What a vision in green! Duchess Kate and Prince William were all smiles as they stepped out to their first engagement of 2020 in Bradford on Jan. 15, and the Duchess of Cambridge absolutely captivated the crowds with her elegant ensemble.

Kate looked chic and warm in a hunter green Alexander McQueen coat. The British designer label is one of the style maven's favourites. The military-style piece was tailored to perfection for her with its defined waist, gentle flare and longline shape.

The duchess played up the rich green colour of the jacket with earrings by Zeen. She previously wore the green drop earrings on her royal tour of Pakistan with William last year. The mom-of-three completed her look with a black Aspinal of London top handle bag and black Gianvito Rossi pumps. Both are also go-to labels for the duchess!

Kate also donned a Zara plaid dress underneath her coat, but royals fans waiting for her on the streets only got to see a smidgen of the frock when she walked!

She later removed her coat to take a tour of the kitchen at British-Asian MyLahore's flagship restaurant to learn about some of their community work. And she got to make lassi!

The sophisticated dress features a pussy bow neckline and below-the-knee silhouette. The defined waist and neutral plaid finished the look in high style.

As per usual, Kate's hair was elegantly styled. Her brunette locks were parted down the centre and blow-dried in a bouncy style. She tucked her strands behind her ears to better showcase the Zeen earrings.
