The Duchess of Cambridge looked perfectly polished as she arrived at a south London children’s centre this morning.
Kate, 37, is visiting the Henry Fawcett Centre in Kennington, where she will learn more about the work being done to support children and their families.
The royal mixed high street and high end for the outing, pairing a new £790 purple pussy bow blouse by Gucci with a favourite pair of £130 high waist trousers by Jigsaw.
The look is something of a fashion risk for the royal, who typically favours mid-length dresses for public appearances.

It’s proving to be a busy week for the Duchess of Cambridge.
For an engagement in London today, she lived up to her stylish reputation, opting for a stunning Gucci blouse, trousers by Jigsaw and an Aspinal of London bag.
Cut from fluid silk crepe, the former incorporates a loose silhouette and pussybow tie, creating a timeless aesthetic that would make a welcome addition to any closet. Plus, the purple hue is bound to add a welcome pop of color to the sea of black and navy we’re currently donning through the colder months!
The best thing about this design is its versatility. As Kate shows, it effortlessly teams with high-waisted trousers, while working equally well with jeans and skirts of varying lengths.

She teamed the new wardrobe purchase with a pair of high waist black trousers by Jigsaw that she previously wore on a visit to Cyprus in December last year.
The royal wore her long brunette locks blown out and accessorised with a simple pair of drop earrings and an elegant handbag.
LEAP was set up by A Better Start, a major funding initiative from The National Lottery Community Fund, and is seeking to test new ways of making support services for families stronger.
Her Royal Highness will join parents and their toddlers taking part in sessions called ‘Circle of Security’ and ‘Together Time’, to see different examples of what is available as part of the programme.
Circle of Security is one of two universal programmes that is offered to all parents with children of 0 to 4 years. It helps parents and care givers better understand their child’s emotions, as well as supporting their child’s ability to successfully manage their own emotions and enhance the development of their child’s self-esteem.
Together Time supports attachment and bonding between parents and infants. The group provides time and space for parents to enjoy being with their babies or toddlers and includes singing, use of child led play and interaction. The session is designed to support parents’ ability to understand their child’s cues, feel more confident in their parenting and strengthen their relationship with their child.
