Kate Middleton rocked dressy chic once again today as she arrived in Scotland alongside Prince William, where the couple are visiting rural communities.
The Prince and Princess of Wales, known as the Duke and Duchess of Rothesay during their visit to Scotland, are spending the day in Burghead, Moray and Inverness.
As she stepped out of the car during their first stop at the Outfit Moray charity which provides outdoor learning programs for young people, the princess, 41, radiated elegance in a printed khaki padded jacket tartan.
She layered the jacket over a black turtleneck, black trumpet jeans and sturdy boots, and styled her thick brunette locks in loose waves.
Meanwhile, Prince William, also 41, looked dapper in a khaki jacket and navy pants.

The couple’s visit today has three destinations; Outfit Moray, Brodieshill Farm and mentoring charity DAY1.
Outfit Moray offers accessible and affordable outdoor learning workshops to local young people.
The aim of this work is to encourage the generation to get out, help them develop life skills and thus improve their mental and physical health.
The association particularly helps children aged eight to 18 who are vulnerable or from disadvantaged backgrounds. Since its inception in 2003, Outside Moray has worked with more than 16,000 young people.

Their Royal Highnesses, known as the Duke and Duchess of Rothesay in Scotland, visit Outfit Moray
Among the activities the association involves young people in are mountain biking, paddle sports, climbing, archery and bushcraft.
It also runs a number of programs at local schools, such as cycling training, bicycle maintenance and first aid classes.
Brodieshill Farm is a family farm where young farmers from Lower Speyside gathered to meet the Royal Family.
Representatives from Farmstrong Scotland are also speaking with Their Royal Highnesses about how the organizations are supporting the mental wellbeing of young people in Scotland’s rural communities – and local farmers in particular.
Lower Speyside Young Farmers caters for young people from all backgrounds, aged 14 to 29, across the region and provides opportunities for socialization and interaction in what can sometimes be an isolating environment.
The group recently took part in the ‘Are ewe OK’ campaign run by the Scottish Association of Young Farmer Clubs, which encourages its members to talk about mental health and break the stigma and taboos associated with it.
The couple’s third and final commitment of the day is to the DAY1 charity in Inverness, which provides mentoring, training, personal development and employability services to vulnerable young people.
The charity aims to equip its young people with the social and emotional skills needed to succeed in life through mentoring and personal development programs. These allow participants to develop their autonomy, their self-confidence and help them to identify their own interests by giving them a clear direction in their life.
The charity also owns and runs the social enterprise Inverness Kart Raceway, which serves as the site for its automotive skills apprenticeship programme.
