The Prince and Princess of Wales once again enchanted royal fans as they made an unexpected appearance in Windsor on Sunday following King Charles' coronation at Westminster Abbey. The couple made a surprise appearance to greet coronation concert-goers on The Long Walk.

Princess Catherine, 41, carved an exquisite silhouette in a powder blue blazer from Reiss, teamed with a relaxed white T-shirt and fitted black trousers to surprise royal fans ahead of the Coronation Big Lunch event. Take a look at the moment she surprised fans in the clip below...

Keeping it casual after her spellbinding appearance in a custom Alexander McQueen gown and Aquazzura heels yesterday, the royal opted for her trusty VEJA 'Esplar' metallic trainers with her springlike ensemble. 

The Princess let her chocolate tresses fall past her shoulders in tumbling curls, while she opted for her usual glowy makeup look consisting of a peachy blush, fluffy defined brows and honey-hued bronzer.
