The brilliant Kate Middleton was in high spirits today when she joined Prince William to celebrate St. David’s Day with a visit to Wales.
The 40-year-old Duchess of Cambridge wore an all-green outfit while visiting Abergavenny Market with the Duke, 39, where the couple will learn how important local suppliers are to rural communities.
The mother of three chose to wear her Sportmax forest green coat for £ 940 with a matching polo neckline, as well as black skinny jeans for the occasion.
In a touching mood for her decade of duty to the royal family, Kate also finished her outfit with her Aquatalia Rouge boots, which she wore for the first time for her first official engagement in 2011.
It was a quick change of costume for the royal, who was in his natural state earlier today when he met a group of charming goats while the couple visited a farm in Wales.
Kate wore a recycled Seeland khaki jacket and a red scarf when she joined Duke at Pant Farm; a goat farm near Abergaveny that has been supplying milk to a local cheese producer for nearly 20 years.
She combined her outfit with a simple pair of black jeans and completed her look with her £ 170 boots from the celebrity’s favorite brand Blundstone. Meanwhile, William wore navy blue pants, a green jumper, and a matching light blue coat for the occasion.
The royal couple is visiting Wales to learn about the importance of the agricultural industry for the rural population and how community organizations support young people while celebrating the region’s history.

They will also have the opportunity to take part in some of the activities of the center, which on this day of St. David include the preparation of Welsh cakes.
While the decline of the mining industry has led to some of the challenges it faces today, Blaenavon’s history is an important part of its identity, with parts of the city and its surroundings recognized as World Heritage Sites in 2000, an example of how 18 19th century – The 19th century iron and coal industry in Wales led to the Industrial Revolution.
The heritage site, in partnership with Blaenavon Hwb, uses the power of culture to empower young people and helps promote the region’s rich history through the World Heritage Ambassadors program.
