Kate Middleton’s new nickname should be “Princess Sunshine” after she was spotted rocking a radiant yellow ensemble during a recent royal engagement.

Earlier this morning, Princess Catherine, 41, and Prince William, 41, officially kicked off World Mental Health Day by joining a special forum hosted by BBC Radio 1’s program, Newsbeat (in partnership with a U.K. based charity called The Mix), where the royal couple talked to young people about their mental health. 

For the occasion, the Princess of Wales sported a sunshine yellow LK Bennett blazer (which appears to be sold out) to commemorate the YoungMinds’ #HelloYellow campaign, which aims to create a better and brighter future for young people and their mental health. She tied the outfit together with a black top and matching trousers.

Per Hello! Magazine, the mom of three also donned a pair of earrings gifted to her by Maidenhead Rugby Club coach Sarah Renton. Renton made the accessory to honor the memory of her late daughter, Issy, who tragically took her own life earlier this year. Middleton wore the sentimental piece of jewelry during the open discussion.
