The duchess was in good spirits and looked to be at ease with the crowds who gathered to catch a glimpse of the royal duo. In addition to shaking hands and chatting, the mom of three offered hugs to a few lucky spectators.

For a sweet treat, the couple met with apprentices from Bradford College where they practiced making mango and kulfi milkshakes.

Later at the Khidmat Centre, the pair met with those who help the most vulnerable members of the community from minority ethnic backgrounds. The Cambridges heard about the activities and workshops offered at the centre, and the organizations that they support.

Kate and William also joined a workshop with Near Neighbours–who bring together people from religiously and ethnically diverse communities across the UK to get to know each other better.

For the special visit to the northern English county of West Yorkshire, Kate opted for a new green military coat from Alexander McQueen.
