The Duchess of Cambridge wore a face mask for the first time at her latest royal engagement.
Kate Middleton opted for a $US19 (£15) floral mask by London-based brand Amaia, according to the Mail Online. She paired it with a $US2,423 (£1,850) designer dress for an outing on Tuesday.
The duchess re-wore a button-down Suzannah dress that she most famously wore to Wimbledon last year, along with a pair of heels by Tabitha Simmons.
However, the duchess gave the dress a completely new look by opting to wear the detachable silk belt that it comes with. During her appearance at Wimbledon, pictured below, she opted for a black belt instead.
Middleton was visiting Baby Basics UK in Sheffield as part of her latest project to help families who rely on the service.
The royal has spearheaded a new project which involves 19 brands coming together to donate more than 10,000 new items to baby banks across the nation.
“Over recent months, I have heard from families who have been supported by baby banks through the most difficult of times and I have been deeply moved by their stories,” the duchess said.
“Having somewhere to turn to for support is important for all families, and baby banks work every day, up and down the country, to provide immediate, tangible, and practical help for parents and carers when they are most in need.
“Baby banks are driven by incredible volunteers, demonstrating the power of community spirit in supporting families and coming together to raise the next generation. Thanks to the generosity of the companies taking part in this initiative, baby banks across the UK will be able to support even more families through this particularly challenging time,” she added.
