The Duchess of Cambridge was the picture of elegance in a stunning blue dress as she gave her first public speech at The Treehouse Hospice in Ipswich.

The dress - from the company's Autumn/Winter 2008 collection - had been debuted by Kate's mother, Carole Middleton, previously at Ascot in 2010.

Kate accessorised the dress with black court shoes, and a wide black belt.
