Kate Middleton‘s latest engagement saw the the mum-of-three break royal protocol.

The Duchess of Cambridge was attending the opening of the Nook children’s hospice in Norfolk as part of her role as patron of the East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices.

As always, Kate, 37, looked incredible in a bright magenta skirt suit from designer, Oscar de la Renta.

The funky two piece featured black buttons so Kate naturally matched the look with simple black accessories.

The royal’s choices included a black suede pair of Gianvito Rossi heels and an Aspinal of London clutch.

A fan of recycling designer outfits, Kate has worn the ensemble before, including earlier this year at the Royal Opera House in January and at a mental health conference in 2017.

And as the weather gets colder, Kate opted for opaque tights for the occasion.

For some bizarre reason, member’s of the royal family wearing hosiery has always been debated.

There’s no officially rule book but it’s thought that royal women are expected to wear skin-coloured tights for royal engagements, a precedent set by the Queen.

This has been stressed by experts in the past.

CNN Royal Commentator, Victoria Arbiter previously spoke to Insider after Meghan Markle appeared not to be wearing tights for her engagement photos with Prince Harry.

She said: “You never see a royal without their nude stockings.

“Meghan, from what I can see from the engagement photographs, it doesn’t look like she was wearing tights or stockings.

“I would say that’s really the only hard, steadfast rule in terms of what the Queen requires.”

Regardless of whether or not Kate has broken royal protocol, her fans are totally here for it.

On social media, one fan wrote: “I often wonder if she is happy when the weather turns cold enough to wear opaque dark tights rather than the requisite nude ones!”

Another added: “Absolutely chic! I love the black tights!!”
