It's been a decidedly busy day for royal watchers with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle carrying out their first official royal engagements in Nottingham. Meanwhile back in London, Duchess Kate was photographed at King's Cross Station this morning.

It is unknown exactly where Kate was travelling, though I would hazard a guess she may have been heading to Anmer Hall. Following a two-day official visit to Finland, Prince William returned to Royal Air Force Marham in Norfolk, as noted by Cepe. Kate may still be experiencing pregnancy sickness, so railway may be an easier means of travelling longer distances.
The Cambridges have long been fans of travelling by train, it also makes sense logistically as the train journey is under two hours whilst driving is close to three. With Prince George's school schedule I expect they are spending as many weekends at their country retreat as possible.
Speaking of Prince William's trip to Finland, if you haven't already seen it, the moment of the visit came when he handed Prince George's Christmas list to Santa Claus. Very sweetly, little George has just one request this year: a police car. I have no doubt Santa will be more than happy to oblige and he'll find one under the tree.
It's always fun to see Kate's "off duty" style. For the train journey she sported her new ZARA Coat (Kate was photographed on Wednesday leaving Kensington Palace wearing it. You can view images on the Mail Online). The $169 Checked Coat is a very wearable day coat. I think it could work very well for engagements too.
Kate also wore her Iris & Ink Grace Sweater - first seen during her engagement with the Scouts in King's Lynn last year. Made in Italy, the light grey sweater is described as "100% cashmere, slips on, turtleneck, ribbed trims".
An updated version of the Grace sweater is now available in grey and pink at the Outnet retailing for £125.
Kate completed the look with jeans. her Mulberry bag and chic ankle boots.
We have news of an unannounced engagement for Kate on Wednesday afternoon. According to the Court Circular, the Duchess of Cambridge convened a roundtable meeting at Kensington Palace with experts in positive parenting and early years support. No images from the meeting were released. Early years support is an area of particular interest for Kate.
When is Kate's next engagement? On Wednesday, 6 December, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will attend the Children's Global Media Summit at the Manchester Central Convention Complex. The Duke of Cambridge will give the key note speech at the summit, which brings together creatives, technology innovators, policymakers, executives and thought leaders from around the globe to inform and redesign the future of media for this generation and explore the impact that digital technology will have in children’s futures. On arrival at the Manchester Central Convention Complex, the Duke and Duchess will have the chance to meet some of the international delegates who will speak at the conference. The Duchess will then join a forum hosted by Sesame Street's Workshop, the charitable foundation of the famous children's TV show, on research commissioned into kindness – a method used to help very young children express issues regarding emotional wellbeing.
We'll also be keeping an eye out for a possible tiara appearance should the Cambridges attend this year's annual Diplomatic Reception. It takes place in early December, making a night next week a strong possibility.
Finally, the Duchess visited the fascinating Foundling Museum on Tuesday wearing a new Kate Spade dress.
The Diamond Pleated Shirtdress from the Resort 2018 Collection was released on the Kate Spade website earlier today. The $398 piece is described: "Diamonds are a girl's best friend in any form. This patterned shirtdress has a pleated silhouette and feminine tie-neck that knots into a dramatic bow."
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
