Today, the Duchess of Cambridge traveled to the seaside town of Margate to tour the Turner Contemporary gallery and view the 'Self: Image and Identity' exhibition. The exhibition includes the last self-portrait by Sir Anthony Van Dyck, recently acquired by the National Portrait Gallery of which the Duchess is Patron.
The Duchess also met artists whose works are in the exhibition and she saw first-hand how the Turner Contemporary engages with the local community in the Clore Learning Studio, where she met local school children involved in an art project.
Now down to the business of what Kate wore. On Monday, we saw the Duchess repeat the pink Alexander McQueen coat which she wore during her first pregnancy, so it came as no surprise when Kate appeared in Margate wearing the Hobbs 'Dalmatian' print mac coat.
She first wore the coat for the Princess Cruise ship naming in June 2013. Notably it was her last solo engagement before the birth of Prince George.
As she did in 2013, Kate kept her accessories simple to offset the busy print. She wore her black suede Stuart Weitzman 'Power' pumps and Mulberry 'Bayswater' suede clutch.
Kate wore her hair in a pretty ponytail and finished the outfit with her classic Annoushka pearl drop and Kiki diamond hoop earrings.
Following her visit to the Turner Contemporary, the Duchess of Cambridge travelled several blocks to the Resort Studios in Cliftonville. She viewed an exhibition featuring photomontages of local personalities and met artists in residence to hear about their work with communities within Cliftonville. Kate also toured the studios, including a print studio, project space and more general workspaces.
Don't forget to tune in tomorrow for Kate's visit to the set of Downton Abbey!
