The sea liner is owned by the Environment Research Council (NERC) and operated by the British Antarctic Survey (BAS), and will explore the Arctic and Antarctica for the next 25 to 30 years.

During the special event in Birkenhead, Merseyside, the pair were given a tour of the vessel and also met with apprentice engineers who worked on the building process.

Prior to that, the mum-of-three opted for the gorgeous number when she visited the Blenheim museum with Prince William during the couple’s royal tour of New Zealand in 2014.

She also stepped out in an almost identical Mulberry version of the ensemble for a royal visit to Belfast in 2017, sporting the same style of belt and buttons, this time featuring a classic shoulder cape aspect.
