For the midweek event, Duchess Kate looked beautiful in an emerald green Emilia Wickstead dress that shared paired with her classic nude heels and a matching nude clutch. She kept her makeup and jewellery minimal while rocking her signature bouncy blowout.

The mother-of-three has been a champion for mental health, especially of children, for years. Just this past January the duchess helped to launch a hotline where children and their families could get support for difficult issues, including mental health struggles. Later on Wednesday, the duchess will also "visit the Pears Family School in its new building and meet children and their families participating in a music class."

This outing comes just one week after Duchess Kate stepped out alongside her brother-in-law Prince Harry for Anzac Day, where the two honoured the fallen soldiers of Australia and New Zealand.
