This morning, the Duchess of Cambridge braved the rain on a visit to Maurice Wohl Clinical Neuroscience Institute at Kings College in London.

And her second royal engagement of the week, further proved the 36-year-old’s thrifty sense of style.

For the occasion, Kate Middleton donned a £195 Seraphine cashmere coat which she first wore back in 2015 while pregnant with Princess Charlotte.

And she teamed the collarless number with a £65 floral dress by the same maternity brand, which she has recycled three times in total.

Conspiracy theorists may be under the impression that the Duchess of Cambridge is trying to tell us something. Today marks the second time the royal has donned all-blue this week.

Could the nation be set to welcome another male heir to the throne?

Later in the afternoon, the 36-year-old visited Bethlem Royal Hospital to meet staff on a specialist NHS unit which cares for mothers with mental health problems.

The facility is a key component in the medical centre’s efforts to find new treatments for patients suffering from conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease, schizophrenia and epilepsy.

The Duchess of Cambridge’s most recent royal engagements follow in the wake of her latest initiative, Mentally Healthy Schools, designed to help teachers and children speak openly about mental health issues from anxiety to coping with bereavement.

And after kick-starting  Heads Together‘s latest campaign at Roe Green Primary School yesterday, the royal emphasised the importance of combatting mental health stigmas in a candid speech.

“I see time and time again that there is so much to be gained from talking of mental health and taking the mental health of our children as seriously as we do their physical health,” the Duchess of Cambridge said. “When we intervene early in life, we help avoid problems that are much more challenging to address in adulthood.”
