The royal couple's first stop was to formally open the Balfour Hospital in Kirkwall. It opened its doors in 2019 and replaced the old hospital, which had served the community for ninety years. The new facility has enabled the repatriation of many NHS services from the Scottish mainland, allowing Orkney’s population to receive most of their healthcare at home.

The mother-of-three's outfit was just gorgeous. She decided to wear royal blue from head to toe; a past-season blue Zara blazer with a stunning blue pleated skirt by Hope, with nude heels and a nude bag. The getup caught our attention as it was nearly identical to an outfit that her late mother-in-law Princess Diana wore in 1992. Diana was seen out and about also wearing a pleated blue skirt and a similar, long-line blazer. Uncanny!
