Today The Duchess of Cambridge launched 5 Big Questions, a landmark survey which gives people across the UK an opportunity to provide their view on raising the next generation.
Kate is marking the launch with a 24 hour tour visiting London, Cardiff and Surrey. It began earlier today with a visit to MiniBrum at Thinktank Birmingham Science Museum.
The nationwide survey is part of the Duchess' ongoing Early Years Initiative, and the aim of the new project, in her own words: “I want to hear the key issues affecting our families and communities so I can focus my work on where it is needed most. My ambition is to provide a lasting change for generations to come.”
Kate wore a patterned blouse and trousers for today's outing. She debuted Tabitha Webb's 'Pansy Pussybow' blouse in green chevron (£295). Made in the UK, the silk top is now available for pre-order (with thanks to What Kate Wore for the ID).
Kate teamed it with her navy Jigsaw High Waisted Sport Luxe Trousers.
It appears the Duchess wore her navy suede Emmy London 'Josie' pumps.
There was a new piece of jewellery on her wrist. It's not very often we see Kate wear a bracelet so it was a nice surprise to see her accessorise with a Halcyon Days 'Maya' Torque Aquamarine and Gold Bangle (£110) - ID by UFO No More.
Halcyon Days is a British company specializing in fine enamelware, and it holds three Royal Warrants as suppliers of Objets d’Art. The Maya Torque bangle is a stylish open-end design with a hint of art deco where the twisted metal meets the aquamarine enamel finish.
Below is some footage from today's event:

Kate looked resplendent in a red Needle & Thread 'Aurora' Sequin Gown (£410).
The 'Aurora' gown from the brand's SS20 'Love Hearts' collection is a mix of lightweight tulle and heavy embellishment. Inspired by Victorian style - the sequins on this 'Aurora' gown are specially placed to resemble the intricate patterns of vintage lace. The slim silhouette is finished with ruffle trims along the neckline and shoulders.
The gown in also available in beige and blue at Net-a-Porter.
A shorter version of the 'Aurora' style is available at Net-A-Porter.
The Duchess teamed it with her red pony hair Jenny Packham 'Casa' clutch and red suede Gianvito Rossi pumps.
Kate finished the look with a new pair of ruby drop earrings by Soru Jewellery (US$270).
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were in Bradford today where they visited a number of projects which support community cohesion in the diverse city of Yorkshire.
The royal couple received a warm welcome from the locals outside City Hall in Centenary Square.
The Duke and Duchess then popped into MyLahore’s flagship restaurant to learn about some of the charitable work that the restaurant does to support the community.
William and Kate then visited one of Bradford’s Khidmat Centres, whose main focus is to help the most vulnerable members of the community from minority ethnic backgrounds.
For their final stop in Bradford, The Duke and Duchess joined a workshop run by Near Neighbours.
The organisation brings people together in communities across the UK that are religiously and ethnically diverse, so that they can get to know each other better, build relationships of trust, and collaborate together on initiatives that improve the local community that they live in.
Kensington Palace posted a lovely video of Kate and William's day out in Bradford.

The Duchess topped off the look with the Sapphire & Diamond Oval Drop 'Diana' Earrings.
