Kate Middleton, 37, teamed a pair of £130 khaki culottes from one of her favourite high-street brand’s Jigsaw with a £39 berry-coloured turtleneck from Warehouse, which features scallop detailing around the neck-line and sleeves.
The mother-of-three added a touch of designer to her outfit in the form of a chic £3k maroon-coloured Chanel bag and completed her look with a pair of coordinating heeled loafers from Tod’s, which retail at £353.
The demure Duchess, who is Patron of the Natural History Museum, is visiting the Angela Marmont Centre for UK Biodiversity to hear how it is championing and helping to protect UK wildlife.
Kate’s appearance this morning comes ahead of her official visit to Pakistan later this month with husband Prince William, 37.
The royal, who has won praise for her glossy brown locks, wore her hair down in a loose wave for the occasion – and accessorised with a pair of dainty Oak Leaf hoop earrings from Asprey’s Woodland Collection.
The Angela Marmont Centre (AMC) is a unique scientific hub located in the Natural History Museum that is dedicated to the study of the UK’s natural world.
It helps public visitors identify their finds, provides vital training in wildlife identification, and leads research and citizen science projects that are helping to transform our understanding of over 80,000 species of wildlife known to exist in the UK today.
With populations of many UK species declining, and a significant proportion threatened with local extinction, it brings together a host of individuals and organisations all dedicated to building understanding of the UK’s wildlife, so that it can be better protected for future generations.
The dedicated staff work with colleagues from across the Natural History Museum to carry out a range of scientific research
This includes everything from studying how and why the UK’s wildlife is changing, through to applying ground-breaking scientific techniques, including analysis of environmental DNA, to detect and identify the miniscule insects and microorganisms that play an important role in healthy environments.
During her visit, Her Royal Highness will view some of Museum’s specimens and see DNA sequencing in action.
The Duchess is a strong advocate for the positive impact that nature and the outdoors can have on our physical and mental wellbeing, and in particular for childhood development.
Alongside its national programme of activity, the Natural History Museum aims to inspire its millions of visitors to act for nature.
It is forging partnerships across the UK to empower school children, families and local communities to help protect the wildlife in urban areas.
Her Royal Highness has been Patron of the Natural History Museum since 2013.
