Duchess Catherine's busy week just got even busier, as her secret outing in London is revealed

It comes after several high profile engagements within the past seven days.

We don't doubt for a moment that Duchess Catherine is a powerhouse in her own right - a mother to three, a working royal and an influencer to the masses, there's no denying she's a force to be reckoned with.
And even after a whirlwind week of engagements (with some seriously high profile people, might we add), she's still going strong.
On Tuesday this week, the Duchess paid a visit to the University of Derby's campus, where she spoke to students about their mental health ahead of World Mental Health Day.
Wearing a stunning Massimo Dutti checkered coat, a light blue cashmere sweater and black ankle-grazer trousers, Kate looked fresh, chic and oh-so-on-point for the engagement.
It wasn't a short day either - she made her way around the grassy outdoor campus before visiting the nursing school and speaking to the students there about how COVID-19 has impacted their lives.

Not a day later, Kate was pictured again attending an official engagement at Buckingham Palace, where she and husband William hosted the Ukranian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy and his wife Оlena.
This time wearing a beautiful cornflower blue long-sleeve dress, the royal was radiant as ever as she and the future King chatted to the high-profile couple.

We also shouldn't forget another rather exciting event that fell in the Duchess' calendar within the last fortnight - a casual visit from the world's favourite documentary maker Sir David Attenborough.
The family welcomed the British naturalist David into their London home Kensington Palace in late September after a day at school for Wills and Kate's two eldest children, Prince George, seven, and Princess Charlotte, five.

So with that said, there's no denying Kate has been keeping very busy.
Which is why we're all the more impressed to learn there was another engagement slipped into her diary this week - though this one was kept under wraps.
According to the Court Circular, the Duchess attended a meeting with Fiona McWilliams, who is the Executive Director of Development at the Natural History Museum.
While details of the meeting are not yet known, it certainly seems as though there's something in the works between the royal and the iconic London institution.
We'll certainly be staying tuned - watch this space...
