She looked a picture of sophistication at the marine-themed roadshow

Her dark, glossy hair was styled effortlessly in tonged curls that tumbled onto her shoulders, and as for make-up, she opted for a subtly smoky eye created with dark brown liner and lashings of mascara. A subtle sweep of coral pink blush balanced her beauty look, while a defined brow pulled everything together beautifully.

STORY: Kate’s most stylish recycled looks

The 1851 Trust roadshows take inspiration from Sir Ben Ainslie’s British America’s Cup challenge to inspire school pupils into STEM subjects (science, technology, engineering and maths). During her visit, the mother-of-two, who is Patron of the marine charity, joined a group of young people taking part in an educational treasure hunt which involved answering questions on technology and science.
