Sometimes, royals do wear capes. Kate Middleton stepped out in a baby blue cape coat by Mulberry for her second day of engagements in Northern Ireland with Prince William today. The chic piece of wool outwear is from the English brand's Fall 2018 collection and features a short cape that falls down the elbows, as well as a belt and large buttons.

The Duchess of Cambridge, whose accessories are always as well-curated as the rest of her outfit, toted a navy Jimmy Choo clutch and wore matching Rupert Sanderson pumps to complete the look. She sported the ensemble for a walkabout around Ballymena, where crowds gathered in the streets to greet the duke and duchess.

Based on photos from an earlier, private meeting today, Duchess Kate is wearing a deep blue shift dress underneath her pastel coat. She was seen in the belted, long sleeve number for a sit-down with police officers and staff at Hillsborough Castle.

Today's agenda includes visiting the Braid Arts Center, where they'll get acquainted with Cinemagic, a charity that helps young people develop skills and increase opportunities in film, TV, and digital technology, according to a Kensington Palace press release. The couple will also visit Sure Start, a program supporting disadvantaged children under four years old.
