Kate Middleton Just Took Public Transportation to Her Latest Royal Outing

Kate Middleton channeled her inner Londoner and took public transportation during a recent royal outing.

It all started last week when the Duchess of Cambridge, 37, attended the opening of a brand-new facility, called The Nook, for East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) in Norfolk, England.

Prior to the event, Middleton was spotted disembarking a Wherry Lines train, which runs from London to Norwich. The line’s official Twitter account shared proof, posting a snap of the duchess that was taken by a bystander.

It’s not every day you see a perfectly tailored Oscar de la Renta outfit on the commuter train, but that’s exactly what happened. Middleton recycled her go-to fuchsia jacket and skirt, which she previously wore back in January when she visited the Royal Opera House in London.

During the opening, Middleton met with patients, staff members and local students. She also attended a reception and unveiled a plaque commemorating the new building.

The duchess’s involvement should come as no surprise, since she’s been a patron of EACH since 2012. She also facilitated the launch of the Nook Appeal, which helped raise £10 million (about $12.9 million) for the new facility.

Royals, they’re just like us. (Even when it comes to public transportation.)
