The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge marked Canada Day on Wednesday with a video call to staff at Fraser Health's Surrey Memorial Hospital in British Columbia.
William and Kate thanked frontline workers across the country for their amazing work protecting and supporting their communities.
The Duchess showed sartorial diplomacy by sporting Canada's national colours- red and white. The new piece appears to be the Alexander McQueen tweed shift dress (ID by @PamWalters1 on Twitter).
I suspect Kate may have added some length to this mini dress from McQueen's ready-to-wear collection. Made in Italy, this tailored tweed shift dress features a jewel neck, short sleeves, hidden back zipper, and is finished with a silk lining. Below is a closer look at the cotton/wool blend tweed fabric in a mix of red, white and black.
It was hard to get a good look at Kate's earrings, but they appear to be a hoop style.
The Duchess of Cambridge visited The Nook in Norfolk on Thursday to mark the end of Children's Hospice Week.
During her visit as Patron of East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH), Kate helped create a patio garden, using plants bought during her visit to Fakenham Garden Centre last week.
The Duchess worked alongside an EACH volunteer gardener to plant a garden that will provide enjoyment for children and families.
Kate also spent time with families using The Nook care facilities.
The Duchess also recorded a message for all children's hospices as part of Children's Hospice Week:
Kate looked fabulous in florals, sporting a new dress by Faithfull the Brand (ID by @regalreplikate).
It is the label's $189 'Marie-Louise' style, decorated with colorful hand-painted blooms against a lilac backdrop, and shirred at the sleeves and bust to create an empire shape.
Faithfull the Brand is a label we have not seen Kate wear before. Founded in Bali in 2012, Faithfull is the brainchild of Sarah-Jane Abrahams and Helle Them-Enger. It melds their respective Australian easy-going spirit with Scandinavian chic minimalism. Each piece is hand-dyed, printed and made by local artisans in Indonesia. The collections are rooted in the spirit of travel, and many of the patterns are inspired by fabrics collected from vintage markets all over the world. Here's a small curation of other Faithfull pieces I can see Kate adding to her closet!
On her feet, Kate wore her Russell & Bromley 'Coco-Nut' Nude Ankle Strap Espadrilles.
The Duchess accessorized with her Accessorize Twisted Circle Drop Earrings.
The Duchess of Cambridge and the Duchess of Cornwall have hosted a joint video call with three of their respective children’s hospice Patronages to mark this year’s Children’s Hospice Week.
Kate appears to have worn her green Diane von Furstenberg 'Maja' Dress.
The belted DVF 'Maja' dress features three-quarter length sleeves, and V back secured along the full length of the back with goldtone snap fastenings.
Kate first wore it for the British Consul-General reception in Los Angeles during the 2011 North American royal tour and then a few weeks later to the pre-Wedding party of Zara Phillips and a Mike Tindall.
She accessorized with her Catherine Zoraida Gold Fern Drop Earrings.
In her first public engagement since lockdown, The Duchess of Cambridge visited Fakenham Garden Centre in Norfolk on Thursday afternoon.
She met the owners and staff. Kate wanted to hear how the Covid-19 pandemic had affected the family-run business, which first opened in 1984.

The Duchess of Cambridge will lead an online assembly on Kindness for the Oak National Academy tomorrow (Thursday 18th June) in her role as Patron of Place2Be.
The video was recorded last week and a snippet was released today. The Duchess will use a lesson plan from the charity's Mentally Healthy Schools Platform, where schools can find hundreds of resources to help them support their pupils' wellbeing.
Tune in from 10 am (local time) tomorrow to watch the full assembly which will be available on Youtube:
Kate wore a floral print garment by M&S. The print is available on a dress and top from the UK retailer. At this point, I'm not sure which piece the Duchess wore.
An elasticated shirring detail creates a waist-defining silhouette, while short sleeves with pleating at the shoulders add volume. Below is a closer look at the floral cabbage print.
