Kate Middleton looked stylish in green as she joined Prince William at Kew Gardens for an educational event related to her Earthshot Prize environmental initiative.
The Duchess of Cambridge, 39, dusted off an emerald Erdem coat last worn in 2016 for the outing, pairing the centerpiece with a fitted lime green sweater and black wide-leg pants.
To keep it simple, Kate wore her brown locks loose around her shoulders and played down her accessories. Meanwhile, William looked stylish in a navy suit with a light blue open-necked shirt.
The couple were joined by Mayor of London Sadiq Khan, TV presenter Steve Backshall and two-time Olympic rowing champion Helen Glover as they took part in activities alongside children at Heathlands School, Hounslow.
The Generation Earthshot event, which takes place on Sunday ahead of the inaugural Earthshot Prize, encourages kids to “generate big, bold ideas to fix the planet.”

The Duke and Duchess appeared in good spirits as they mingled with children and VIPs at the event, taking turns to sit at activity tables with smaller groups.
It’s an important week for the couple, with William and Kate expected to attend the Earthshot Award ceremony at Alexandra Palace later this week.
Broadcast to a global audience via the BBC and Discovery +, the awards ceremony will celebrate the incredible 15 finalists from around the world before honoring the top five winners of the Earthshot Prize.
These five solutions will have the potential to address the biggest environmental challenges facing our planet and will each receive £ 1million to help them develop.
The first finalists for the award include a 14-year-old Indian inventor who works to improve air quality in India, a tiny water treatment plant in Japan that turns 98 percent of wastewater into clean water and the country of Costa Rica for a pioneering project to restore the rainforest.

Recent findings from The Children’s Commissioner’s Big Ask show that young people are concerned about the future of the planet, with 39% of children polled in the UK identifying the environment as one of their main concerns for the future.
Generation Earthshot informs this interest and encourages students and their teachers around the world to generate ideas for solving the world’s greatest environmental challenges.
It aims to unlock the potential of the next generation of inventors, innovators and leaders who will inherit our world and inspire them with enthusiasm to develop new solutions and protect our planet.
It comes just weeks before the UK is hosting COP26 in Glasgow from October 31 to November 12. The climate talks will bring together heads of state, climate experts and activists to agree on coordinated action to tackle climate change. These actions include placing more emphasis on climate and environmental education in school curricula around the world.
