Princess Kate stepped out in an elegant and stylish blue and green tartan outfit to honor Queen Elizabeth II last week.
The Princess of Wales was seen planting a tree at Westminster Abbey as part of the Queen’s Green Canopy initiative, which was created to mark the Platinum Jubilee, just ahead of the final preparations for the Together at Christmas carol service.
Kate appeared in good spirits chatting with the gathered crowds before continuing to plant the wild cherry tree, a gift from the Duchy of Cornwall.
The Princess wore a stylish tartan coat by Holland Cooper for the occasion, pairing it amazingly with neutral makeup and a bouncy blow dry.
The Queen’s Green Canopy Twitter account posted several photographs of the event, writing: “Amidst final preparations for the #TogetherAtChristmas carol service at Westminster Abbey last week, The Princess of Wales planted a tree for the #queensgreencanopy in honour of Her late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.”
“Alongside the Dean of Westminster, the Very Reverend Dr David Hoyle, and members of Abbey’s gardening team, Her Royal Highness planted a wild cherry tree in the Dean’s Yard, which joins over a million trees planted across the UK as part of the #queensgreencanopy,” they added.
The QGC has planted more than a million trees in Queen Elizabeth’s name between October 2021 and March 2022 – the Department for Environment announced £499,000 of funding for the QGC partners earlier this month, while King Charles has extended the initiative till March of 2023.
The QGC works with a number of partners such as Earthwatch and the Conservation Volunteers, as well as local authorities in over 60 locations across England.
The Tree Council, one of the QGC’s partners, is set to plant 69 thousand trees to create 14km of hedgerow, while Trees for Cities will plant more than 5 thousand in nature-deprive urban areas.
The event went swimmingly as usual for a glowing Kate, who arrive ahead of everyone else, only later emerging to walk in with her family – to the shouts of ‘Kate and William we love you!’ from the crowds – Prince George who walked hand-in-hand with Princess Charlotte, and father Prince Wales.
