She stepped out on Wednesday, January 10, for a solo engagement at the Reach Academy in Feltham, London.
While visiting Nottingham with Prince Harry in December, the actress teamed her skirt and boots by British brands Joseph and Kurt Geiger with a coat by Canadian brand Package.
The Duchess chose a recycled blue dress.
Beyond parents, Kate met with staff and students in the school's secondary program, where she learned about support services offered to students, including mental health and LGBTQ groups who are there to help students with any needs. (A similar style is available at Nordstrom.) She's been seen publicly in the dress at least twice before when she was pregnant with Princess Charlotte. Online: "She will be spending the day privately". The Duchess was last pictured in public on Sunday, when she again attended a church service at Sandringham.
A student held the fluffy pup proudly as Middleton, an outspoken advocate for mental health, presented him with the award.
Catherine appeared to recycle her Moloh coat £445 (AU$769) for the occasion and showed off her small baby bump as she braved the cold.
While the Duchess has the world's biggest designers clamouring to dress her, when it comes to casual events she can't go past her 13-year-old Penelope Chilvers Long Tassel Boots, which she's been wearing since her university days at St Andrews with Prince William.
