It was a busy day for the Duchess of Cambridge with a line up of engagements. Her first stop was at Hampton Court Palace to unveil their newest attraction, The Magic Garden.
The attraction is an enchanted themed children's play area featuring a 25 foot-long sleeping dragon, colourful turrets, battlements and a secret grotto.
The garden has been designed by the award-winning landscape architect of RHS Chelsea, Robert Myers and is built in King Henry VIII’s former tiltyard (a courtyard used for jousting practice and tournaments). It draws inspiration from the Tudor Court, allowing youngsters to learn about Hampton Court’s history while they play.
For the occasion, Kate wore her blue twill Michael Kors swing coat.
She debuted the piece by the American designer during the Royal tour of Australia in 2014.
Under the coat, we got a glimpse of the Roksanda Ilincic 'Peridot' Shift Dress.
This is the third occasion Kate has publicly worn the dress. It premiered in 2011 during the North America tour, and she repeated it for the GREAT Campaign reception in 2012.
On her feet were the LK Bennett 'Fern' trench leather pumps.
She carried a new frame clutch by LK Bennett. It is the 'Nina' style, also in trench leather to match her shoes. It is from an upcoming collection and you can add your name to the wait list.
The Duchess' second event of the day was a luncheon with the Anna Freud Centre. This was her first engagement as the newly appointed patron of the charity.
Kate first visited the centre in September last year to gain an insight into the provision of alternative education for children with mental health issues.
For the lunch reception at Spencer House, Kate removed her Michael Kors coat to reveal the 'Peridot' dress and Cartier Ballon Bleu Stainless Steel Bracelet Watch.
Later today, Kate will attend the Vogue 100 exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery (NPG). As patron of the NPG, Kate stars on the cover of the magazine's centenary issue and also agreed for two images from the shoot to be installed within the exhibition.
