The Duchess of Cambridge looked very on trend for her latest royal engagement. Kate was joined by her husband, Prince William, at Alexandra Park Sports Hub in Dennistoun, Scotland, to meet with Scouts from across the area and talk about the #PromiseToThePlanet campaign.

For the appearance, Kate wore a black turtleneck sweater paired with matching jeans, hiking boots, and a quilted khaki gilet – reminiscent of the quilted jackets that have won over the street style set this season. (Of course, practical outerwear is a royal staple, so this might be a chicken-and-egg situation.)

Kate also wore on-trend hiker boots by See by Chloe, and paired the look with a traditional Scouts scarf loosely tied around her neck and wore her hair styled in her signature glossy waves.

During the couple's visit, the pair took part in activities to demonstrate how Scouting helps equip young people with the tools to combat change. William and Kate joined Scouts in making wildflower seed bombs, cooking plant-based burgers, and learning bicycle maintenance.

The Cambridges have centered 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 prince encouraged the world's youth to stand up to climate change and embrace sustainability for the sake of the next generation.

'I want to say something to the young watching tonight,' he said onstage at Alexandra Palace. 'For too long, we haven't done enough to protect the planet for your future, the Earthshot is for you. In the next 10 years, we are going to act. We are going to find solutions to repair our planet. Please keep learning, keep demanding change, and don't give up hope. We will rise to these challenges.'
