  • The Duchess of Cambridge has just stepped out decked in her classic uniform for the opening of a new hospital accommodation at the Ronald McDonald House Evelina in London.

    And Catherine was back to business as usual for this engagement, in a traditional blue tweed Rebecca Taylor suit, with blazer and knee-length skirt.

    The outfit sees the Duchess return to her typical style, after a bit of a style departure the previous evening at a Buckingham Palace event, where she wore a jewelled Erdem dress and glittering, Oscar de la Renta heels.

    The Duchess paired the tweed suit with a pair of matching blue heels
    for the hospital visit, and swept her hair into a low half-ponytail. 

    She was visiting the children’s hospital to celebrate the launch of their new purpose-built accommodation, aiming to offer a ‘home away from home’ for the children who need to stay in the hospital for a long time.

    And after arriving at the hospital, the Duchess shared an adorable moment with one child, eight-year-old Isabelle Randall. The royal was treated to a gorgeous bouquet of flowers by the young girl, whose six-year-old brother Luke is staying at the hospital.

    The Duchess continued her tour of the hospital, visiting a baby boy called Jack, who was heartbreakingly born with only half a heart, and a baby called Mia, who had been in the hospital for over half a year.



    Catherine also saw how the hospital aims to help poorly children and their families. She took a tour around the 59-bedroom house, where families can stay free of charge whilst their children are in the hospital.

    While inside, the Duchess also visited another young
    resident to take part in a fun colouring session. Catherine asked
    the young boy who his favourite cartoon character was, to which he
    excitedly replied “Lightening McQueen!”


    The staff at the children’s hospital made sure to prepare every detail ahead of the Duchess’ visit, revealing that they’d decorated the hospital with flowers, and had prepared cupcakes ready for the royal visit.
