The Duchess of Cambridge nailed elegant evening-wear in a glamorous tailored blue coat dress, as she attended a reception to mark the opening of COP26 in Glasgow on Monday night (1 November).
Kate teamed her royal blue dress from Eponine London with a pair of navy blue heels, and wore her long hair in a chic updo as she spoke with key members of the Sustainable Markets Initiative, as well as the winners and finalists of the Duke of Cambridge's first Earthshot Prize Awards at the Clydeside Distiller.
Prince William was also in attendance, wearing a coordinating blue suit, and at one point during the evening, the duchess attempted to entice the duke to eat a tub of dead larvae – which, judging by his face in the below photo, he gracefully declined.
The COP26 summit is being held for world leaders to address the drastic changes that need to be made to make the world greener in order to curtail climate change and global warming.
The conference began on 31 October and will run for two weeks, finishing on 12 November. It was meant to take place in 2020 but was delayed due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Earlier in the day, the duke and duchess met with scouts from across the area and talk about the #PromiseToThePlanet campaign. Kate wore a black turtleneck sweater paired with matching jeans, on-trend hiking boots by See by Chloe, and a quilted khaki gilet – reminiscent of the quilted jackets that have been all over Instagram this season.
The Cambridges have focused on environmentalism and climate change as part of their royal agenda in recent weeks. William launched his annual initiative, The Earthshot Prize, which encourages the world's greatest minds to capture 'the best ideas to confront the urgent environmental problems facing the world'.
At its inaugural ceremony last month, the duke encouraged the world's youth to stand up to climate change and embrace sustainability for the sake of the next generation.
