The Princess of Wales stepped out for a solo engagement this afternoon. Kate was all smiles as she headed to Guildford, in Surrey, to meet members of the staff working at the Maternity Unit at Royal Surrey County Hospital.
The beaming royal donned a stunning yellow dress by Karen Millen with short sleeves and a pleated skirt.
She completed her look with a pair of dark blue suede heels and a clutch bag.
At the Unit, Kate met members of the Jasmine Team, which provides help to women experiencing mental health issues during their pregnancies or the initial post-natal period.
The work these staff members carry out is particularly important as approximately one in five women in the UK are reported to struggle with their mental wellbeing whilst expecting their babies or in the first years after giving birth.
The Princess of Wales, who donned a face mask while walking through the corridors of the hospital, also spent time in the hospital’s Special Care Baby Unit (SCBU), which provides specialist neonatal care for premature babies.
This engagement included an emotional meeting with a family who has previously been supported by this Unit.
This visit is the first carried out solo by Kate since Prince William was created Prince of Wales by his father King Charles III.
Together, the 40-year-olds decided to carry out their first visit following the end of the period of royal mourning to Wales to strengthen their bond with the nation.
Earlier today, the Prince of Wales visited alone St George’s Park as the President of the Football Association.
There, he marked the centre’s 10th anniversary and spoke to young footballers and para-footballers taking part in a training session.
The Aston Villa fan was spotted stopping in its track as he saw young players of his favourite team.
During this engagement, he also chat with England manager Gareth Southgate.
