The Duchess of Cambridge has arrived at the Victoria and Albert (V&A) Museum to officially open a new entrance, courtyard and exhibition gallery on Exhibition Road.
Kate’s designer dress costs £1,790 on Net-a-Porter.
The grosgrain-trimmed cotton-blend tweed mini has a monochrome pattern with red lining.
With a hemline that cuts off above the knee, the outfit showed off the Duchess’s long slim legs.
Kate paired her dress with black round toe high heels and a bright red clutch bag.
The mum-of-two wore her hair down for the occasion, with a clip sweeping her tresses back off her face.
Kate was captured greeting onlookers and accepted flowers from a young girl in a bright yellow dress.
The Duchess, who took a degree in the History of Art, toured the V&A Exhibition Road Quarter’s new spaces, designed by British architect Amanda Levete and her practice AL_A.
She also visited The Sackler Courtyard where she unveiled a commemorative plaque to officially mark the opening of the V&A Exhibition Road Quarter.
The new entrance will reconnect the V&A with its neighbouring museums and institutions founded on the vision of Albertopolis, following the Great Exhibition of 1851.
Kate, who is a patron of the National Portrait Gallery, attended a short reception in the Blavatnik Hall to meet guests involved in the project.
