When it came to accessories, Middleton carried a Tusting mini taupe bag and Simone Rocha faux pearl curb-chain earrings. As usual, we also got a good glimpse of her 12-carat oval sapphire engagement ring, which stood out against her otherwise neutral palette.

The royal was visiting the university as part of her public engagements to raise awareness for mental health. At Nottingham Trent University and the University of Nottingham, Middleton learnt about how the students were receiving support, and spoke to the students about her own university experience, encouraging them to try new activities in fields of art, music and sport.

While the royal always looks effortlessly put together, this outfit is a slight shift from her regular power-suit style trousers and blazers. However, the softer style certainly suits the princess, who very nailed the quiet luxury look. Quiet luxury, a trend that focuses on well-tailored items, neutral colours and unbranded clothing, has grown in popularity thanks to both the fashion on Succession, and popular influencers like Sofia Richie, who have brought the aesthetic to a younger demographic.

Kate of course, looks completely natural in the popular style, giving us no question about who we’re going to turn for for quiet luxury inspiration in the future.
