Kate Middleton showed up to a Christmas tree event on Wednesday decked out in festive attire. 

The Duchess of Cambridge attended the fun outing at Peterley Manor Farm on behalf of the Family Action charity, which she became patron of on Wednesday. Queen Elizabeth II previously served as patron of the charity, which provides support and resources to families in need, for 65 years before handing it over to Kate. 

At the event, the duchess helped pick out Christmas trees with children, write letters to Father Christmas, and make holiday decorations and reindeer food. In accordance with the winter activities, Kate donned blue jeans, a green sweater, a red puffer coat and some warm boots.

Kate was recently commended for her choice in holiday attire by none other than the queen of fashion herself ― Anna Wintour. 

“I don’t think that you can go wrong with the Duchess of Cambridge,” the Vogue editor-in-chief said in response to someone asking her whose holiday style to emulate. She added that the duchess “always looks absolutely impeccable.” 

Just Tuesday night, the Duchess of Cambridge helped host a reception for NATO leaders at Buckingham Palace, alongside Elizabeth; Prince Charles; Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall; and Princess Anne. 

Prince William is currently away on a solo tour of the Middle East. Prince Andrew also did not attend, as he recently relinquished his royal duties for the “foreseeable future” following a train wreck of an interview with the BBC regarding his ties to convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle also couldn’t make the occasion, as the two are on a six-week sabbatical from royal duties. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex reportedly spent Thanksgiving break with Meghan’s family. They will likely do the same over Christmas, as Buckingham Palace announced last month that the two will be skipping the festivities with the rest of the royal family at Sandringham.
