WATCH: Kate Middleton looks radiant for poignant new outing

Kate, 40, looked as stunning as ever as she arrived at the establishment, wearing an Alexander McQueen pink single-breasted blazer with the matching trousers.

The Duchess completed her look with Emmy London's 'Rebecca Pink Makeup Suede Pumps' and accessorised with her striking 'Empress Diamond Carriage Earrings' and matching 'Mini White Gold & Diamond Pendant Necklace' by British jewellers Mappin & Webb.

We loved her hair; it looked as luscious as ever, teased into a cascading loose style. Neutral makeup highlighted and defined her pretty features.

The roundtable discussion that Kate took part in focused on forthcoming research led by the Centre into early childhood development.

The research follows on from Kate's survey on the early years in 2020, titled the '5 Big Questions on the Under Fives', which attracted the largest ever response to a public survey of its kind with over 500,000 responses in one month, sparking a national conversation on the early years.

Mother-of-three Kate launched The Royal Foundation Centre for Early Childhood in June 2021. In February this year, Kate travelled to Denmark to learn about their approach and investment in early childhood development, which is widely regarded as world-leading.

Prince William's wife has had a majorly busy week so far. On Monday she supported the Duchess of Cornwall at the Order of the Garter, where she wore a beautiful blue coat dress and dazzling heels by Aquazzura, and on Tuesday, she attended a memorial service to mark the fifth anniversary of the tragic Grenfell Tower fire.
