The Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, is at it again as she put a smile on the faces of health workers during a recent outing with her husband, Prince William.

Last week Prince William and Kate visited St Bartholomew's Hospital in London to present the NHS Frontline workers, who have played a significant role in battling the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, with the Pride of Britain Award.

For the event, the couple twinned in matching navy suits over blue button-down shirts, but it was Kate's outfit that truly spoke volumes. The duchess looked corporate and stylish in a $322 Dark blue three-quarter silk shirt with rainbow patterns from the London brand, Lisou.

William and Kate, alongside their three children, honored NHS workers when they joined millions worldwide to participate in the #clapfortheNHS campaign.

The symbolic shirt was a subtle nod to the health workers as the rainbow is a well-known sign for people who support NHS workers. She wore the shirt under a Smythe blazer with matching blue pants. At the event, the couple was introduced to six representative workers by "Good Morning Britain" host Kate Garraway, who was also dressed in a Lisou attire.

The outing was an emotional one for Garraway and the Cambridges, as the renowned host opened up to them about her husband, Derek Draper, who has been hospitalized for about eight months since contracting the virus.

William and Kate were moved by her plight and expressed their wish to hug her as they comforted her. While presenting the award to the hospital, which Britain's oldest hospital, the Duke of Cambridge praised them for their selflessness and sacrifice, saying the nation couldn't thank them enough. In his words:

"The devastating impact of the pandemic has reminded us as a nation of how much we owe to the thousands of NHS workers who have gone far beyond the call of duty this year."

The duke noted that they worked relentlessly amid the pandemic and managed to put others' safety before themselves. On the other, Kate spoke about how inspired she was by their bravery and acts of altruism as she mentioned that many health workers had to come out of retirement and leave their families for a while to attend to patients.

According to reports, hundreds of NHS workers passed away from the virus while many more still battle its symptoms. Earlier this year, William and Kate, alongside their three children Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis, honored NHS workers when they joined millions worldwide to participate in the #clapfortheNHS campaign.

The lovely family was seen outside their Norfolk residence, with Kate donning a floral blue dress and carrying Louis. They all cheered for health workers in their several blue outfits as a sign of solidarity.
