Kate Middleton wows in baby pink long coat as she steps out for 1st time after Harry, Meghan’s interview

Kate Middleton stole the show during a visit to a primary school in London on Thursday, as the duchess was spotted for the first time since Meghan Markle and Prince Harry sat down with Oprah Winfrey for their bombshell interview that aired Sunday night.
The Duchess of Cambridge was seen donning a long pink wool coat with an open collar, paired with a pink jumper of a similar hue. The jumper seemed to be made of thick material and featured a scalloped neckline. For footwear, Kate coupled the outfit with suede black heels by Italian designer Gianvito Rossi and wore a floral, multicolored mask to complete the look, Express UK reported.
For jewelry, Kate rocked a pair of gold hoop earrings which she has worn several times in the past. Last month, she wore the same during a video call with a student nurse studying at Ulster University.
That said, there may be a deeper meaning behind Kate's choice of wearing an all-pink outfit. According to Bourn Creative and Color Psychology, pink is a warm color that represents love and tenderness. The shade worn by Kate, arguably a lighter shade of pink, is "delicate" and "may symbolize friendship, affection, harmony, peace, and approachability," per the report. This comes after Meghan alleged to Oprah that Kate made her cry before her wedding in 2018.
Personal stylist and fashion expert Samantha Harman said it was quite possible there was a hidden meaning behind the Duchess of Cambridge’s outfit. “Lots of thought and planning goes into royal engagement looks," she told Express UK. “Far from being superficial, what you wear says a lot about you and we can use clothing to convey a message to the world. Pink is a calming color associated with kindness and femininity. So it could be that Kate wants to portray a sense of calm at a time when she knows the eyes of the world are on her.”
“This is her first public engagement since the Oprah interview and the pressure to get the look right and convey the right message has probably been intense," the personal stylist added.
During Sunday night’s interview with Oprah, Meghan responded to tabloids reporting that she had made Kate cry days before marrying Prince Harry, Meghan answered, "No, the reverse happened."
“A few days before the wedding, she was upset about something, pertaining, yes, the issue was correct about flower girl dresses, and it made me cry, and it really hurt my feelings, and I thought in the context of everything else that was going on in those days leading to the wedding, it didn't make sense to not be just doing whatever everyone else is doing, which was trying to be supportive knowing what was going on with my dad and whatnot.” Meghan said. She added, however, that she didn't want "to be disparaging to anyone," but simply wanted to clear the air.
Kate was seen in a car with Prince William by her side as they left Kensington Palace. The prince wore a dark coat and jumper, a white shirt, and a blue mask.
