Duchess Kate looked stylish during her most recent royal appearance, which was made to check out some important research work! As Hello! shares, Kate was spotted wearing a dress made by one of her favourite designers on Wednesday, when she paid a visit to the Institute of Reproductive and Development Biology at Imperial College London.
Kate supports small businesses through fashion choices
Duchess Kate stunned in a bright blue long-sleeved Emilia Wickstead dress, which she paired with a floral-patterned face mask. She also wore a belt and navy pumps to match her ensemble and some uniquely shaped gold earrings! As Hello! mentions, Kate's mask was made by Amaia Kids, while the earrings came from Spells of Love— both fashion choices showing her support of small businesses in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic!
Kate's visit to the Institute of Reproductive and Development Biology came at a special time, since this week is also Baby Loss Awareness Week. Hello! shares that during Kate's time at the research centre, she learned what the centre has done in partnership with charity Tommy's to help decrease rates of miscarriages and babies being born too early. She also became informed about the role coronavirus has played when it comes to pregnancies and babies being born, thanks to the centre's research on the topic!
Kate wore Emilia Wickstead for previous royal engagement
Duchess Kate's visit to the London research centre also saw her donning a white lab coat as she toured the facilities and spoke to researchers! It's not the first time she's been seen looking gorgeous in blue recently either. That's because earlier this month, Kate and William met with Ukranian president Volodymyr Zelensky and his wife at Buckingham Palace, where Kate wore another blue Emilia Wickstead dress!
The Duchess of Cambridge also made a surprise visit to a university in the English Midlands last week, where she learned more about the impact that coronavirus pandemic has on mental health. See more photos of Duchess Kate visiting the Institute of Reproductive and Developmental Biology here!
