As the royal patron of The Art Room, Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge made her first solo public engagement on Tuesday to support an initiative which encourages confidence in disadvantaged children.

She was cheered on by the crowds at the Rose Hill Primary School in Oxford, England, wearing an Orla Kiely ‘Birdie’ shirt dress.

The walnut-wool long-sleeve jacquard dress with a button-down front and belt accenting the waist was teamed with brown tights and Aquatalia by Marvin K ‘Royal’ weatherproof booties, which are very appropriately named.

A black clutch and Kiki McDonough ‘Grace’ earrings completed her look.
