Today, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge participated in ICAP's 23rd annual Charity Day. ICAP is a UK-based brokerage firm and each year it donates a day’s revenue and commissions to a selection of charities. This year, ICAP selected SportsAid and Place2Be, both of which the Duchess is Patron. SkillForce, of which Prince William is Patron, was also chosen to benefit from the funds generated today.
William and Kate first took a tour of the ICAP offices where they met staff and brokers. Under the guidance of the brokers, The Duke and Duchess hit the trading floor and chatted with ICAP clients to 'close' deals over the telephone.
Kate took some time away from the phones to sneak in a game of table tennis with members of her SportsAid patronage.
Today, Kate recycled a teal L.K. Bennett suit she first wore for a visit to Leicester with the Queen and Prince Philip in 2012.
The separates consists of the 'Jude' peplum jacket and 'Davina' asymmetrical sheath dress.
We also saw the return of the Mappin & Webb Empress set:
Kate completed the outfit with her signature black suede Mulberry 'Bayswater' clutch and Stuart Weitzman 'Power' Pumps.
Although Kate's outfit was familiar, she did mix things up with a new hair-do! The style is noticeably shorter and the bouncing curls are gone. What do you think?
