We last saw Prince William's wife last week, when she and her husband headed to Northern Ireland. The royal pair spent the day meeting nursing students at Ulster University’s Magee Campus and heard how their studies have progressed since they last spoke on Zoom during the national lockdown. It was Their Royal Highnesses’ first time in this area of Northern Ireland.

Kate looked incredible in her Zara dress

Kate stole the show in a bold, beautiful purple suit by one of her favourite designers, Emilia Wickstead. She teamed the statement getup with a roll-neck jumper and carried her 'Kate' navy quilted shoulder bag from Jaeger, a stylish and classic quilted leather bag, which featured a gold metal chain strap, and elegant gold detailing.

After arriving, she changed quickly out of her suit, into a more sportier outfit. Kate rocked an all-black ensemble to meet with players, coaches and volunteers involved in the 'Sport Uniting Communities' initiative. We loved her chic Lululemon jacket and black trousers.

Casual, sporty, glam, Kate can work it all!
