For the second event of the royal visit to Sweden, The Duke and Duchess traveled to the Royal Palace of Stockholm to attend a luncheon hosted by King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia to welcome them to Sweden. Fifteen members of the Swedish Royal Court also attended the formal lunch, including Crown Princess Victoria and her husband Prince Daniel.
Kate wore a bespoke forest green tunic dress by Catherine Walker which she teamed with sheer black pantyhose and her trusty Tod's Black Suede Block Heel Pumps.
Following the luncheon, William and Kate, accompanied by Victoria and Daniel walked through the picturesque cobbled streets of Stockholm from the Royal Palace to the Nobel Museum.
For the walkabout Kate topped the Catherine Walker dress with a matching coat also by the London-based atelier. She trimmed the piece with a contrasting black faux-fur collar (£65) and matching cuffs (£40) by Troy London.
The Duchess complemented the look with her Peruvian Connection 'Vallnord' Alpaca Fur Hat (US$99).
She added a touch of vintage chic with a black Mulberry Mini Seaton Bag (£895).
The Mini Seaton's sleek lines and streamlined silhouette are sized down from Mulberry's iconic 'Seaton' style. Its petite size makes it ideal for a day-evening bag or to pack away for a trip. Featuring equestrian-inspired detailing such as raw-edged construction and the signature Rider's Lock, the Mini Seaton can be worn on its adjustable shoulder strap or carried by its neat top handle.
To prevent slipping in the snowy conditions, Kate aptly changed into her Stuart Weitzman 'HalfNHalf' black suede boots.
She completed the look with her Kiki McDonough 'Special Edition' drop earrings featuring green tourmaline and green amethyst stones surrounded by diamonds. Set in yellow gold, the exclusive earrings were made especially for Kate by KIKI to mark the birth of Princess Charlotte. Kate premiered them during the royal tour of India in April 2016 for a meeting with the Indian Prime Minister.
Tonight, William and Kate will attend a black tie dinner at the Residence of the British Ambassador.
