Kate returned to official duties today to mark World Mental Health Day with William and Harry at a Buckingham Palace reception recognizing the important work of mental health workers across the United Kingdom.
This evening's appearance is the first time the Duchess has been seen publicly since the announcement of her third pregnancy in early September. She has been recovery from Hyperemesis gravidarum - a severe type of morning sickness.
The Duchess opted for the new dress in a ladylike style by one of her go-to labels, Temperley London.
The iris blue Eclipse Lace Collar Dress (£795) is made from corded lace and has black velvet trims and a pleated skirt spliced with cotton-voile panels. It is finished with scalloped edges, frilled sleeves and neckline, and a contrast velvet neck tie. The piece is from Temperley's Fall '17 collection; inspired by the season's Elizabethan influence. The dress is available at Temperley London and Net-A-Porter.
The 'Eclipse' dress is also available in black and in white at Farfetch.
Kate highlighted the black accents on the dress with her favorite black suede accessories. She carried her Mulberry 'Bayswater' clutch and on her feet were the Gianvito Rossi 'Gianvito 105' pumps.
Kate complemented the look with her KIKI Blue Topaz and Diamond Drop Earrings.
It's wonderful to see Kate back on the royal scene. I hope her condition continues to improve and we see more of the Duchess and her growing bump in the coming months :)
