Kate Middleton Wears a Zara Leopard Skirt at the Ely and Caerau Children’s Centre

The Duchess of Cambridge is not letting the maelstrom surrounding Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan stop her from performing her royal duties.

This morning, she was all smiles as she visited the Ely and Caerau Children’s Centre as part of a 24-hour tour promoting a national survey on early childhood development. Her first stop was at MiniBrum at Thinktank Birmingham Science Museum yesterday, where, along with market research firm Ipsos MORI and the Royal Foundation, she posited “5 big questions on the under 5s” to get a better understanding of child rearing in Britain.

As a mom of three, one of whom will be the future King of England, the cause is clearly near and dear to the duchess’s heart. And by visiting institutions like the Ely and Caerau Children’s Centre, she can gain greater insight on how babies and toddlers can best be serviced.

“I see amazing work you’re doing here in so many areas,” she said at the center. “It’s just bringing it to light. The critical work you’re doing has a massive social—and economic—impact later down the years.”

Of course, her outfit was perfectly suited for the occasion. She wore a black turtleneck and camel Chesterfield coat by Massimo Dutti (a brand that has infiltrated the wardrobes of a number of royals), with a pleated leopard-print skirt by Zara. It was a look that made a statement but didn’t distract from the issues.
