WATCH: Kate Middleton is asked if she is a 'Prince' and handles it perfectly

Despite the drizzly British weather, Kate still managed to look radiant as usual – leaving us desperate to recreate her enviable style.

Stunning in a pair of tight-fitting skinny jeans paired with her Seeland Woodcock Advanced Jacket, the Duchess remained elegant despite swapping her usual dress and heels for jeans and brown boots.

Kate was evidently beaming beneath her floral face covering

In true regal style, the royal wore an elegant pie crust blouse beneath her jacket – channelling Princess Diana who was a true fan of the statement collar.

Kate wore her hair in a half-up, half-down style and kept her makeup natural, sporting a black eyeliner and a delicate floral face mask to complete her look.

The Duchess, who continues to advocate strongly for NHS staff, accessorized the elegant look with Flora Drop Earrings from Hamilton & Inches and looked absolutely stunning for the engagement.

It's not the first time the Duchess has sported the elegant drop earrings. On Monday, both Kate and William appeared at a leading social care charity, where they met with workers to hear about the vital support that they provide to those with complex needs, including addiction and mental health challenges, where Kate was first seen wearing the pair.

The 'Kate-effect' is in full swing as usual, meaning her statement earrings have since sold out and are only available on a waitlist. Luckily, we think these elegant drop earrings are right up the Duchess's street.
