While Kate Middleton usually reserves her most elegant and glamorous looks for her many royal engagements, the Duchess of Cambridge’s most recent trip to London’s Natural History Museum saw the royal arrive a little more casually.
The Duchess offered up an effortless lesson in high-low dressing, pairing a blush Chloé blazer with & Other Stories jeans, a white T-shirt, and Veja sneakers. As usual, the mum-of-three left her brunette locks down in light curls and accessorised with layered gold necklaces.
Kate’s appearance follows her announcement that she will be opening the Royal Foundation Centre for Early Childhood. “Ultimately, what shapes our childhood not only shapes us as adults, but also the society we want to form,” she and husband Prince William wrote to their Instagram. “Change really needs to happen, and the time for action is now. In establishing The Royal Foundation Centre for Early Childhood, our mission is to drive awareness of, and action on, the transformative impact of the early years. It was great to speak with both experts and families alike at the London School of Economics and at Kensington Palace Café about this today. We will help to make change through fresh research to identify opportunities, collaborations to scale solutions and creative campaigns to bring this issue to life.”

The royal’s most recent engagement also follows the family’s Father’s Day celebrations in the U.K., where the couple shared never-before-seen photos of Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis. “Wishing fathers everywhere a happy Father’s Day,” the pair wrote, paying tribute to William, Prince Charles, Kate’s father Michael Middleton, and William’s late grandfather Prince Philip.
The Duke of Cambridge, who also celebrated his 39th birthday, took his two eldest children to a royal engagement over the weekend, attending a half marathon at the Queen’s Sandringham estate in Norfolk.
