After four months of maternity leave (save for a July 26th visit to Portsmouth with the Duke of Cambridge), the Duchess of Cambridge visited the Anna Freud Centre in London, where she learned about how the charity is working to improve young people’s mental health care.
Freud, the sixth child of Sigmund Freud, founded the center in 1952. Today, Catherine toured the the King’s Cross site for the charity’s planned Community Campus.
For her first solo engagement since Princess Charlotte‘s birth, Catherine wore a long-sleeve houndstooth belted shirt dress from Ralph Lauren’s Black Label ($1,595). Her Royal Highness accessorized with freshwater pearl drop earrings, a black clutch and black court shoes.
My friend at What Kate Wore has some of the best and most helpful readers, so credit must go to them for the specifics on Catherine’s accessories (sunnies not included, unfortunately).
A big thanks to WKW “eagle eye” Sara for helping me ID Catherine’s shoes and earrings:
- Stuart Weitzman’s “Power Pumps.”
- Annoushka’s freshwater pearl drop earrings on KiKi McDonough hooks (these women are precise).
- Mulberry Bayswater clutch in Christchurch.
- Cartier watch, first worn by Catherine in February 2014.
According to the Daily Mail, Catherine also stopped by The Family School, a charity sponsored by the Anna Freud Center that assists children suffering from behavioral and emotional issues.
