Kate goes casual as she visits English Lake District with Prince William

By Zach Harper

Duchess Katebrought sunshine to Trooping the Colour on June 8 when she dazzled in a gorgeous pastel yellow Alexander McQueen dress. And just three days later on Tuesday (June 11), the mom-to-three made yet another sartorial statement – and her look couldn’t be any more different!

Kate joined Prince William on a trip to Cumbria in the English Lake District to speak to farmers and communities there. The stylish royal chose a khaki jacket by Troy London for the event, which she paired with skinny jeans, a simple white shirt, knitted top and her See By Chloe biker boots. Opting for neutral makeup, her low ponytail perfectly showed off her Kiki McDonough“Lauren” earrings.

The duke and duchess began their day in Keswick, where they met with volunteers and first responders, including people from the rescue service and mental health workers.

Mental health is one of the couple’s passions. Kate and William have won awards for their advocacy and what they’ve done to raise awareness, and also formed mental health initiative Heads Together with Prince Harry in 2016. In May, Kate, William, Harry and Duchess Meghan launched Shout, a text messaging service that helps UK citizens experiencing distress or who are in crisis get the help they need.

After meeting with local workers, they walked through a crowd in Keswick, saying hello to royal watchers and well-wishers who’d gathered to see them. After that, the couple headed to a sheep farm to speak about challenges farmers in the area are facing. The couple got right into the local craft, as Kate also helped with a bit of sheep shearing while there!

Kate will be out in support of mental health awareness again on Wednesday when she attends the first annual gala dinner for Action on Addiction, an organization she patronizes. She will also deliver a speech at the event for the charity, which works to engage and help people and families affected by addiction and to raise public awareness of the problem.
