    Kate Middleton styled out the wintery conditions in London today as she visited the Place2Be charity in Canary Wharf.

    Pictured greeting children and staff as she arrived, the Duchess of Cambridge managed to avoid her own Marilyn Monroe moment as a gust of wind caught her Orla Kiely skirt.

    Looking to the British designer for a second day, she teamed the pretty pleated skirt with a matching Max Mara jacket and blue suede accessories.

    Keeping any hair-in-face moments under control, she opted for a trusted half-up hairdo and grey smokey shadow.

    A patron for the Place2Be charity since April 2013, Kate is attending a ‘Resilience and Emotional Strength in Schools Forum, following yesterday’s visit to the Only Connect offices with Prince William.

    The new mum will meet head teachers to discuss issues such as cyber bullying and increasing emotional strength in young students.

    Showing support for another cause close to her heart, Kate looked in good spirits as she received a bunch of flowers for a schoolgirl.
