A night after shining in jewels at a Buckingham Palace diplomatic reception, Kate Middleton made it to Manchester, England, for royal duties on Wednesday.

Dressed in a pair of black Tod’s pumps and a checkered L.K. Bennett coat, the Duchess of Cambridge and her husband, Prince William, visited schoolchildren at the 2017 Children’s Global Media Summit. The simple block heels also paired nicely with Middleton’s black Mulberry Bayswater clutch and the elegant red Goat tunic dress she wore underneath her coat.

Both L.K. Bennett and Goat are frequent brand staples in Middleton’s wardrobe. She often wears these British high-street labels on royal appearances.

Pregnant with her third child, Middleton showed off just the slightest baby bump as she posed for pictures at the summit, which was held to draw attention to children’s mental health. As her husband gave a speech, Middleton chatted with primary school students and listened to presentations on new kids’ TV programming. The couple also led kids in several group discussions about speaking up when it comes to mental health issues.
