The Duchess of Cambridge recycled a £285 beige Reiss blazer as she joined Prince William to meet with aid workers who have returned from the Ukraine at the Disasters Emergency Committee in London this morning.

Kate Middleton, 40, smiled as she arrived at the engagement in London alongside her husband the Duke, 39, earlier today, where they will learn more about the organisation’s ongoing appeal to support people affected by the conflict in Ukraine. 

The mother-of-three recycled her neutral-coloured £285 Reiss double breasted blazer, which features tailored simplicity with a soft finish, wide peak lapels and button fastenings, and paired the piece with navy trousers and a white t-shirt.

During their visit, the couple spoke with recently returned aid workers and, via a video call, with those on the ground in Ukraine to learn more about the organisation is helping to support and the human impact of the conflict. 

The conversations also touched on how events unfolding in Ukraine threaten to exacerbate existing humanitarian crises elsewhere in the world. 

Further showing their support, both William and Kate sported pins showcasing the blue and yellow of the Ukrainian flag underneath a white love heart, while the Duke donned a navy suit for the outing. 

It comes amid fresh frustration from the Royal Family after Prince Harry took potshots at the Firm in US TV interviews.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are carrying on as usual during the visit today, and appeared relaxed as they arrived at the engagement.

The mother-of-three swept her glossy brunette hair back from her face, completing her look with a subtle pink lipstick and bronzer.

The royal, who is known for her love of rewearing pieces and high street brands, also opted to wear her favourite pair of £550 earrings for the appearance. 

The Duchess was first snapped in the stunning yellow gold citrine pear drop earrings from Kiki McDonough in 2009, and they have become a favourite of hers over the past 12 years.  

During their visit, the royal couple were given a tour of the London headquarters of the Disasters Emergency Committee

Meanwhile Prince William appeared to make Kate and staff at the London headquarters laugh with a joke as he was given a tour of the facility today 

It’s not the first time the couple have offered support to the appeal from the DEC. 

In March, the Duchess appeared to fight back tears over the Ukraine crisis when visiting the Ukrainian Cultural Centre in London. 

The duke and duchess, who revealed their eldest children have been questioning them about the conflict, brought trays of homemade chocolate brownies and granola bars with them from Kensington Palace to give to the members of the Ukrainian community and volunteers they met.

At the time, they also spoke with Saleh Saeed, CEO of the Disasters Emergency Committee to learn more about the ongoing Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal and how best the UK public can continue to support Ukraine.

The Duchess, who previously told how her children had asked her about the conflict in Ukraine, beamed as she chatted with aid workers 

The royal couple appeared to listen carefully as the aid workers spoke of returning to the UK after travelling to Ukraine amidst the conflict 

DEC charities and their local partners are in Ukraine and in neighbouring countries providing food, water, shelter and medical assistance. 

More than 11 million people have fled their homes to escape the conflict, including 4 million who have fled to other countries as refugees and 7 million who are internally displaced. 

People from all walks of life and from across the UK have been enormously generous, with the appeal already raising over £280 million. 

This total includes £25 million matched by the UK Government and donations from companies, trusts, arts institutions, community groups, schools and individuals.

As well as providing for people’s immediate needs, donations to the DEC appeal will also help people affected by the conflict in the months and years ahead.

The couple’s visit today comes as members of the royal family were left reeling after Prince Harry gave another explosive interview on American TV.  

Harry, 37, was speaking to breakfast show Today from the Invictus Games in the Netherlands, where he is spending the week after flying in from California with wife Meghan. 

Prince Charles is said to be at the end of his tether with his youngest son as palace staff who cared for Her Majesty throughout the pandemic accused the Duke of ‘breathtaking arrogance’ over his suggestion his grandmother needs extra protection.

The Duchess, who has previously appeared emotional when discussing the Ukrainian crisis, offered a lesson in business chic today in her smart beige blazer 


The mother-of-three gave a lesson in business chic during the outing in London today, where she paired a smart cream blazer with dark trousers and black heels 

He claimed that she confides in him things she can’t talk to anyone else about. And in a barbed comment he said of his visit to Windsor Castle last week: ‘I’m just making sure that she’s protected and got the right people around her’. 

He also risked further fuelling the rift with his estranged older brother by stating that their late mother, Diana, Princess of Wales, was now watching over him from beyond the grave as ‘she’s done her bit’ with Prince William and his family.  

Prince Harry and Prince William are said to have barely spoken and had an ‘incredibly strained’ relationship after two years of rows over Meghan Markle and her alleged treatment of staff, the couple’s decision to emigrate to America and the ‘truth bombs’ the Sussexes have dropped in TV interviews watched by tens of millions of people around the world.  


The Duchess beamed as she met with the CEO of the Disaster Emergency Centre in sunny London earlier this morning 

The couple stopped off en route to see the Queen at Windsor Castle last Thursday, the first time the Duchess of Sussex has set foot in the UK for more than two years. Harry had not seen his grandmother, who turns 96 today, since early last summer.

However the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were away holidaying in the French Alps with their children – just as Prince Harry and Meghan visited the Queen and Prince Charles for a peace offering in Windsor. 

It is understood Prince William and Kate were staying in the resort of Courcheval, with a picture circulating online of them watching their eldest son Prince George enjoy a skiing lesson.

Royal correspondent Robert Jobson said that it was ‘significant’ that the couple were not involved in the meeting between Harry and Meghan and other senior royals.
