Kate Middleton wears Reiss for Dublin charity visit

The royals visited a young person's mental health charity in the Irish capital

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are embarking upon day two of their tour of Ireland. After a very green day, sartorially, yesterday, the duchess opted for a more muted stone coat for a visit to Jigsaw, a mental health support service for young people in Ireland.

The royal opted for a high street favourite, in the shape of an off-white Reiss coat, which has been in her wardrobe since 2008. She paired the structured trench with black jeans and boots.

Today, it is Prince William's turn to don Ireland's national colour, wearing a green jumper with a blue shirt under his navy coat.

Jigsaw is a charity that works with young people aged 12 to 25.

“Today was all about shining on light for the need for an increased focus on youth mental health services and supports," commented Joseph Duffy, Jigsaw’s chief executive said of the royal visit. “It’s a reminder to us all that we can all be that One Good Adult in a young person’s life. Having exemplary role models such as their royal highnesses, The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge express this in such a genuine way is really encouraging for all of us at Jigsaw.”

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge run the Heads Together campaign in the UK, a movement that "works to ensure that people feel comfortable with their own and their friends and family everyday mental health and well being".

On day one of their visit to Ireland, the duchess opted for a palate of green hues.

To arrive she wore a bespoke Catherine Walker coat over a patterned Alessandra Rich peplum dress. In the evening, to attend a reception at the Guinness Storehouse’s Gravity Bar, Catherine wore a green shimmering midi dress by fashionable London brand, The Vampire's Wife.
