Much like the Queen, Kate Middleton is partial to a colourful outfit, and yesterday was no exception. The Duchess of Cambridge, hot off her appearance at the Eartshot Prize Awards, attended an event hosted by the Forward Trust in London.

She delivered a keynote speech to launch the charity's 'Taking Action on Addiction' campaign, which will work to improve awareness and understanding of addiction, its causes and scale in society to enable more people to ask for and receive help.

The royal stood out from the crowd in a chic red rollneck jumper by Ralph Lauren, which perfectly matched her pleated skirt by Christopher Kane. The latter is from the designer's AW20 collection and does come with a detachable crystal chain which Kate has opted to remove.

As for her accessories, Kate kept things muted, with tan leather court shoes and a matching handbag by designer label deMellier.

She wore her long locks in waves around her shoulders, and kept her jewellery to a minimum, wearing discreet hoop earrings as well as her engagement and wedding rings.

Should you wish to emulate her look, you'll need a healthy budget, but if you've already crossed that hurdle, you'll be pleased to hear the items are still available to buy now.

Penny grew up in France and studied languages and law at the Sorbonne Nouvelle University in Paris before moving to the UK for her MA in multimedia journalism at Bournemouth University. She moved to the UK permanently and has never looked back (though she does go back regularly to stock up on cheese and wine).

Although she's always loved fashion - she used to create scrapbooks of her favourite trends and looks, including Sienna Miller and Kate Moss' boho phase - her first job was at MoneySavingExpert.com, sourcing the best deals for everything from restaurants to designer sales.

However she quit after two years to follow her true passion, fashion journalism, and after many years of internships and freelance stints at magazines including Red, Cosmopolitan, Stylist and Good Housekeeping, landed her dream job as the Digital Fashion Editor at Marie Claire UK.

Her favourite part of the job is discovering new brands and meeting designers, and travelling the world to attend events and fashion shows. Seeing her first Chanel runway IRL at Paris Fashion Week was a true pinch-me moment.
