Princess Kate brightens up Bath in the brightest blazer and fitted trousers

The Princess of Wales was a vision in sunshine yellow as she attended a Dame Kelly Holmes Trust event

atherine, Princess of Wales smiles as she visits the Dame Kelly Holmes Trust on May 16, 2023 in Bath, England.

The Princess of Wales made a poignant trip to Bath on Tuesday in light of Mental Health Awareness month, bringing the sunshine in one of the boldest ensembles we've ever seen her wear.  

Princess Catherine, 41, spent time with members of the Dame Kelly Holmes Trust, meeting with young people the charity supports and exploring ways they have learned to better express their emotions, build resilience, and promote positive mental health and wellbeing.

The royal was every inch a Princess as she let her famous brunette tresses fall past her shoulders in tumbling curls, highlighting her ageless glow with a rose-tinted blush, lashings of mascara and a peachy-toned lipstick.


It seems the Princess of Wales took style notes from the late Queen Elizabeth II's wardrobe with her head-turning yellow ensemble. Her Majesty was known for her rainbow wardrobe, with her bold outfits and technicolour tailoring becoming synonymous with her 70-year reign. 

The Queen's daughter-in-law, the Duchess of Edinburgh, once made a rare comment about the Queen's fashion choices during ITV's documentary Our Queen at Ninety. 

"Don't forget that when she turns up somewhere, the crowds are two, three, four, ten, 15 deep, and someone wants to be able to say they saw a bit of the Queen's hat as she went past," Sophie explained. "She needs to stand out for people to be able to say 'I saw the Queen'."

Royal fans certainly wouldn't miss Princess Kate in a crowd if she was wearing her sunshine-yellow ensemble. Inspired by the royal's bold approach to spring dressing? Shop your own mustard-hued outerwear and level up your wardrobe this season.

Double Olympic gold medallist Dame Kelly founded her national youth development organisation on the belief that every young person needs a champion. 

It pairs world-class athletes with youngsters, who may have a lack confidence or other issues, so the sportsmen or women can pass on their winning mindset and help the school children develop the skills and confidence they need to succeed in life.
