Kate Middleton was recently seen wearing a patterned skirt while out with Prince William in South Wales.

Middleton's houndstooth skirt was a departure from her usual solid-colored trousers.

Zara sold the skirt, making it an affordable and accessible option.

Middleton wore the skirt with a cream-colored trench coat by Alexander McQueen and a matching turtleneck.

Simple pearl drop earrings, black suede boots, and a black handbag completed her look.

Middleton wore her hair down with a side part and a makeup look that was fresh-faced with a pink lip.

Later in the day, Middleton attended a spin class at a nearby fitness center.

The class was part of an effort to educate students on the benefits of exercise for mental health and well-being.

Middleton's approachable fashion choices have helped her maintain her popularity as a public figure.
