Following this morning's Royal Train stops in Edinburgh and Berwick-Upon-Tweed, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge travelled further south to visit the historic market and mill town of Batley in West Yorkshire.
The royal couple popped into the Batley Community Centre to meet volunteers who have supported elderly members of their community throughout the COVID-19 pandemic by sending cards, having regular phone calls and dropping off shopping, food bags and activity packs.
Kate also met Len Gardner, who The Duchess has spoken to previously as part of the NHS Volunteer Responder ‘Check-in and Chat’ scheme.
For the stop in Batley, Kate wore a mix of familiar pieces.
She stepped out in her Hobbs London 'Bianca' Navy Maxi Coat and Jigsaw High Waisted Sport Luxe Trousers.
Kate coordinated the look with her navy embossed croc belt and Emmy London 'Josie' Block Heel Pumps.
The Duchess offset the navy ensemble with an ivory sweater.
The ribbed crew-neck knit pullover appears to be the same one she wore for the 5 Big Insights unveiling.
Kate debuted the Métier Roma small suede shoulder bag (£1,080).
It is expertly made in Italy from supple suede with a curved front flap which opens via a gold twist-lock clasp revealing multiple compartments, card slots and a zip pocket. It also has a detachable shoulder strap plus detachable chain top handle for added versatility.
The Simone Rocha Faux-Pearl Curb-Chain Earrings made a return.
There was a new face mask by Amaia in the Blue Pheobe print.
William and Kate's final stop of the day was in Manchester where they paid tribute to volunteers at FairShare.
The organisation is the UK’s national network of charitable food redistributors, with the aim of fighting hunger and food waste by redistributing good quality in-date surplus food to frontline charities across the UK.
Following the warehouse tour, The Duke and Duchess watched a special performance by Wayne Ellington and Manchester Inspirational Voices, presented by Band on the Wall, a local independent music venue which has been supported during COVID-19 by the Government’s Culture Recovery Fund.
There was a slight change to Kate's outfit from the Batley stopover. She premiered a festive Fair Isle sweater.
The knit pullover is the Brora x TROY Supersoft Lambswool Fair Isle Jumper in Almond (£195). Made in the north of Scotland, the design of the sweater is a collaboration between two British brand's Brora and TROY London - both favoured by the Duchess.
There was also a new Amaia face mask in a Wiltshire bud liberty print.
