A St James's Palace spokesman said:
'It was a regular meeting for the Duchess, doing things behind the scenes with her charities, children's palliative care being one of her main concerns.'
The Palace has been thinking about how to record the work Kate does behind the scenes for sometime. In the past number of days the Duchess has been visiting potential new charities, however Aides do not want this recorded in the Court Circular because it would reveal which causes the Duchess plans to lend her patronage to. It is clear that Kate is indeed working behind the scenes with her charities and I think it will be more closely documented in the future. We should hear news on Kate's chosen patronages very shortly.
I've been enjoying seeing Kate's designers' Fall 2013 Collections at fashion weeks and today we wrap it up with a look at several of Kate's favourites beginning with Erdem.
Kate looked lovely in her MaxMara wrap dress on Tuesday's visit to Hope House and no one was more pleased to see Kate in the garment than the Maramotti family behind the label. U.S. brand ambassador Maria Guilia Maramotti, who is the granddaughter of MaxMara founder Achille Maramotti said:
'To see a style icon wearing a MaxMara dress so beautifully makes me feel so proud. Catherine represents everything the MaxMara woman stands for: She is beautiful, full of energy and has such a natural elegance that comes from her consistent style. She does not follow trends, yet she is well aware of them; and the trends she does pick up on are always consistent with her timeless style. Is there anything more royal than that? Divine, Indeed!'
Unfortunately, the grey print dress is sold out, so let's take a look at a few alternatives.
The L.K. Bennett Lizzie Jersey Printed Wrap Dress is a beautiful piece and features three quarter sleeves, tie belt to cinch in the waist and wrap V-neckline. It is currently reduced from £145 to £75 and is available in an array of colours. A printed wrap dress can take one from desk to dinner and is very much a wardrobe staple.
Complete the look with a pair of black pumps and pearls :)
