Kate Makes Two Stops in Oxford

The Duchess’s first stop of the day was to Rose Hill Primary School. She is a patron of The Art Room, which encourages confidence in disadvantaged children. Kate spent two hours in an art therapy class where she donned a black apron with the name ‘Miss Catherine’ embroidered on the front.

For her second engagement of the day, the Duchess visited Oxford Spires Academy, a secondary school which also has its own Art Room.

Kate looked glam in a long-sleeved, Birdie wool jacquard shirt dress by Irish designer Orla Kiely. She finished off her look with brown opaque tights, brown suede ‘Rouge’ Aquatalia by Marvin K. ankle boots ($398), and a brown envelope clutch. Kate kept her jewelry simple and wore her Kiki McDonough ‘Grace’ white topaz and diamond earrings (£695) as well as her gorgeous sapphire and diamond engagement ring.
