Kate Middleton has been spotted looking stunning as she headed out for a full day of royal engagements on 7 May.

The 39 year old wore a bright red coat from Eponine buttoned all the way to the top with a nude calf-length skirt alongside a pair of brown heels.

The brunette beauty styled her mane down into loose waves and appeared to be smiling underneath a blue medical face mask.

Keeping the make up to a minimum, she donned black eyeliner and eyeshadow and accessorised the look with a brown purse and a pair of dangling earrings.


The Duchess of Cambridge visited a hospital in Eat London before making her way to the National Portrait Gallery, which she is a royal patron for, to meet photographers featured in her new photo book Hold Still.

The book features a collection of 100 photographs depicting the UK during the coronavirus lockdown.

The snaps were taken during a six-week period during May and June and focused on three main themes – Helpers and Heroes, Your New Normal and Acts of Kindness.


Kate's royal engagements come after she took to her official Instagram to share a clip and several photos of herself hiding copies of the book across the UK, including one outside Kensington Palace, for an epic treasure hunt.

In the caption, she told her 12.8million followers: "Let the search begin!

"We’ve joined @bookfairies_uk for the day to share copies of Hold Still around the UK with you."

She went on to explain that she's hidden a letter in each book as she said: "Each copy is adorned with a gold book fairy sticker, gold ribbon, and has a letter from The Duchess tucked inside.

"To make this activity even more special, book fairies, the Hold Still judges and participants of the final 100 images are leaving copies at places that gave them hope during the lockdown.

"This special book documenting the unique collection of photographs goes on sale today in UK bookshops and online. #hsbookfairies #HoldStill2020 #ibelieveinbookfairies".
