What an exciting start to the day! Duchess Kate made a surprise visit on Jan. 29 to the London Early Years Foundation (LEYF) at Stockwell Gardens Nursery and Pre-school for breakfast. She brought some colour with her sophisticated teal coat.
The mom of three was full of smiles as she attended the royal engagement. She wore the long tailored coat open to reveal the detailed lace neckline of her Sézane Tulio Sweater. Kate completed the ensemble with black skinny jeans and black Russell & Bromley ankle boots.
Once inside the nursery and pre-school, Kate removed her teal topper. Royals fans got a better look at the delicate lace panels and frilled neckline on her cream sweater. Her aforementioned skinny jeans and boots provided a modern and sophisticated finish.
The duchess wore her hair parted in the middle in her signature blow-dried waves. She accessorized with golden drop earrings, which were visible beneath her voluminous tresses. She also sported her engagement ring, after removing it for her last royal engagement.
Her visit to the nursery and pre-school continued her child development work. She helped serve the children breakfast alongside staff and partook in play-time activities.
Kate has been very busy over the last few weeks! On Jan. 28, she stepped out to the Evelina London Children's Hospital to help run a National Portrait Gallery workshop. While there, the mom of three taught the children about photography, which is one of her favourite hobbies, and also participated in an arts and crafts session.
For the event, the Duchess of Cambridge opted to re-wear an elegant tweed skirt suit by Dolce & Gabbana. She accessorized with black tights, her favourite black Gianvito Rossi heels and Mappin & Webb earrings.
On Jan. 21, Kate announced the launch of the "5 questions on the under 5s" survey, which gives UK parents the opportunity to sound off on how the next generation should be raised. It is part of her Early Years initiative, and the launch saw the duchess embark on a whirlwind 24-hour tour of the UK, visiting Wales and England. While at the nursery school on Jan. 29, Kate revealed more than 100,000 people have already completed the survey. It runs until Feb. 21, so that's amazing, and it should do lots to help inform her work.
