Nothing could blow the Duchess of Cambridge's composure off course as she arrived at a school today – not even the appalling British weather.
Kate turned up at Northolt High School in west London to be hit by a gust of wind that ruffled hair, but not the Duchess's feathers.
Unfazed as always, she looked immaculate in a new kingfisher blue dress by LK Bennett and black suede heels as she arrived to officially open the school's ICAP Art Room for her second Royal duty of the year.
Kate has been Royal Patron of The Art Room charity since 2012. It is a national charity which offers art as therapy to children and young people aged five to 16 who are facing challenges in their lives.
As she walked into the school gym, she was hit by a blast of a different kind – the roar of cheers, whistles and applause from hundreds of delighted schoolchildren.
She then toured the classrooms to chat with pupils about their arty creations.
