Kate follows up her guest editor stint with some shopping in Chelsea

The Duchess of Cambridge traded her elegant evening gowns and business-chic engagement ensembles for a more laid-back look on Wednesday (Feb. 17). Following a busy day at the office, the royal engaged in a little retail therapy in London.

Earlier that day, Kate acted as a guest editor to the Huffington Post UK, where she wore a white Reiss blouse with a black-and-white Dolce & Gabbana skirt before making a quick change into black yoga trousers, a black coat and scarf and red running shoes to hit the shops on the King’s Road in Chelsea.

Kate hit the shops after her day working as a guest editor on the Huffington Post UK.

Prince George’s mom was seen entering popular athletic-wear shop Lululemon during her trip and emerging with several shopping bags. The Canadian brand has become a hit with celebrities like Michelle Obama and Rosie Hungtington-Whiteley, who have been spotted wearing their clothing.

Perhaps Kate was picking up some athletic gear to wear on her upcoming trip to Scotland, where she will takepart in a tennis workshop alongside Judy Murray. The royal will stop off at Craigmount High School on her way up to Edinburgh to take part in a Tennis On The Road coaching clinic.

Judy's foundation Tennis on the Road aims to deliver starter tennis to both adults and children, encouraging them to get active and play the sport.

During her visit to Edinburgh Kate will visit two of her patronages, Place2Be and The Art Room.

Following her sporting activity, Kate will then continue onto Scotland’s capital city to visit two of her patronages – Place2Be and The Art Room.

Kate will visit St Catherine's Primary School to see how Place2Be's work in Scotland is improving the emotional wellbeing of pupils, parents, families and school staff. She will then visit the Wester Hailes Education Centre, which houses The Art Room's first studio in Scotland.
