The Duchess of Cambridge visited Evelina London's Sunshine House in South London today.

The 37-year-old met the Family Nurse Partnership team, a home-visiting programme that helps support first time young mums and families - a cause close to Kate's work with the early years sector.

For the occasion, Kate put her own spin on workwear in a chic monochrome outfit.

The duchess ditched her much favoured midi dresses for a pair of high-waisted, cropped black trousers with a wide-leg silhouette.

She paired the bottoms with a polka dot shirt, worn tucked in, and a pair of black court shoes.

Kate's bargain £1.50 earrings from Accessorize, first debuted during a visit to RHS Garden Wisley in Surrey last week, finished the look.

The mum-of-three also had her newly refreshed hairdo styled into her signature curls.
