The Duchess of Cambridge is headed back to school—after a fashion. Earlier today, Kate Middleton stepped out in support of one of her favorite causes, education, with a visit to Nower High School in Harrow. During her stop-in, the duchess sat in on a science class, where students were studying neuroscience. During the class, the students reviewed a study from Oxford University which emphasized the importance of early childhood development.

Kate told the class, "I completely found it interesting," according to People. "It's a real passion of mine. Learning about babies' brains, about how our adult brains develop and how our early childhood influences the adults we become."

For the occasion, Kate donned a matched turtleneck and overcoat in a lush, jewel-like shade of fuchsia. She offset the vivid hue with a more subdued pair of black pants and pumps.

Early learning is an issue close to the royal's heart; this summer she launched The Royal Foundation Centre for Early Childhood, which emphasizes the importance of the early childhood years when it comes to educational development as well as long-term wellness.

Per a release from Kensington Palace, "Over the last ten years, Her Royal Highness has spent time looking into how challenges in later life such as addiction, family breakdown, poor mental health, suicide and homelessness can have their roots in the earliest years of someone’s life. Through her work with The Royal Foundation Centre for Early Childhood, she is aiming to highlight how what we experience in early childhood shapes the developing brain, which is why positive relationships, environments and experiences during this period are so crucial."
