Princess Kate has been acing the autumn/winter fashion game all week. Today, she went for a more laid-back look, proving she can pull off any style effortlessly.
The 41-year-old Princess of Wales was seen at Sebby's Corner, a baby bank in Barnet, North London. Kate looked stunning in a rich chocolate brown co-ord that would make Friends' Rachel Green quite happy.
She rocked the classic 90s shade in a snug rollneck and matched it with a straight-cut skirt in the same warm hue. Kate added a dash of trendiness with an unexpected choice – a chocolate brown crocodile print belt boasting an oversized square gold buckle.
Stylish Knee-Highs on Point
Kate definitely got the memo about knee-highs being in this season. Prince William's wife chose a suede pair with a block heel to complete her look, balancing both comfort and style.
Dreamy Coat at Sebby's Corner
The Princess of Wales was also spotted outside the baby bank, engaged in conversation in a coat that dreams are made of. Kate's camel-colored coat featured a waist tie, accentuating the Princess' beautiful silhouette.
As expected, Kate styled her hair in her signature waves for a soft, feminine touch. She opted for a natural makeup look with a soft smokey eye.
A Heartfelt Cause
Supporting causes related to early childhood is close to Kate's heart. Her visit to Sebby's Corner marked the launch of an initiative by The Royal Foundation Centre for Early Childhood.
The Royal Foundation Centre for Early Childhood lends support to families with young children in the lead-up to Christmas. Sebby's Corner, operational since January 2021, provides essential items to families in need across London, Barnet, and Hertfordshire.
Kate's Christmas Grotto Initiative
Princess Kate was seen filling up the Christmas grotto with toys for young children to choose from. The Centre for Early Childhood encourages the public to donate funds, products, or pre-loved items and volunteer their time to support local baby banks leading up to Christmas.
She chatted with Bianca Sakol, Founder of Sebby's Corner, and Emma Park, Operations Manager, discussing the crucial work baby banks do nationwide, providing clothing, nappies, toiletries, and baby equipment to families in need.
Spotlight on Sebby's Corner
Amidst a cost-of-living crisis, organizations like Sebby's Corner play a crucial role, a point the royal was eager to emphasize.
“The work happening here is so essential… you are such a lifeline in so many ways, but you're also hidden,” Kate said. “We need to normalize this and make it more visible.”
Kate's ‘Shaping Us' Campaign
Kate has dedicated time to her passion for early childhood development through her ‘Shaping Us' campaign. The campaign aims to “increase public understanding of the crucial importance of the first five years of a child’s life.”
Earlier this month, the mother-of-three delivered a keynote speech on this topic, donning an incredible purple Emilia Wickstead suit. She also turned heads during the South Korean state visit to London, wearing a stunning bright red cape dress with a matching hat, and gracing the state banquet at Buckingham Palace adorned in the historically significant Strathmore Rose tiara.
