Duchess Kate looked radiant in an outfit from two of her favourite British brands, featuring a black top with mesh polka dot sleeves and neckline from Hobbs and a midnight blue silk knee-length skirt from one of her go-to designers, Jenny Packham.

A black belt at the waist highlighted the Duchess' baby bump, and she finished off her ensemble with Cassandra Goad Temple of Heaven earrings and classic black court shoes.

The Duchess was all smiles as she greeted attendees at the event for the mental heath charity's first-ever Wellbeing in Schools Awards and presented the Child Champion Award to 11-year-old Bailey Dunne, from Highfield Community Primary School in Sunderland. The charity provides counselling for children in school.

In the event programme for the event, Kate wrote:

"The commitment, dedication and hard work that is going in across the schools involved with Place2Be is truly humbling, and to recognise that feels incredibly important."


The Duchess has been making one stylish appearance after another the past couple of weeks, most recently stepping out in a full-length black Jenny Packham design to meet the only other human being capable of causing as much fanfare as herself: Harry Styles.
