Kate Middleton Picked a Persimmon Knit Dress for Her First Solo Outing of the Year

Kate Middleton cannot be bothered with all the gossip as a result of Prince Harry’s wildly explosive memoir Spare, which was released last week. On Wednesday, January 18, the 41-year-old went about her first solo outing of 2023—a true professional.

The Princess of Wales, sans her husband, the Prince of Wales, dropped by Foxcubs Nursery in Luton, which focuses on learning through play. According to People, Foxcubs is a free childcare and early education center for children, and Middleton spent time with the children at the sand table. She also spoke with both teachers and parents about the importance of early childhood education.

For the outing, Middleton wore a long-sleeve orangey-red ribbed turtleneck dress. She wore a black belt with gold hardware and paired the look with tall black boots. Over the dress, she wore a wool camel coat. Her hair was softly curled, and ridiculously shiny as always.

In 2021, Kate Middleton made it her mission to emphasize the significance of early education and launched the Royal Foundation Centre for Early Childhood to “raise awareness of why the first five years of life are just so important for our future life outcomes, and what we can do as a society to embrace this golden opportunity to create a happier, more mentally healthy, more nurturing society.”
