Speaking with six staff members from Fraser Health's Surrey Memorial Hospital in British Columbia to mark Canada Day, the Duchess sweetly chose a red outfit for the call, keeping with her tradition of often wearing the country's national colour for her Canadian engagements.

The royal appeared to be wearing a chic red tweed dress, which many believe to be another item from her incredible Alexander McQueen collection. It could be the designer's 'Short-Sleeve Tweed Shift Dress' which is sadly no longer available to shop – though it would make gorgeous summer choice for Kate.
