Kate Middleton stunned in a feminine floral dress as she and Prince William stepped out for visits to Whitechapel and London Bridge to meet with local business owners and community members.
Prince William and Kate Middleton connected with members of the community when they recently stepped out for a royal engagement to the London Bridge Jobcentre and a visit to the famous Beigel Bake Brick Lane Bakery.
Following the hardships brought on by the novel coronavirus pandemic, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge touched base with the community and the challenges they face in its aftermath, and the royal couple even had some fun in the process.

BEAUTY AND THE BAGELS
Kate Middleton looked stylishly feminine when she stepped out with Prince William for their most recent royal outing. The global health crisis took its toll on local businesses, including the famous Brick Lane Bakery, who managed to donate food to those in need nonetheless.
The red aprons donned by the royal pair didn't hide the beautiful maxi dress Kate Middleton wore by Beulah London, and during their visit, they even tried their hand at making delicious bagels.
A COMMUNITY STANDING TOGETHER
Beigel Bake is a family business founded back in 1974, and during the pandemic, they had to reduce their working hours and staff members, but it didn't stop them from joining a food donation programme called Feast, which delivers food to vulnerable people in the area.
Similarly, the London Muslim Centre and East London Mosque became equally involved in community support, and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge paid them a visit as well.
TOUCHING BASE WITH THE COMMUNITY
Volunteers at the centre made sure their community's most vulnerable members got the medication, food, and hygiene packs they needed. Financial means to make it all happen came from the National Emergencies Trust, of which Prince William is a patron.
Prince William and Kate Middleton also went to the Jobcentre at London Bridge, where they spoke to community members about their struggle to find work following the financial hardships caused by the novel coronavirus.
ONE ROYAL STRUGGLES WITH SOCIAL DISTANCING
During an interview early in July, Kate Middleton shared that her youngest of three children, 2-year-old Prince Louis struggles with social distancing. According to the royal mom, all her toddler wants to do is hug everyone and said:
“Louis doesn’t understand social distancing. He goes out wanting to cuddle anything, particularly any babies younger than him.”
Even so, mom Kate joked that she feels more like a "feeding machine" amid the pandemic, and added that Prince Louis, Princess Charlotte, and Prince George developed bottomless pits for stomachs.
Embracing the floral look, Kate Middleton was also spotted during her recent trip to Wales with Prince William wearing a familiar floral ensemble.
Looking beautiful in a midi dress she also rocked last summer, the Duchess paired the Emila Wickstead design with a pair of two-tone wedged shoes and her disarming smile.
