Kate Middleton showed her colours as an art history graduate, as she donned a painterly outfit for the unveiling of her first joint portrait with husband Prince William.

The couple visited the University of Cambridge's Fitzwilliam Museum where the portrait, which was commissioned in 2021 as a gift to Cambridgeshire, was revealed to the public for the first time.

Painted by award-winning British portrait artist Jamie Coreth, the portrait celebrates the 10 year anniversary of William and Kate receiving their titles, and features an outfit fashion fans will recognise from the Duchess's wardrobe.

In the painting, Kate wears the emerald green shimmering Falconetti gown by The Vampire's Wife that she wore while visiting Dublin in 2020.

She paired the striking metallic gown with a new pair of matching green satin Manolo Blahnik Satin Hangisi Pumps, and wore two pieces of jewellery once owned by Princess Diana – the Collingwood Pearl Drop Earrings and the Nigel Milne 3-Strand Pearl Bracelet.

She also wore the Cambridge Brooch for the first time, a pearl and diamond cluster brooch with a pearl drop pendant that detaches.

The portrait will be on display at the University of Cambridge's Fitzwilliam Museum for three years, and then shown at different community spaces and galleries across Cambridgeshire. It will also be loaned to the National Portrait Gallery for a short time in 2023 to mark the Gallery's reopening.

After this, the couple went on a series of engagements starting with the EACH (East Anglia's Children's Hospices) Milton location, where they met child and families who are using the service. Kate also took part in an art therapy session with some of the children.

After that, they visited Jimmy's Cambridge, an organisation helping people who are homeless, where they spoke to residents about their journeys and the organisation's trial of modular homes.

Finally, they attended the first-ever Cambridgeshire County Day, which was held to mark the Queen's Platinum Jubilee and to raise money for the community. While here, they sampled artisan produce and had a go kicking a ball around.

For the day of engagements, Kate wore a stunning pastel outfit which was perfect for the early summer weather.

She chose the Madison style dress by LK Bennett in a delicate lilac and pink flecked motif that resembles a pointillism painting, so ideal for the unveiling of her portrait. The chiffon dress features a slightly flowy A-line silhouette, with a high neckline and flowing sleeves that come down to the elbow.

She paired this with a soft baby blue longline coat that she wore open, and added the Emmy London Rebecca pumps in the Riviera colourway, a dusty blue shade, and the brand's Natasha Clutch in the same colour.

Later in the day, she changed into her Castañer Carina wedge espadrilles in a classic soft tan shade. For some sparkle she wore a pair of aquamarine and diamond earrings that matched the blue shades in her outfit.

Her hair was styled into soft and voluminous curls, while her makeup was fresh and rosy, with a pink lip and a swirl of blush.
