The Duchess of Cambridge unexpectedly joined Prince William and Prince Harry at London Stadium today for the Coach Core apprentice graduation ceremony.
Kate, who is still suffering from morning sickness, was not previously announced to be attending but it appears the Duchess was well enough to step out for her second engagement of the week.
The royal trio founded Coach Core in 2012 to help young people become sports coaches. The apprenticeship scheme takes young people aged 16-24, who are not in education or employment, and trains them to be sports coaches and positive role models and mentors in their communities.
Kate sported a new yet familiar look for today's outing. She debuted the blue version of the red Philosophy di Lorenzo Serafini blazer she wore on Valentine's Day for an engagement with RAF Cadets. The Duchess is well known for her déjà vu pieces and often purchases clothing or accessories she loves in other colours.
The blue blazer was from the Italian designer's Resort '17 collection. Woven with touches of wool, this twill piece has a double-breasted front, peak lapels and embossed gold buttons. The £720 blazer has sold out but was available at Farfetch. The style remains available in black.
Once again, the Duchess teamed the jacket with a black turtleneck sweater and black skinny jeans (most likely her Zara Body Curve Jeggings).
Today Kate stepped out in a new pair of Aquatalia 'Fallon' Chelsea boots (identified by What Kate Wore).
With elastic detailing and a stack heel, the 'Fallon' by Aquatalia is a gaucho-chelsea boot hybrid. The ankle boot is crafted from weather resistant black suede and finished with two zips. The style has sold out at most Aquatalia stockists but is still available in some sizes from Russell & Bromley for £295.
Kate finished the ensemble with her dainty KIKI 'Lauren' Yellow Gold Pave Diamond Leaf Earrings.
