Prince William and Kate Middleton kicked off their two-day visit to Scotland on Wednesday with a day of outings focused on mental health in Port Glasgow.

For their first stop in Glasgow, William and Middleton spent the morning with a group of young children taking part in a groundbreaking program to aid their wellbeing. The royal couple sat in on a Roots of Empathy session at St. John’s Primary School. Roots of Empathy is a classroom program where infants are taken to visit elementary schools on a regular basis, in order to allow the schoolchildren to observe the infants’ development and emotions.

Middleton pulled out another all-blue ensemble one day after stepping out in a speckled coat dress by Michael Kors Collection. The Duchess of Cambridge looked classy and chic in an almost-length navy blue coat by Catherine Walker.

She paired the outwear with a light blue Ceffin blouse. The long-sleeve garment had a mock neckline and pleats on the bodice. Middleton completed her look with matching belted navy blue pants. She styled her hair soft waves and touted her essentials in a small square handbag.

The glamorous mother-of-three rounded out her look with black pointed-toe pumps. The suede silhouette offered a refined and polished finish to her look.

For their second stop of the day, the couple visited the Wheatley Group — Scotland’s leading housing, care and property-management group tackling homelessness and supporting vulnerable tenants during the cost of living crisis. Over the past two years, they’ve provided more than 5,000 homes to homeless people across Scotland.
