Kate Middleton wears fuchsia Alexander McQueen gown as she visits Cornwall school with Jill Biden

Kate Middleton was a vision in pink as she met with Dr Jill Biden at a school in Cornwall today to discuss female empowerment ahead of the G7 summit. 

The Duchess of Cambridge, 39, cut an elegant figure in the £1,125 fuschia midi dress from Alexander McQueen and carrying a £225 L.K. Bennett handbag as she arrived to meet the President’s wife at Connor Downs Academy this afternoon. 

The two chatted together as they walked into the school, with Dr Jill matching Kate in a white dress and wearing a bright pink Lagence Fashion blazer from her wardrobe.

The Duchess and Dr. Biden firstly visited the school’s Reception Class to join in with some classroom acitivites, before meeting with representatives from the early years sector to discuss the importance of childhood.

Kate wore her bouncy brunette locks styled in her signature side parting and opted for minimal makeup as she sported a simple smokey eye.    

Her fuschia pink dress, which is currently sold out online, is described as perfect for a ‘first date’. 

The silk dress, which was made in Italy, appears to have been slightly customised for the Duchess, with a longer hemline and a bold sixties style belt added.

The Duchess has long been a fan of Alexander McQueen, with the luxury house designing her iconic wedding gown and becoming a go-to of the royal since her marriage to Prince William in April 2011.

L.K. Bennett is also a firm high street favourite of the duchess, and the choice continued her trend of championing British brands over the past 18 months. 

During the engagement today, Dr Jill and Kate heard how the school’s pupils are supported through a bespoke Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) curriculum, which uses child-led teaching to help its pupils to develop as independent, confident and successful learners. 

They then led a roundtable discussion with a number of representatives from the early years sector who have been influential in The Duchess’ work in this space

They discussed why early childhood is so important to lifelong outcomes and what can be done to make a difference.

The royal has been wearing a host of pink outfits in recent months, with experts saying she was wearing the pretty ensembles after Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s bombshell Oprah interview to appear ‘lovable and convey kindness’.  

Kate sported a blush pussybow blouse during an appearance hours after her sister-in-law claimed the two women had a tearful confrontation days before the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s 2018 wedding.

Meanwhile she also donned a £65 pink jumper from Boden for her first in-person engagement of the year this spring.
