Duchess of Cambridge wows in trousers and Gucci pussybow blouse

The Duchess of Cambridge put her best fashion foot forward for a day out on March 12! Kate had two visits on the agenda for the day – the Henry Fawcett Children's Centre and one of her patronages, the National Portrait Gallery – and stepped out in a look somewhat rare for her. The mom-of-three paired black affordable trousers with a gorgeous high-end pop of colour, and was ready for fun.

The 37-year-old brought some colour to the otherwise cloudy day, dazzling in a pink-purple pussybow blouse by one of her go-to luxury designers and black wide-leg trousers by British brand Jigsaw. As for accessories, Kate carried a small patent handbag by Aspinal, anchoring the ensemble with black suede pumps.

Eagle-eyed royal watchers may have noticed the gorgeous earrings Kate chose for the occasion. The pair of dainty jewels – her Links of London Hope Egg Earrings – haven't made an appearance since 2012! As always, her brunette hair was styled perfectly in her signature bouncy curls, and her hands only decorated with her jaw-dropping engagement ring from Prince William in 2010.

This appearance follows Commonwealth Day, on which senior members of the Royal Family – including the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall, and the Queen – all joined together at Westminster Abbey for a poignant ceremony. For the Commonwealth's 70th anniversary, Kate was radiant in a red Catherine Walker military style coat, paired with a matching hat, a grey clutch and grey suede pumps for the event.

Fans of the Duchess of Cambridge can expect to spot her again on March 19, when she'll pay a visit to the Foundling Museum to understand how they use art to make a positive contribution to society by engaging with vulnerable and marginalized young people.
