Kate Middleton and Prince William stopped by a local school in east London this morning to meet with educators and students, coinciding with the roll-out of the nation’s new Mentally Healthy Schools resources; the program encourages secondary schools to put mental health at the heart of their curriculum.

For the outing, the Duchess of Cambridge herself stood out from the crowd for more reason than one, popping in a bright pink look. The outfit teamed a what resembles a Max & Co hot pink coat over a $78 (65 euros) Boden scalloped top and Jigsaw’s $130 Sport Luxe trousers.

The smooth suede pumps featured a pointed-toe silhouette with a rounded vamp and a sturdy heel shape, resembling one of Middleton’s go-to designs from Emmy London. The label’s Josie pumps measure 3-inches in height and retail for $490 on the brand’s website.
