As for the beautiful red, three-quarter-length sleeved dress by designer Catherine Walker? Kate teamed it perfectly with black suede heels and matching black clutch complete with dainty silver necklace and stunning green amethyst and diamond drop earrings by Kiki McDonough.

In a message prior to her visit, the duchess, who has been Royal Patron for the charity since 2012 said: "I greatly admire the dedication, generosity and achievements of the charity's supporters and volunteers, and look forward to seeing the progress of this campaign."

And it looks like the 32-year-old royal was pretty overwhelmed by it all. The charity supports children with life-threatening conditions as well as their families so it's guaranteed to be something Kate feels passionately about.
