Kensington Palace announced that The Duchess of Cambridge has today become the Patron of The Royal Photographic Society (RPS), taking over from the Queen, who had held the role for 67 years.
To mark the occasion, Kate attended a photography workshop for Action for Children, run by The RPS at Warren Park.
The RPS was founded in 1853 with the objective of promoting the art and science of photography. The Duchess has a longstanding interest in photography, and her patronage of The RPS will further highlight the beneficial impact that art and creativity can have on emotional wellbeing, particularly for children and young people.
The Duchess stepped out in a new breezy liberty print dress by Ridley London.
It is the 'Virginia Midi' style (£449) made from silk chiffon and designed with a v-neck, fitted bodice, short floaty sleeves and an a-line skirt with a frounced hem.
She wore her brown suede Casteñer 'Carina' 80 espadrille wedges.
Kate accessorized with her gold Catherine Zoraida Fern Hoop Earrings.
