Kate Middleton, 41, switched things up during her latest solo outing.

According to People magazine, the Princess of Wales paid a visit to The Baby Bank in Windsor earlier this morning. It didn’t take long for fans to notice that the royal changed her hairstyle and sported loose curls. (It was entirely different from the hairdo she wore during her last royal engagement with her husband, Prince William.)

During her visit, Princess Catherine personally talked with volunteers/staff members of the organization and learned how they are helping to support families in the community.

The royal princess did a classic re-wear and rocked a chic Larsson blazer by Reiss in the light camel color. (FYI, she wore the blazer last September while attending the RAF Brize Norton in Oxfordshire.) She also paired the look with a white blouse and black trousers. 

To tie the entire ensemble together, the royal wore the Boden Pointed Ballet Flats ($190) in black. Unfortunately, the black flats are currently sold out on the website, but we have a few similar looks you can choose from: Boden Pointed Ballet Flats in the color tomato suede and deep olive suede, in addition to the Snaffle Detail Loafers ($160) in the color black.

Last week, the Prince and Princess of Wales traveled to Birmingham in England (via train) to visit The Indian Streatery, which is owned by the Sharma family. During the trip, the princess rocked a classic side part and tight curls.
