The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge arrived in a rather windy South Wales on Tuesday afternoon for a day of engagements.

The royal couple started off their day by boarding a lifeboat at Swansea Bay to speak to crew members at The Mumbles Lifeboat Station about their rescue services.

Kate wrapped up warm for the visit in a long military-inspired navy coat by British high street brand Hobbs.

The Bianca Maxi Coat, which features burnished crested buttons is currently on sale, down from £349 to £259.

However, the timeless item of outerwear is already proving to be popular and is only available in a few sizes online at Hobbs and John Lewis.

The 38-year-old contrasted the blue coat with a bold red knitted midi dress from Zara.

The dress is, however, old season and no longer available to purchase.

Kate seems to be a firm fan of frocks from the affordable high street store at the moment. The mum-of-three wore a black and white checked number by the brand whilst in Bradford last month.

The statement garment was complimented with Valentine’s Day-ready red accessories, including a Mulberry bag and heart-adorned scarf by London-based brand Beulah.

The blush and red printed scarf is available to purchase for £120, with 10% of the profits going towards helping modern day slavery.

Kate finished off the look with a pair of black knee-high boots by Stuart Weitzman.

The couple’s afternoon will also see them meet with workers and trade unions at Tata Steel. As well as, visit Bulldogs Development Centre in Port Talbot, a fitness centre for young people who may struggle with mental health issues.
