A ray of sunshine! Princess Kate was a vivid sight as she attended a Mental Health Awareness Week event in England on Tuesday 16 May.

The 41-year-old Princess of Wales visited the Dame Kelly Holmes Trust – a charity that provides mentoring and coaching for children through partnerships with athletes – wearing a yellow LK Bennett blazer. The color seemed like a nice nod to the organization as the sunny hue features in the Dame Kelly Holmes Trust logo.

Kate paired the outerwear with a white ribbed top and straight-leg trousers from Alexander McQueen. The British native completed the outfit with a pair of Veja sneakers, which she often wears for more relaxed royal engagements. (The shoe label is also favored by Kate’s sister-in-law Megan Markle and other stars, including Reese Witherspoon, Emily Ratajkowski, Katie Holmes and more.)

During the outing, the princess was photographed cheering on children playing with beanbags. She later joined in the fun herself.

Kate’s solo engagement follows her and her husband Prince William volunteered for “The Big Help Out” on May 8th. The couple, who tied the knot in April 2011, were joined in the 3rd Upton Scout hat by their three children Prince George, 9, Princess Charlotte, 8, and Prince Louis, 5. (Kate is co-president of the Boy Scout Association.)

The occasion marked Louis’ first official royal engagement – and it was as focused as ever. Footage from the family performance showed the little king shoveling dirt into a wheelbarrow. His siblings were also busy building and painting furniture.

The Cambridges were all coordinated in tones of blue, with Kate sporting a puffy blouse and fitted cargo pants.

Kate also wore the color the following day for a garden party at Buckingham Palace on May 9th. She looked dainty in a baby blue Elie Saab dress that featured sheer sleeves and polka dots throughout. The dress is finished with a bow at the neckline and lace details. Kate completed the look with a Philip Treacy hat embellished with a protruding flower and metallic pumps by Gianvito Rossi. The princess wore the dress and fascinator at Royal Ascot in June 2019.

She hosted the soirée with 40-year-old William, who looked dapper in a black suit and matching top hat. The couple greeted guests at the gathering next door Prince Edward and his wife Sophie, Duchess of Edinburgh.

The celebration was hosted by King Charles IIIHowever, the 74-year-old monarch – who was officially crowned at his coronation ceremony on May 1 – was unable to attend due to a commitment at Cambridge University’s new Whittle Laboratory.
