REVEALED: Kate Middleton's fun day out with Prince George and Princess Charlotte at the Houghton Horse Trials

The Duchess enjoys a day out with her children

Laura Sutcliffe,

The Duchess of Cambridge enjoyed a fun-filled day out with two of her three children – Prince George and Princess Charlotte on Sunday afternoon. The 36-year-old royal took a trip to Norfolk to visit the Houghton Horse Trials - which is held in the grounds of Houghton Hall in Norfolk every year – and looked incredible in a baby blue dress which is from high street store Zara! The Flocked Print Dress nails many trends in one hit – not only is it designed in a pastel tone, but it has an elasticated neckline, which allows it to be worn off-the-shoulder in a trendy bardot style. Navy blue embroidered detail featured on the sleeves and throughout the centre of the dress which gave it a summery feel and a waist-cinching, sash-style belt was tied around her torso. The dress retails at a purse-friendly £39.99 and is selling out fast, so catch it while you can.

The Duchess enjoyed the day with her two children who were very well-behaved as they took in the surroundings. George wore a green polo top and cream shorts with plimsolls and Charlotte looked adorable in a little pink floral dress as she munched on an ice cream.

According to blog From Berkshire to Buckingham, George looked particularly taken with a Dalmatian dog as they stopped for a bite to eat. In photographs which appeared on Twitter, the trio looked to be having a fabulous day out as they blended in with other spectators. This is the second time they have attended the event – the Cambridge's took their children last year too.

Kate has long been a big fan of horses which she appears to have passed down to her eldest son George, four, as it has been revealed he has taken up horse-riding.The future King, who will turn five in July, has been having riding lessons in Windsor on a Shetland pony which actually belongs to his father Prince William’s cousin Zara Tindall.

A source exclusively told HELLO!: "William and Kate were really keen to get George riding – it's something all the royals do and the whole family adore animals. But obviously he's only small so they didn't want to put him on a big horse. They asked Zara if they could use one of her Shetland ponies and he's been learning to ride on one of those."
