The mother-of-two's chic appearance at the event was a contrast to the casual look she wore for another Heads Together event at Kensington Palace on Wednesday. Kate looked relaxed in skinny jeans and a white, red and black striped jumper, which she accessorized with elegant drop earrings and of course, her stunning wedding ring.

Kate held a special reception for runners who will take part in the London Marathon this weekend. The 35-year-old, who will be cheering on participants from the sidelines on race day, welcomed the group to Kensington Palace and spoke to them about the different reasons they are competing in the 26-mile race. She wished them luck with their final preparations before the team took part in a training session with coach Nick Anderson.

The Duchess also praised her brother-in-law for speaking out about his own mental health, saying: "We all felt there was very much a campaign to get everyone talking and have these conversations, (so) we've got to do the same, you know, do the same - so he's been brilliant." When the headteacher added that Harry was a 'real hero to a lot of people,' Kate agreed saying 'absolutely'".
