Kate dazzles in green Catherine Walker dress for a luncheon at Stockholm's Royal Palace

By Laura Sutcliffe

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge may have started day one of their four-day royal tour of Sweden and Norway bundled up to keep the chill at bay, but they proved to be savvy quick-change artists as they slipped into sleek ensembles for a luncheon at the Royal Palace of Stockholm. After attending a hockey event at an outdoor ice-skating venue in the centre of the city, the toque-clad couple walked through the streets before attending a lunch engagement with the King and Queen of Sweden

Green and gorgeous! Duchess Kate stuns in the dress

Pregnant Kate looked incredible in a green dress by Catherine Walker, while her husband looked dapper in a navy blue suit. The glowing royal paired her elegant ensemble, which delicately covered her baby bump, with black tights and a pair of black high heels. Kate wore her glossy brunette hair in her trademark loose curls, and opted for natural, neutral makeup to complete her polished look.

For their first engagement of the tour, Prince William and Kate went head-to-head in a hockey penalty shootout, with the Duke pipping Kate to the post, scoring two goals over Kate's one. The pregnant Duchess was actually hockey captain at school and was clearly in her element as she took part in the sporty challenge.

The royals looked incredible in the group shot

The 36-year-old royal looked incredible as always – wowing photographers in a cozy yet super-stylish outfit, including a pom pom toque by Eugenia Kim, a double-breasted black coat by Burberry and a sweater by Swedish bran Fjallraven. She added weather-appropriate boots by Sorel which are priced at $180. Kate kept her accessories to a bare minimum, choosing pretty Asprey London button earrings.
