Princess charming: Kate was all smiles at today's event as she wore her RAF brooch proudly
She may have been keeping a relatively low profile of late but the Duchess of Cambridge made a colourful return today as she attended her first official engagement of the year.
The royal, 34, was elegant in a blue custom-made Alexander McQueen coat as she joined the Air Cadets to mark their 75th anniversary, as Honorary Air Commandant of the organisation.
Her perfectly coiffed locks were offset by a black Lock and Co hat and she wore an Air Cadets Dacre brooch, known to be the highest award any female cadet can achieve.
