During her visit, she met staff and young people that worked within the charity. In photographs that appeared on the charity's Twitter page, the royal looked stunning in a blue top, green trousers and boots. Braving the cold, she added a lovely stone-coloured jacket and added a gentle statement pop to her look; carrying a leopard print bag. If you look closely, you can even see her nails, which were painted red. Very festive!

The 56-year-old royal recycled her Prada leather jacket, worn layered over a simple white blouse. She dressed the casual ensemble up with a pair of high-waisted blue Alberta Ferretti trousers. The royal accessorised with her 'Constance Amulette Rose Gold Pendant' by Hermes and wore her blonde hair down in loose waves, keeping her makeup understated and light.

Earlier this year, the mother-of-two spoke openly about her own personal style and that of fellow royal women during a special engagement with the British Fashion Council.

She added of British royal style in general: "Britain is an island – albeit a big island – and if you look at what royal women have worn over generations they have made huge fashion statements reflected from foreign shores, and that's what helps make our style."
