The Princess of Wales made a cool yet casual outing on Tuesday, serving up quite the inspiration for everyday summer dressing. The royal visited the Windsor Family Hub to hear about the important work the organisation carries out to provide support to families across Windsor, Maidenhead and the surrounding areas. Naturally, she looked lovely as ever for the occasion.

The 41-year-old slipped into the sweetest new baby blue gingham blazer by Zara which was layered over a white puff sleeve tank top by Ralph Lauren and some dark wash blue trousers by L.K. Bennett. Swapping her signature stilettos for a more practical design, the royal stepped out in a pair of navy point-toe ballerina flats by Emmy London, tapping into the overriding Balletcore trend of this season.

Princess Kate wore her ever-flowing locks down loose with a subtle side parting and opted for a radiant beauty blend to highlight her natural features. A honied complexion, a rosy pink lip, a bronzed smoky eye, and a dusting of blush culminated in a flawless palette.

In terms of jewellery, the royal wore a matching necklace and earring set by Mappin & Webb that boasted disc-shaped pendants in white gold and diamonds.

The mother-of-three thoughtfully engaged with her hosts at the charity. The Windsor Family Hub is run by Achieving for Children, a not-for-profit community interest company providing children’s services for the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead.

Princess Kate has dedicated her time to raising awareness of the critical importance of early childhood and in January 2023, with The Royal Foundation Centre for Early Childhood, launched Shaping Us, a campaign that aims to transform the issue of early childhood, from one of scientific interest to one of the most strategically important topics of our time.
