Harry isn't the only royal family member with a soft spot for a good cause: Prince William's bride-to-be, Kate Middleton, made her first post-engagement appearance at a carol service for the Henry Van Straubenzee Memorial Fund on December 1.

"Kate was very respectful of the service and didn't speak to people during," an onlooker at St. Lukes Church in Chelsea, London, told UsMagazine.com. "She was effervescent, happy and, of course, in everyone's gaze. But she handled it very well."
