This morning in London, Kate Middleton and Prince William visited the mental health charity Shout for the group’s Crisis Volunteer celebration event, where she met the staff and volunteers working behind the scenes
Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge wore a jacket by Smythe in the aptly named Prince of Wales check and a pair of eggplant-colored pants by British high street label Joseph. She pulled together the look with a pair of black suede Gianvito Rossi pumps with a very of-the-moment chunky block heel. The jacket, a fashion-forward update on a royal classic, retails for $795 while the shoes are $695.
All the labels worn today are from those tried and tested favorite brands in Kate’s repertoire.
During the event held at the Troubadour White City Theatre in West London, the royal couple learned more about the charity’s work. It provides vulnerable people immediate support via text messages.

Kate’s Prince of Wales check is certainly front and center right now. YNAP and Prince Charles’ Prince of Wales Foundation, have just launched The Modern Artisan Project focusing on developing the skills of a new generation of artisans in both the United Kingdom and Milan. It will culminate with a collection of men’s and women’s wear which will be designed in Italy and manufactured at Dumfries House in Scotland, the headquarters of The Foundation. It will be sold next year on Net-a-Porter, Mr Porter, Yoox and The Outnet. Additional reporting by Natalie Theodosi.
