For her latest royal engagement today, the Princess of Wales served “business chic” with her ensemble and a new hairdo. This was quite the contrast to earlier this week when Kate Middleton, 41, donned a “casual day out” look at the Dame Kelly Holmes Trust in Bath.

For today’s outing (her second in honor of Mental Health Awareness Week), Princess Catherine paid a visit to the Anna Freud Centre in the U.K. Per the official website, the children’s organization strives to provide “training and support” for children in need of mental health services.

The royal princess (who is a patron of the charity) stopped by to learn more about the organization’s mental health research and personally talk to students.

During her visit, the Princess of Wales rocked an emerald green dress from Suzannah London (see photo above), which featured black round buttons and a belt wrapped around the waist.

She paired the dress with her black and white heels designed by Alessandra Rich

Draped over her shoulders were her signature curls, which framed her face perfectly.

As we mentioned, today’s look was quite a change from the one earlier this week.

For her trip to Bath several days ago, Middleton went for a more comfortable look, where she sported her fave Veja “Esplar” metallic leather white sneakers, her white H&M off-the-shoulder top and her yellow blazer designed by L.K. Bennett, which paid tribute to the late Queen Elizabeth II as well as the charity’s logo.

Even her hair was different: The royal’s hair was still curled, but it was tucked behind her right ear (away from her face) and half of her hair sat over her shoulder for the majority of the day (rather than in the front).
