Kate lends a pop of colour to a winter day in a new red Boden coat

By Sharnaz Shahid

The Duchess of Cambridge brightened up a dull winter day in red coat while visiting Great Ormond Street Hospital on Wednesday (Jan. 17). The new addition to her collection, which isn't likely to remain in stock for long, rings in at $375 and also comes in a navy version. Kate was surely taken by the coat's chic structure with ladylike ruffle embellishments on the collar, sleeves and pockets. The 36-year-old, who is due to give birth to her third child in April, finished off the look with lovely Annoushka Baroque Pearl Drops earrings, nude tights and a simple black clutch bag.

Beauty wise, Kate wore her glossy brunette tresses in glamourous waves, which hung loosely over her shoulders. Her pretty facial features were highlighted with smoky eyewear, a touch of blush and a nude lipstick. She was seen meeting a young child out the renowned hospital, where she officially opened the Mittal Children's Medical Centre, home to the new Premier Inn Clinical Building. Kate joined some of the hospital's patients in the children's play room and met with patients and their families to hear about their experience of the brand new facilities.

Her visit comes one day after she dazzled crowds in Coventry. The pregnant royal braved the cold in in a bright pink coat by Mulberry that skimmed her neat baby bump and made the most of her lean curves. Kate previously wore this coat in March 2015 when she was pregnant with Princess Charlotte. She looked flawless as she greeted the staff, with her brunette locks styled to perfection.
