Kate, 34, on her first public engagement since returning from an official tour to Canada a week ago, sported the £428 summery knee-length Kate Spade dress - without a coat, despite the bright but biting autumn sunshine - as the royal trio attended an event at London's County Hall to an event to publicise the issue of good mental health.
Later William, Kate and Harry will take a ride on the London Eye with young people who have battled psychological problems and been brave enough to share their experiences with others.

With the Royal tour of Canada at an end we weren't sure when we'd get to do a bit of fashion spotting on the Duchess of Cambridge again, but lo and behold she's out and about today and it's like she's never been away.
In Canada Kate tried some new labels like See by Chloé and Preen by Thornton Bregazzi and it seems like she's sticking to the trend by wearing a dress by Kate Spade. This stateside label is a favorite of her sister Pippa Middleton and Kim Murray who both have a similar aesthetic to the Duchess, so we're just surprised she hasn't worn it before.
In a pretty shade of pink with a dusky rose print it's ultra feminine as you'd expect, a feel that is only accentuated by the retro pussy bow neck tie and the pleated skirt. The good news for all you Kate obsessives out there is it's available to buy so click (right) to snap it up at Nordstrom before the Kate effect takes hold.
Then wear with a pair of classic blush courts to complete the look. Or you can, of course, shop our edit of similar blooming lovely frocks below.
First, however, they are attending a reception where they will meet young people whose lives were changed thanks to crucial support from a relative, colleague or friend.
Outside the Eye the royals were greeted by Rosi Prescott, Deputy Lord Lieutenant for Lambeth, and David Sharpe, Divisional Director of London Midway attractions, which runs the London Eye.
Kate was given a posy from Joanne Sibly, 17, who has been chosen to represent Merlin's Magic Wand, the charity which grants wishes to children who are sick, bereaved or terminally ill. They were also greeted by Ian Cheshire, Chairman of Heads Together and Elisha London, Head's Together's Campaign Director.
William, Kate and Harry will spend the day talking to those who have battled with psychological problems - and hear about the help they have received, in keeping with the theme of this year's awareness day, which is 'mental health first aid'.
