    Kate Middleton gave us all the style inspiration we needed over the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee weekend, and the Duchess of Cambridge has done it again. The royal stepped out in the pink blazer of dreams on Thursday, and we want in.

    The single-breasted blazer by Alexander McQueen (one of Kate’s favourite fashion brands), made an appearance for an important occasion. The Duchess attended the government roundtable to mark the release of new research from the Royal Foundation Centre for Early Childhood.

    Kate spoke on the importance of early child development and its links to mental health. The Duchess was joined by the likes of Health Secretary, Sajid Javid, and the Minister for Families, Will Quince, during the talk.

    To finish off her pink ensemble, Kate added a plain white tee and a pair of matching suit trousers, also by Alexander McQueen. She accessorised with a delicate diamond necklace and drop earrings, both from Mappin & Webb.
