The Duchess of Cambridge stepped out for her first ever joint engagement with Princess Anne on Wednesday (27 April) as the royal duo paid a visit to maternity healthcare organisations in London.

Kate and Anne were pictured arriving together at the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists and the Royal College of Midwives, of which they are both individually royal patrons.

The duchess looked as elegant as ever for the visit, wearing a stunning tailored midi dress in a beautiful neutral hue by Self-Portrait, the brand has confirmed to Red. The £400 tailored crepe dress is still available to buy and would make a chic outfit for choice for summer weddings, christenings and other events.

For the appearance, Kate gave it a subtle twist, swapping the brown leather belt it comes with for a neutral option, the brand explained. Given the famous Kate effect, we doubt it'll be around for long.

Kate paired the chic outfit with classic pearl jewellery, including a necklace from one of her go-to brands, Monica Vinader, which is also still available to shop now. Her dark hair was worn down in a signature blow-dry, while she completed the look with a co-ordinating pair of neutral heels and a clutch bag.

Princess Anne looked equally smart for the duo's joint appearance, opting for a teal coat dress worn with a matching blue printed scarf and simple back pumps.

During their visit, the royals were shown a demonstration of a new tool that monitors the safety of babies during labour.
