Kate Middleton made a change to her usual elegant appearance while still looking classy in some khakis and tough boots.

The Duke, 36, and Duchess, 37, of Cambridge arrived in Keswick, Cumbria on Tuesday on their way to the countryside. The location was home to many vacations of a young Middleton.

In preparation for the activities of the day, which would include meeting volunteers and going to a fell sheep farm, Middleton switched up her typical wardrobe selection and went a bit more practical. Photos are found below.

The duchess wore a $349.50 green Taylor London utility jacket with black jeans. She paired it with $317.70 combat boots by See By Chloe. Middleton accessorized with her Kiki McDonough "Lauren" earrings and a watch.

Prince William looked more official in a thick navy blue suit and matching pants. The couple was prepared for the cold weather of the small town, which lies 310 miles northwest of London.

After greeting admirers, they would go on to meet persons involved in the mountain rescue service, local first responders, and young, trained mental health workers. Then, they would shear sheep on the mountainside.

The English Lake District in Cumbria was named a UNESCO World Heritage site in 2017. It homes farming and agricultural sites as well as Windermere and Scafell Pike, England's largest lake and tallest mountain respectively.

Lake District is significant to the local economy thanks to the numerous tourists that visit the area every year. The small town's devotion and spirit were celebrated in Prince William and Middleton's visit.

Just a few days before her visit to Cumbria, Middleton joined most of the royal family for Trooping the Color, the annual celebration of the monarch's birthday.

The duchess was the picture of elegance in a cream-colored dress from Alexander McQueen. The v-neck design was set by a double collar that ended at the inset waistband.

As the family prepared to view the Royal Air Force flypast as they do every year, Middleton was forced to impose some motherly duties on a young Prince Louis.

It was the one-year-old's very first time attending the event, and he did something none of his siblings have done before — at least not in public. The young tot sucked his thumb as he sat in his father's arms.

Luckily, when Middleton gently pulled his thumb out of his mouth, Louis obeyed. Soon after, he was caught up by the dazzling display seen in the sky. Prince George and Princess Charlotte also enjoyed the view.
