Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge attended her first public in-person event this year – wearing a gorgeous Boden pink sweater – with husband Prince William by her side.

• The outing was the first since Prince Harry and Meghan’s bombshell interview which aired earlier this week
• Kate and William visited an East London school to congratulate teachers on reopening after lockdown
• In other Royal News, Prince William has spoken out on Royal Family ‘racism’

Kate Middleton chose to wear a pretty pink Boden scalloped sweater to visit a school in Stratford, East London. She teamed the bright sweater with a perfectly matched pink coat from Max & Co. and black trousers.

A new season hero coat from Max & Co. this version has a slightly flared silhouette that looks amazing dressed up or down.

Currently, the Boden sweater is still in stock, but if you’re a fan of the royal look get in there fast, as with all Kate Middleton style pieces, they seem to sell out fast. As well as teaming yours with trousers like Kate, this Boden jumper would look equally stylish with a pair of your best jeans.

There’s also still a selection of pink coats (as well as the one above) for sale on the Max & Co. website for a look to seriously rival Kate’s.

Kate and William’s first public in-person duties of the year saw them head to School 21 in Stratford to talk with teachers during the first week of schools reopening across the country.

The royals were keen to learn about the school’s newest lessons on dealing with anxiety and depression which have been funded by a grant from the Royal Foundation of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry.

It’s not the first time Kate has stunned in popular brand Boden. As well as this latest standout outfit, she also wore one of the brand’s pussy bow blouses for a video call earlier this week.

It looks like Kate just can’t get enough of Boden’s simple designs.
