pretty yellow dress, which featured a short hemline balanced out with a high neckline.  

The young star paraded her toned pins, boosting her height with a pair of pointed nude platform stilettos. 

The Havana singer wore a face full of makeup and her long brunette tresses styled into effortless waves, with her fringe sweeping over her eyes.

Kate Middleton wowed in a £395 L.K.Bennett dress as she and Prince William joined up with Greg James to host the reception. 

The Duchess of Cambridge donned a 1930s-inspired dress with coral print to meet with inspiring young teenagers at Kensington Palace earlier this month.

The brand has long been a favourite with the Duchess, who is still clearly still loyal to the struggling label, which was bought out of administration in April this year.    

Kate and Prince William were joined by Radio 1 DJs Greg and Clara Amfo for the reception, which was held before the royals set off for their tour of Pakistan

In an Instagram post shared online on Tuesday morning, Kate and William were seen beaming as they met with the teenagers at the event.

Inspired by the 1930s, Kate's brown and black dress featured exaggerated tuck detail at the shoulders, a mini V-neck, body-skimming ruching through the front, long sleeves and a floaty midi-length skirt. 

In photographs of the event, Kate can be seen sharing hands with some of the nominees for the Teen Heroes at the secret reception at Kensington Palace. 

Alongside the images, the caption read: 'Radio 1’s Teen Heroes of 2019 visited The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge at Kensington Palace earlier this month, along with chart-topping superstar Camila Cabello and BBC Radio 1 DJs Clara Amfo and Greg James.'

'Now in its tenth year’s Teen Awards is the biggest teen event in the pop music calendar and shines a light on some of the UK’s most inspirational teens, seeing them crowned Teen Heroes of 2019 in front of an audience of 14-17 year-olds.'

'The ten finalists were greeted by The Duke and Duchess, who praised them for their inspirational work and their dedication to helping others.'

The winners will be honoured at an annual awards ceremony on Sunday at London's SSE Arena, Wembley. 

Stars in the music, entertainment, online and sporting industries will also be honoured at the ceremony.
