After a night of glitz and glamour — and wearing a tiara! — the Duchess of Cambridge was back at work in her typical day clothes.
The pregnant royal took a trip up to Manchester on Wednesday morning to attend the Children’s Global Media Summit. For the occasion, Kate Middleton wrapped up in a new $660 belted jacket from one of her favorite British high street labels, L.K. Bennett.
The Delli check coat, which boasts oversized buttons and a collarless design, is currently available in-store and online as part of the company’s Fall/Winter 2017 collection.
The Duchess paired her coat with smart black heels and wore a $620 festive red dress from another British brand, Goat.
The 35-year-old’s a big fan of the London-based womenswear label, founded by John Lewis in 2011. She’s worn a number of pieces from the company during her third pregnancy, including a cream coat that she wore to visit a children’s center last month.
The Duchess attended the summit with her husband, Prince William, in tow. The pair took part in a forum and the Duke of Cambridge was also selected to deliver the keynote speech at the event, which brought together creatives, technology innovators, policymakers, executives, and thought leaders from around the globe.
His Royal Highness said in his keynote speech: “Parents like Catherine and me are raising the first generation of digitally-immersed children – and this gives us many reasons to be optimistic about the impact of technology on childhood.” The Duke talked about how, whilst digital media has seen young people develop a passion for civic involvement; “What we cannot do, however, is pretend that the impact of digital technology is all positive or, indeed, even understood. “We have put the most powerful information technology in human history into the hands of our children – yet we do not yet understand its impact on adults, let alone the very young.” And The Duke also spoke about how parents feel they have to make up the rules as they go along. “We can be hopeful about the future of our society when we all know that protecting the essence of childhood remains our collective and urgent priority,” His Royal Highness said. #cgms2017
