Today, Catherine made her first solo trip to Scotland since becoming a royal. Four months after she visited Dundee with Prince William, Kate was back in the country to visit three school-based charity projects in Edinburgh linked to causes close to her heart.
Kate, who goes by the title, the Countess of Strathearn in Scotland made her first stop of the day at St. Catherine's Primary School.
During her visit to the school, Kate met with teachers and students to see how Place2Be's work in Scotland is improving the emotional well-being of pupils, parents, families and school staff.
Kate arrived dressed in a recycled forest green Sportmax coat she had previously worn on Christmas Day while attending church in Sandringham.
The Duchess teamed the long belted coat with a fitting houndstooth skirt by Scottish label, Le Kilt. This is the first occassion Kate has championed this brand which was founded in 2014 by Samantha McCoach. McCoach had a vision of adding modernity to her family's kilt-making heritage which extends over 40 years. This timeless Le Kilt skirt is hand crafted in Scotland, from 100% British wool. The classic pleated A-line skirt features a flat fronted apron fastened with black leather side buckles. It is finished with a traditional Kilt pin.
Kate paired the skirt with a black turtleneck sweater. We have seen the top on a number of occasions and its defining feature is a fine contrast trim along the roll neck and cuff.
The top remains unidentified, but I think it may be the Christopher Kane roll knit lurex trim sweater, or a bespoke version or it. Kate has worn a few Christopher Kane garments in the past, so there's a good chance I'm on the right track with the designer! I've contacted Christopher Kane and waiting to hear back.
Kate accessorized the outfit with her favorite black suede combination of the Mulberry 'Bayswater' clutch and Stuart Weitzman 'Power' Pumps.
She finished the look with her KIKI 'Lauren' Yellow Gold Diamond Pave Leaf Earrings and Cartier Ballon Bleu Watch.
Kate's second engagement of the day saw her visit the Wester Hailes Education Centre, which houses The Art Room's first studio in Scotland.
Kate's final stop of the day was at Craigmount High School, where she took part in a tennis coaching session with Judy Murray, mum of British tennis player Andy Murray.
It's no secret that the Duchess of Cambridge is a huge fan of tennis and has been a public supporter of Andy Murray during the Wimbledon tournament. Judy Murray's Tennis on the Road coaching clinics aim to deliver starter tennis lessons to both adults and children, encouraging them to get active and play the sport.
As anticipated, Kate made a quick wardrobe change for this afternoon's sporting activity. She was dressed casually in a white Nike baseline 3/4 sleeve tennis top and Monreal London Side Panel Track Pants.
On her feet were the ASICS GEL-Solution Speed 3 tennis shoes.
I'll conclude with a look back at some of Kate's past visits to Scotland:
