The Duchess of Cambridge wore a stunning full-length coat in blue tartan as she attended a drive-in cinema screening with Prince William.

The event was for NHS workers who were invited to watch a movie at a special drive-in theatre evening, to thank them for all their hard work.

Kate's stunning coat is from British brand Holland Cooper, known as the Full Length Marlborough Trench Coat, which she wore in Heather Tartan.

Prince William and Kate paid tribute to the Duke of Edinburgh during the event by driving the late Duke’s much-loved vehicle to the screening.

A post on the Royal Family Instagram account explained that the royal couple received “special permission from the Queen” to use Prince Philip’s modified 1966 Land Rover.

At the event, the Duchess addressed the audience and thanked them for their efforts, as she and the Duke are patrons of NHS charities.

“We wanted to thank you for the extraordinary dedication, commitment and personal sacrifice you have shown in supporting our communities through this pandemic,” she said.

The Duchess then introduced the film Cruella (a prequel to 101 Dalmatians starring Emma Stone and Emma Thompson); “We invite you to grab your popcorn, cuddle up under your blankets and be transported to 1970s Britain for an evening of much-deserved fun, drama, glamour and escapism!”

The event took place in the ground of the Palace of Holyroodhouse, the Royal Family’s Scottish residence in Edinburgh.

Videos and photographs of the Duke and Duchess arriving at the screening and speaking with NHS workers were shared to the official social media accounts for both the Royal Family and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
