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'.

Kate Middleton wowed in a £395 L.K.Bennett dress as she and Prince William joined up with Greg James to host a reception for finalists for Radio 1's Teen Heroes.

The couple played host to the ten finalists for Radio 1's Teen Hero awards at Kensington Palace on October 1.

"Their passion and dedication to help others is awesome and they really blew me away".

Teen Heroes are nominated based on the fearless and exceptional achievements of someone aged 12-17 who made a difference in the community, inspired others, overcome difficulties, and more.

In an Instagram post shared online this morning, Kate and William were seen beaming as they met with the teenagers at the event. On 24 November, the three winners Hazel, 12, Rachel, 17, and Scarlett, 14, will be presented with their Teen Hero Award at Radio 1's Teen Awards, which celebrates United Kingdom teenage heroes as well as the year's best music, sport and entertainment stars.

This includes 12-year-old victor Hazel, who lives with a rare genetic disorder called Xeroderma Pigmentosum (XP) that limits the ability of her body to fix damage caused by UV light. Despite this, she cares for her mother, older sister and grandmother, performing house chores, gardening, and walking her grandmother to church on Sunday. Both Scarlett, who has autism, and her mum suffer from an incurable nerve condition called HNPP, which can make everyday activities like carrying shopping bags extremely painful.

The third victor Rachel, 17, has a more political focus, leading campaigns for young Brits about hard issues like knife crime and cyber-bullying, for which she's won a Diana Award, named in honor of William's late mother.
