Kate Middleton has put her most stylish foot forward in one of her best day to night outfits for her royal duties on Tuesday.
The beautiful Duchess of Cambridge masters the art of mixing high and low, teaming her purple pussy bow blouse by Gucci with a pair of chic wide-leg trousers from chain-store Jigsaw for her first engagement, a visit to the Henry Fawcett Children's Centre in Kennington, South London where she learned, "how Lambeth Early Action Partnership are using the Parent and Infant Relationship Service (PAIRS) to support parents, carers and their children."
The lavender crepe blouse is approx $1453 Australian and is available to buy now on Net-A-Porter here.
Middleton looked completely in her element with a big smile on her face as she took the time to play with some of the children.
The official Kensington Royal Instagram page captured the adorable candid below captioned, "The Duchess of Cambridge visited the Henry Fawcett Children’s Centre to see how the Lambeth Early Action Partnership (LEAP) are using the Parent and Infant Relationship Service (PAIRS) to support parents, carers and their children.
At the Centre The Duchess joined parents and their children for ‘Together Time’, which provides space for parents to enjoy being with their babies or toddlers and includes singing, use of child led play and interaction. The session is designed to support parents’ ability to understand their child’s cues, feel more confident in their parenting and strengthen their relationship with their child."
The brunette beauty then changed her soft, sophisticated silhouettes for a more playful evening look as she attended the 2019 Portrait Gala held at the National Portrait Gallery in London
The 37-year-old opted for a whimsical floral floor-length dress by Alexander McQueen, which she has actually worn to another notable event, the 2017 The British Academy of Film and Television Arts. As People notes, "Kate, who is a patron of the National Portrait Gallery, wore her black floral Alexander McQueen tiered gown from the 2017 BAFTAs — only she had capped sleeves added to the off-the-shoulder dress this time around.
She also changed up her red carpet look from two years ago by styling her hair down in her signature blowout."
In keeping with Royal tradition as well as Kate's refined style, the gown still had feminine and polished touches such as the black ribbon detail, however, this time styled with less regality as Kate let her hair down in big loose curls and was more modestly accessorised with just a black clutch rather than the standout jewels and a formal up-do at the 2017 BAFTAs.
According to People.com, "The mom of three, 37, previously attended the gala in 2014 and 2017. This year, the Portrait Gala will support Inspiring People: Transforming our National Portrait Gallery, a project for the complete renewal of the Gallery that will see a significant refurbishment of the building.
Inspiring People will also include nationwide outreach, including a school program for teaching history and art – subjects Kate, who studied art history at the University of St. Andrews, where she met and fell in love with Prince William – holds personal interest in.
Also on the night’s guest list were Victoria and David Beckham, Princess Beatrice and Kate Moss."
