On Wednesday morning, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were back on royal duty, where they visited the Foundling Museum, Brunswick Square, London. Looking in great spirits as they arrived, the pair were at the establishment to learn more about the care sector and meet representatives from across the system, including those with direct experience of living in care.

Kate, who turned 40 earlier this month, looked incredible in her new outfit, which consisted of an dark ensemble; navy trousers, a navy roll-neck jumper and heels, and she finished with a dazzling teal coat she's worn before. She also sported some lovely gold earrings, which cost just £2.10 from Accessorize!

 The stunning mother-of-three also looked to have had a hair makeover! At Christmas, when we last saw the royal, her mane was longer, and lighter. At the museum, it looked darker, richer, and a little shorter. We also noticed the royal was sporting dark eyeliner, too, which highlighted her pretty eyes. Just gorgeous. William looked as sharp as ever in his suit jacket.
