Joined by husband Prince William, Kate was the picture of elegance in her Catherine Walker design, which boasted button-down detailing and 80s inspired epaulettes.

The Duchess completed her chic attire with some apt accessories, paying tribute to her Scottish title by carrying a Strathberry clutch bag designed in Scotland.

We're obsessed with the Duchess of Cambridge's versatile clutch, and the black croc version is a steal at £255 for a timeless piece you'll wear again and again. 

The 39-year-old royal has had another action-packed day in Scotland. She joined Prince William for an engagement with Fields In Trust, an organisation that helps to protect green spaces in Edinburgh, looking lovely in a blazer and trouser combination.

Adding a polka dot cardigan from Jigsaw, Kate cinched her waist with a black leather belt. She was wearing a new Daniella Draper necklace featuring her children's initials, worth £495.

Blue is definitely the Duchess of Cambridge's colour! 

She later attended a Lawn Tennis Association Youth event, wearing a chic £90 Ralph Lauren jumper.

Kate's cable-knit number dates back to 2019, and we couldn't help but notice how similar it was to her late mother-in-law Princess Diana's off-duty look of choice.
