Just yesterday, at a meeting for World Cancer Research Day, Queen Letizia wore her favourite blush tailoring from Hugo Boss. The two-piece has become something of an old-reliable. She wore it earlier this year for a public outing pre-lockdown, and also in December 2019.

Middleton has a similar relationship with her pink trouser suit, this time a dusky pink two-piece from M&S. She first wore the pairing earlier this year, squeezing in a visit just before the country went into lockdown with the London Ambulance Service, and reprised the outfit just this week.

Leaving the jacket behind, she paired the trousers with a scoop-neck tee (Ralph Lauren) and box-fresh trainers (Superga), a perfectly smart-casual combination for a meeting with parenting organisations in Battersea Park.
