Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge has wowed in a vibrant pink ensemble as reports emerge that she will host a rare royal TV event over Christmas.
The royal mum-of-three stepped out an eye-catching fuchsia coat from Hobbs and matching turtle-neck sweater, which she paired with cropped trousers and navy pumps.
Her long hair was styled into elegant waves as she headed to Nower Hill High School in Harrow, London, to chat with pupils there.
The conversation centred on how the students will one day help shape the next generation of children, tying into Kate's work on the early years.
The subject has been something of a royal passion project for the duchess, who has been spearheading efforts in early years research and advocacy for a decade now.

She also gave students a peek into her own experiences as a mum, sharing with them how babies develop from watching the people around them.
"The one thing you learn is that your babies are watching you all the time, so ideally you are showing the children what to do," she explained to the children.
"They learn from you, good and bad things. So if you can show them how to eat, say, with a knife and fork, then they will start to pick it up."

Her visit comes at the same time as reports that the much-loved duchess will host a special TV Christmas concert next month.
The special will be recorded at Westminster Abbey with Kate front and centre for the festive occasion, which is set to air on ITV.
According to The Sun, the special was originally going to air on the BBC, but was pulled from the network after palace upset over a recent royal documentary.
The Princes and the Press is a two-part documentary that examines Prince William and Prince Harry's relationship with the British media and aired on the BBC.
The outlet claimed that the royal family were left "furious" by the special, which alleged that William briefed against his brother and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex.
With that in mind, the decision was reportedly made to move the broadcast of the new royal Christmas special to ITV.
"Naturally most royal programming goes automatically to the BBC as the national broadcaster. Now it looks like they will work more with ITV in the future," an ITV source told the outlet.
"It was all arranged to be on BBC1 but it was switched in the last few days because of the terrible row over the documentary."
