Kate Middleton stunned in a black blazer as she announced the reopening of the Natural History Museum on Monday. The Duchess will also be presenting an award in a virtual ceremony this week.
This week, Kate Middleton will be the face of the grand reopening of the Natural History Museum of which she is a patron. The Duchess of Cambridge shared a clip on Twitter with the announcement.
Middleton, 38, was in London for the event. She reportedly filmed the short video in the Hintze Hall of the museum. The royal also noted that she would be giving an award this week.

MIDDLETON TO PRESENT AWARD
Similarly to in 2014, Middleton will be presenting an award to the Wildlife Photographer of the Year. This time around, the ceremony will be done in virtual form due to the coronavirus crisis.
Ahead of the reopening, Middleton said she had gotten a preview of the museum's new offerings and described it as "truly spectacular." "I can't wait for you all to see it," she added.

HER CHIC OUTFIT
Meanwhile, viewers were thrilled to see Middleton looking gorgeous in a black blazer that featured puffed sleeves. Underneath, the Duchess wore a matching black blouse and black pants to finish the look.
She wore her hair in her signature loose curls and wore no jewelry except for a pair of pearl earrings. In contrast, last week, Middleton stepped out with a full set while entertaining officials at Buckingham Palace.
DEBUTING HER SAPPHIRE SET
Middleton joined her husband, Prince William, in welcoming the President of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelensky, and his wife, Olena. The Duchess looked incredible in a blue Emilia Wickstead dress with a belted waist.
The most prominent part of her outfit was her upcycled sapphire necklace, which came from the late Princess Diana. The piece was redesigned into a diamond pendant with a drop of sapphire in the center.
She paired the necklace with her well-known diamond and sapphire earrings and her sapphire engagement ring — also from Diana. Days before, Middleton stepped out again for another event.
SPEAKING TO STUDENTS
This time, the Duchess dressed down slightly for a visit to the University of Derby where she spoke to first-year students about the impact COVID-19 had on their lives.
Middleton wore an Amaia Kids face mask over her face. She wore her hair straight. Her outfit consisted of a gray sweater and black trousers underneath a long partnered robe. She finished the look with black heels.
MIDDLETON'S GOT MOVES
Middleton's impressive fashion sense is nothing new. But what some royal fans may not know is that the Duchess is big on dancing. Earlier this month, husband Prince William revealed a fun fact about his wife.
"Catherine can floss [dance] but I can't," said the Duke in his new ITV documentary, "Prince William: A Planet for Us All." It sounds like Middleton beats William both in fashion and in dance.
