Kate Middleton stuns in chic coat dress as she makes rare joint appearance with Queen Elizabeth
Kate Middleton and the Queen made a rare joint appearance as they paid a visit to King's College in London on Tuesday to officially open the Bush House at the institute. The pair dressed up in their finest to mark their first joint appearance of the year.
For the royal outing, the Duchess of Cambridge donned a chic gray dress while the monarch stuck to her all-time favorite designer Stewart Parvin's pink dress. Kate looked flawless in her bespoke Catherine Walker coat dress and she paired it with the Kiki McDonough 18k yellow gold classics cushion-cut morganite and diamond drop earrings.
She further accessorized the look with a black Mulberry clutch, and her favorite Gianvito Rossi 'Piper' pumps completed the look. As per Harper's Bazar, the Duchess and the monarch were reportedly going to "watch robotics demos, meet students on the virtual trading floor and check out one of two new roof terraces."
Kensington Palace also reported that, after Kate's joint appearance with the Queen, the Duchess was scheduled to head to the Foundling Museum "to understand how they use art to make a positive contribution to society by engaging with vulnerable and marginalized young people."
As per the media outlet, the Foundling Museum gives visitors a chance to discover the rich history of the Foundling Hospital, which was both the first children's hospital opened to save children at risk of abandonment in the UK, as well as its first ever public art gallery.
The Queen and Kate's joint appearance comes on the heels of news that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, the Duchess and Duke of Sussex, have officially separated their royal household from that of Prince William and Kate. The Kensington Palace officially announced the separation on Thursday, March 14.
The final formalities, which will be established by spring, will be overseen by Prince Charles. “This long-planned move will ensure that permanent support arrangements for The Duke and Duchess’s work are in place as they start their family and move to their official residence at Frogmore Cottage,” a statement from the palace read.
Meghan and Harry's offices will also be moved out of Kensington Palace and into Buckingham Palace, where the 92-year-old monarch resides. However, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will be relocating to their new cottage home in Windsor later this spring.
