Kate Middleton Goes Business-Professional In New Look

Whenever Kate Middleton goes out in public, the whole world is watching. 

Whether dressed casually to go shopping or in formal attire for a special event, she always manages to look like a fashion icon. In fact, many of her styles sell out within hours of her wearing them.

Although it's only February, Kate has already had a busy 2022. She made her first appearance of the new year with husband Prince William in support of the Foundling Museum, with the Duchess of Cambridge donning a blue ensemble that featured a turtleneck, trousers, and a coordinating royal blue coat (per InStyle). 

She then went casual for her new role as patron of the Royal Football Union and the Royal Football League, a role she is taking over from her brother-in-law, Prince Harry. 

"I am so thrilled to become Patron of the Rugby Football League and Rugby Football Union — two fantastic organizations who are committed to harnessing the power that sport can have in bringing communities together and helping individuals flourish," she wrote on Instagram. "I look forward to working with them across all levels of the games, and to cheering England on in what promises to be an exciting year for both sports!"

And, for her latest charitable visit, Kate decided to go with a professional look that still managed to turn heads.

Kate Middleton dresses professional for Children's Mental Health Week

Kate Middleton paid a visit to PACT (Parents and Communities Together), which works with families to support children's mental well-being. The Duchess met with volunteers and parents who participate in the organization's weekly MumSpace group and even helped out during a cooking workshop (per Daily Mail). 

For the occasion, Kate looked professional, wearing a checked black blazer, a black top, and LK Bennet trousers. She accessorized her ensemble with a matching black belt, drop pearl earrings, and an Astley Clarke necklace.

The visit was in conjunction with Children's Mental Health Week in the U.K., a cause that's important to Kate. "The stigma around mental health means that many children do not get the help that they so badly need," she said in a video PSA in 2015. "This needs to change." 

She has also urged parents to make sure that they take care of their own emotional well-being, especially during the pandemic. 

"This is a hugely challenging time for us all so please look after yourself too," she said (via People). "Find those ways in which to share your thoughts and your feelings or find someone to talk to because we really do need to be the very best versions of ourselves for the children in our care."
