Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge has fiercely and impressively committed herself to raising awareness and campaigning for children’s mental health. Oh, and also to being a duchess.

Wearing a Paul and Joe cape paired with a gorgeous purple kira — a traditional Bhutanese skirt — the duchess appeared to have a really good time.

She did have a chance to get back to one of her old loves — outfit repeating — for the couple’s arrival in Bhutan earlier that day. According to reporters, Will and Kate were invited into the cockpit to view the infamously tricky landing firsthand. 

Kate chose a repeat Emilia Wickstead dress for the arrival, a designer favorite (and a designer she’s already worn earlier in the trip).
