The Duchess of Cambridge championed British fashion in an outfit from Eponine as she stepped out for an official engagement in London on Thursday. Kate looked chic in a pink tweed top and skirt as she visited charity Best Beginnings to launch their series of educational films about maternal mental health.

The mum-of-two styled the tweed top and matching skirt with a gold L.K Bennett clutch bag and nude court shoes, wearing her hair down in her signature glossy blow dry. Kate previously wore the ensemble in March 2016, and caused the website of the British label to crash as fans visited in an attempt to recreate the Duchess' look.

As part of the Heads Together campaign, which she leads with The Duke of Cambridge and Prince Harry, the royal watched one of the Best Beginnings films before speaking to a couple who shared their experience with post-natal depression. Duchess Kate also spoke to mums and dads about how becoming a parent affected their mental health.

Although Duchess Kate has a full-time live-in nanny, the mother-of-two has been open about the difficulties of parenting. Earlier this year, the royal empathised with parents who have struggled when she went to the Anna Freud Centre's Early Years Parenting Unit in north London. "Parenting is tough," she said. "And with the history and all the things and the experiences you've all witnessed, to do that on top of your own anxieties, and the lack of support you also received as mothers... I find it extraordinary how you've managed actually. So really well done."

Prince George and Princess Charlotte's mum learnt about how the centre supports families who have children under five years old. Her visit marked her continued desire to draw attention to child mental health issues and the importance of early intervention.
