WATCH: The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge marked the national day of reflection at Westminster Abbey

Looking totally radiant, the 39-year-old wore her hair in a chic, blow-dried style, sported a minimal, glowing makeup look and rocked a fabulous outfit, consisting of a power suit - a neutral double-breasted Reiss blazer, slim fit navy trousers, a Jane Atelier blouse and the cutest white tote bag by Tusting. Fashion goals right there, don't you think?

During the outing, Kate met both military personnel and civilians who were directly involved in the effort, from RAF aircrew and medics, who supported evacuees at Kabul airport, to the civilians and volunteers, who established a Repatriation Centre at RAF Brize Norton providing key supplies and support on their arrival into the UK.


Kate looked stunning in her smart outfit

Yesterday, the brunette beauty was seen doing a spot of shopping, and she looked as gorgeous as ever, wearing one of her most instantly recognisable floral dresses from high street store & Other Stories.

    The stunning £95 number was midi in length with layered ruffled tiers, a drawstring tie waist, and tie-up ruffled bib in a mixed floral graphic print. Kate has worn it many times, most memorably in 2019, when she, Prince William and her children privately visited her 'Back to Nature' garden as part of the Chelsea Flower Show.
