Princess Kate looks chic in black and grey ensemble – but her hair is the star of the show

Kate, Princess of Wales donned a monotone grey and black outfit today during a visit to the We Are Farming Minds charity at Kings Pitt Farm.

The 42-year-old looked chic and professional in a charcoal grey blazer, black trousers, and a simple black top.

With minimal accessories or pops of colour, the eye was drawn straight to Kate’s new hairstyle.

She wore her lengthy brunette locks in her trademark loose waves with trendy curtain-style bangs perfectly swept backwards to frame her face.

The look is in keeping with the Princess of Wales’s recent style, which has seen her swap long, flowing summer dresses for more autumnal business looks.

The mother-of-three even traded her go-to espadrille wedges and stilettos for some ankle boots for the occasion.

Kate teamed the leather shoes with skin-tight black trousers and a long-line, fitted blazer to create an understated look.

Her jacket is known as the Maje Vincio Blazer, which can be found on Editorialist for $525 (£422).

On the website, the description reads: “Classic check plaid covers this double-breasted tailored blazer. Notch lapels Bracelet sleeves with button cuffs Double-breasted button front Chest welt pocket Waist flap pockets.”

The Princess donned her See by Chloe Leather-trimmed Suede Ankle boots, which boast tonal leather trims and logo-embossed heel tabs.

Unlike Kate’s jacket, these are an old style which she has worn on countless occasions in the past.

Kate accessorised lightly with an oversized pendant necklace in a light shade of gold to contrast her plain black top.

The accessory worn by the royal today was the Daniella Draper Personalised Gold Midnight Moon Necklace.

Its intricate design includes a nine-carat gold moon and sparkly diamond charm which is engraved with the initials of the Duchess’s three children – a G, a C and an L.

It appeared as though Kate ditched the earrings on this occasion, though she was spotted wearing a chunky watch, her wedding, and engagement ring.
