The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are currently on a mini royal tour of Scotland.

Yesterday was a busy day of engagements for the couple – who are known as the Earl and Countess of Strathearn in Scotland – as they visited the archipelago of Orkney off the north-west coast for the first time.

While on Orkney they opened a hospital, enjoyed a cup of tea with a local family, visited the European Marine Energy Centre to learn how they are working to tackle climate change and chatted with local schoolchildren who had turned out to welcome them.

Catherine opted for two very different outfits for the occasion, both featuring a mix of wardrobe staples she's worn before and new buys, including several from Scottish labels.

The Duchess of Cambridge recycled her Massimo Dutti cashmere camel coat for a smart tonal look at the hospital.

She added a pair of wide-leg tailored trousers, a matching rib knit top by Temperley London and a new suede clutch bag and heeled pumps by Emmy London, according to royal fashion authority What Kate Wore. Her Strathearn tartan scarf came courtesy of the Scottish Tartans Authority.

A quick change into a more casual ensemble and the Cambridges headed out to sea.

This time around the Duchess kept cosy in her Seeland Jacket (a newish purchase she first wore back in April) and See By Chloe lace-up boots, but we were more taken by her new frilled collar blouse.

A closer look reveals its the Dobby Spot Cotton Blouse by Scottish label Brora, £119, which is still in stock online in sizes 10-14.

Kate wore the blouse under a jumper to elevate jeans, but it would work just as well with wide-leg trousers or a black midi skirt.

In fact, the Duchess of Cambridge is a big fan of a statement blouse for adding polish to everyday items. Most recently she's been stocking up on Boden's brilliant spring selection for Zoom engagements.
