The Duchess of Cambridge has been rocking lots of stylish outfits this week, and the royal made no exception on Friday as she joined a homecoming celebration for Great Britain's US Open champions.

Kate Middleton - who is Patron of the Lawn Tennis Association - wore a sporty mini skirt for the occasion from Poivre Blanc Tennis, which she paired with a navy zip-up jacket by the same brand and white trainers.

The royal wore her hair in a casual ponytail and sported natural-looking makeup, carrying a white tennis racket in one hand as she sat down to chat with the players.

The royal launched the photographic project last year to capture what the United Kingdom looked like during the national lockdowns. An exhibition featuring some of the photos was launched later in the year, before being published in the book, Hold Still: A Portrait of Our Nation in 2020.

Kate looked beautiful in a white belted chiffon dress as she chatted away to guests. She paired the frock with an equally glamourous white tweed military blazer.
