Kate Middleton Steps Out In The Snow

On her first public outing since her royal engagement was announced, Kate was in London doing a spot of charity caroling in the snow.

Her style was typically classic, and the future princess opted for a black simple frock coat, suede boots and opaque tights.

Middleton has kept low profile since she wore a much copied electric-blue Issa dress to announce her marriage plans with Prince William last month - so she caused camera shutters to flutter when she attended a benefit for the Harry Van Straubenzee Memorial Fund, which benefits children in Uganda. Her future husband is a patron of the charity.
