Kate Middleton recently launched a new campaign, titled Shaping Us, which is focused on early childhood development and providing support to parents and children during those formative years. Now, the Princess of Wales has conducted a new interview for the campaign, and she completely caught our attention with her chic cream blazer.

“Great to chat with @richardiceland all about our #ShapingUs campaign with @earlychildhood,” the caption read. In the video, we see the royal chatting with Richard Walker, the Executive Chair of Iceland Foods and Bywater Properties.

In the short clip, Princess Catherine says: “You hear time and time again that these soft skills, you know, the creativity, the collaboration, the sort of critical thinking, the flexibility, the resilience...these are things that you'd hear that businesses are looking for and it's really interesting seeing how actually, so often, the foundations for those skills are built in the earliest years of our lives.”

The entire interview between the Princess of Wales and Walker is available to view on YouTube, and it's also attached below.

However, while we were totally transfixed by the princess's words, we couldn't help but admire her stunning jacket as well.

We've seen Princess Catherine pull out this capsule wardrobe item before. She wore the item while visiting the Landau Forte College Derby in February. The textured, double-breasted blazer from Zara features golden hardware and shoulder pads, as well as two small front pockets.

While most of the princess's clothing items sell out immediately, you can still buy this fashionable blazer here at Zara's website ($100). (However, they are sold out of all sizes except for the XS.) But worry not, because Zara is also selling this blazer that's almost exactly the same and it's going for the same price (and all sizes from XS to XL are currently in stock).
