Kate Middleton in skinny jeans and off-duty jacket after outfit change

 The Duchess of Cambridge surprised with a quick outfit change on Tuesday, where she changed from her sophisticated camel coat to a chic dressed down look during her visit to the European Marine Energy Centre on day five of her week-long trip to Scotland on Tuesday.

To mark their first official trip to Orkney, The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge set out to formally open the Balfour Hospital in Kirkwall. It opened its doors in 2019 and replaced the old hospital, which had served the community for 90 years.

Stunning in a pair of tight-fitting skinny jeans paired with her Seeland Woodcock Advanced Jacket, the Duchess remained elegant despite swapping her usual dress and heels for jeans and brown boots.

In true regal style, the royal wore an elegant pie crust blouse beneath her jacket – channelling Princess Diana who was a true fan of the statement collar.

Kate wore her hair in a half-up, half-down style and kept her makeup natural, sporting a black eyeliner and a delicate floral face mask to complete her look.

The Duchess, who continues to advocate strongly for NHS staff, accessorized the elegant look with Flora Drop Earrings from Hamilton & Inches and looked absolutely stunning for the engagement.

It's not the first time the Duchess has sported the elegant drop earrings. On Monday, both Kate and William appeared at a leading social care charity, where they met with workers to hear about the vital support that they provide to those with complex needs, including addiction and mental health challenges, where Kate was first seen wearing the pair.
