Kate Middleton and Prince William, who will mark their 10th wedding anniversary on Thursday, had a fun day out today as they visited a family of farmers in County Durham. The visit to Manor Farm near Darlington saw the couple touring the farm to find out more about livestock.

As they toured the farm with owners Clare Wise and Stewart Chapman, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge looked relaxed in their casual outfits. 

The couple, who won the Sheep Farmer of the Year award in 2018, told Kate and William how they focus on protecting the health and welfare of their animals and how they work to improve productivity while boosting sustainability. 

The Duchess was even spotted having a ride in one of the tractors.

For the occasion, Kate opted for a cosy looking jumper that she has worn on previous occasions. 

Her £195 Fair Isle jumper featured long sleeves with the Icelandic-inspired pattern around the chest and on the cuffs of the sleeves.

The jumper is from a collaboration by Brora and TROY London and is made from superfine lambs wool.

The company behind the jumper said it is made in Scotland with a zero waste seamless knitting method, giving it a natural fit and clean silhouette. 

Kate most recently wore this thick jumper on her royal train tour of the UK with William at the end of last year.

For the visit back in December, the Duchess added her favourite navy Hobbs coat to the look for a smarter outfit.

Today, she kept it simple and casual with a green wax jacket, matching William in his green padded coat.

The royal is a huge fan of green wax jackets and has several in her collection including ones from brands like Barbour.

Royal fans took to Instagram to share how amazing the Duchess looked for her second public appearance since the funeral of Prince Philip. 

Posting on a fan page, one person wrote: “I love how casual they’ve gone today.”

Another said: “She looks so down to earth and friendly.”

“They look like any normal couple would, I love them,” a third commented.

Kate also donned blue skinny jeans and knee-high brown boots to her look.

The Penelope Chilvers Long Tassel Boots in brown leather are a firm favourite for the Duchess and she has worn them on several occasions.

In fact, she has actually been seen wearing these classic comfortable-looking boots since 2004.

They retail for £475 and are made from natural Spanish vegetable-dye leather.

Kate kept her brown locks natural and wavy, adding a small pair of gold hoop earrings to complete the look.

She also went for natural makeup with a nude lip and brown eyeshadow. 

The couple were first seen in public since Prince Philip’s funeral last week where Kate went for a very different outfit.

As the Royal Family were still in the period or mourning the Duke of Edinburgh’s death, the couple visited an air cadet base in East Ham, London in black outfits, in line with royal tradition.

The Duchess also went for another recycled number and wore her £2,349 Dolce & Gabbana black coat with gold button detailing.

Kate teamed the coat with a pair of simple yet elegant black pointed toe heels by Tod’s.
