The Princess of Wales has wasted no time in returning to royal duties after the summer break, with Monday seeing the royal visit Royal Naval Air Station (RNAS) Yeovilton, one of the Royal Navy's two principal air stations, and one of the busiest military airfields in the UK.

Much to the disappointment of royal fans, Princess Kate, 41, has not joined her husband Prince William, 41, in New York this week to celebrate the 2023 Earthshot Prize finalists. According to The Telegraph, the Princess of Wales doesn't plan to join her husband for the Earthshot Awards in Singapore in November either, which is typically one of her most glamorous red carpet appearances in the royal calendar.

While Monday's engagement didn't call for the royal to be red-carpet-ready, Princess Kate looked immaculate nevertheless in her newly-appointed role as Commodore-in-Chief, Fleet Air Arm.

The mother-of-three looked effortlessly chic in a smart, double breasted navy blazer and matching cigarette trousers. The royal layered her slick power suit over a cream ribbed top, slipping into blocky navy heels to complete her ensemble.

Kate's business-inspired suit getup may be a depature from her bright and bold summer dresses this season, but the royal never fails to impress with her unrivalled archive of power suits and slick tailored jackets. 

Just last week, Princess Kate was a vision in a tailored Alexander McQueen ensemble that showed off her sartorial flair. At an engagement in HMP Highdown, Surrey, the royal wore a slick tailored trouser suit in a rich aubergine hue.
