The Duchess of Cambridge appeared to pay tribute to NHS staff through her outfit by wearing a rainbow print blouse to present a Pride of Britain Award to hospital workers alongside Prince William last week.

The royal couple presented the award to NHS staff on behalf of the entire nation in order to recognise the amazing work of frontline workers during the ongoing battle with coronavirus.

Will and Kate made an appearance at London's St Bartholomew's hospital last week to record the special presentation, with the segment airing during the Pride of Britain Awards on ITV on Sunday evening (1 November).

Prince William thanked NHS workers on behalf of us all, saying: "We cannot thank you enough. On behalf of a grateful nation, it is a tremendous honour for Catherine and I to present a special recognition award to the army of dedicated NHS staff."

Kate added: "Through our conversations with frontline workers during the pandemic, we have been inspired by their stories of bravery and selflessness."

Both royals wore blue for occasion, perhaps in tribute to the NHS, with the Duchess opting for a navy trouser suit paired with a silk blouse by Lisou, which was emblazoned with a very fitting rainbow print.

The £250 Betty Blue Rainbow Print Silk Shirt boasts on-trend puffed sleeves and is still available to order online if you fancy emulating Kate's latest look.
