It's been a wild month for the royal family—you can catch up on all the Prince Harry and Meghan Markle drama here—but Kate Middleton is carrying on like normal. Today, the Duchess of Cambridge arrived in Cardiff, Wales to attend a class at the Ely and Careau Children's Centre and to speak with the parents about the services the space provides. For the visit, the Duchess of Cambridge chose to wear a black turtleneck top and a leopard print pleated skirt from Zara. She wore a pair of Ralph Lauren black boots underneath.

The look was dressy, but also casual enough that Kate could comfortably bend down while chatting with kids and parents. The skirt draped over her knees and pooled around the floor, though the Duchess paid no mind as she happily played with the children. For a finishing touch, she rocked a Massimo Dutti camel coat on top, which was a very Meghan Markle move. (Meghan loves her beige coats, too.) Though Kate's exact skirt is sold out, we found similar ones to shop, ahead.
