Kate Middleton is presented flowers during charity visit in London

Kate Middleton styles up Orla Kiely and Max Mara in London


Kate Middleton kept to her busy schedule in London today, as she joined staff and school children at the Place2Be charity in Canary Wharf.

Looking to Orla Kiely for the second day in a row, the Duchess of Cambridge opted for a knife pleated skirt, which she paired with a gorgeous Max Mara coat.

Managing to avoid having her own Marilyn Monroe moment as a gust of wind caught her designer ensemble, Kate looked in good spirits as she recieved flowers from a pupil.

Ensuring her blowdry didn't suffer the same fate as her clothes, she made a return to her trusted half-up style.

A patron for the Place2Be charity since April 2013, Kate joined head teachers at a ‘Resilience and Emotional Strength in Schools' Forum, following yesterday’s visit to the Only Connect offices with Prince William.

The new mum joined the charity for a discussion on issues inlcuding cyber bulling and increasing emotional strength in young students. Kate is also said to have extended the visit by a hour as she was enjoying herself so much.
