The Duchess of Cambridge traded her usual dress for a chic pair of black trousers, a Hobbs top and an $1100 cream coat by Goat as she wowed the crowds at Olympic park on her second public appearance of the week. Kate anchored the look with black high-heeled shoes and topped it off with asimple clutch bag by Mulberry. Stepping out alongside her husband, Prince William, the expectant royal was glowing as the couple visited the Copper Box, in aid of SportsAid, which helps foster the Olympic, Paralympic, Commonwealth and wold championship dreams of British athletes.
The couple have an action-packed day, which started with the royal pair watching a wheelchair basketball session. They then met with the players – some of which who hope to compete in the 2022 Commonwealth Games in Birmingham in which the sport will feature for the first time. Every year SportsAid supports over 1,000 athletes – the vast majority aged 12-18 – by providing a financial award to help with training and competition costs. The charity also helps develop other vital skills for professional athletes, such as media training, nutritional advice and performance lifestyle guidance.
Thursday's appearance comes the day after the mother of Prince George, four, and Princess Charlotte, two,dazzled the crowd in a striking bespoke mint green Jenny Packham coat with matching dress underneath. The coat interested fashion fans due to its on-trend bow neck detail. She also added a pair of nude high heel Jimmy Choo shoes to her chic ensemble.
Duchess Kate was at an event at the Royal Society of Medicine – which was organised by Kate's Royal Foundation. The event brought together academics, researchers and practitioners, and explored issues such as perinatal, maternal and infant mental health, parenting support and advice, and resources for schools and educators.
