During her visit to the King Henry's Walk Garden in the London borough of Islington this morning, Kate Middleton met with garden volunteers, painted bird boxes with kids and helped schoolchildren make pizzas in the garden kitchen.

To complete the outfit, Middleton wore black patent heels with a gold buckle and carried an $890 black leather bag by Aspinal of London.

It is understood that she was referring to her mother and daughter trip to the Royal Ballet's production of The Nutcracker at the Royal Opera House in December, when they watched a rehearsal ahead of the opening night.

The visit came after the announcement that Kate has co-designed the Royal Horticultural Society's Back to Nature Garden at this year's Chelsea Flower Show with landscape architects Andree Davies and Adam White.

Apparently the royal's great-grandfather Francis Martineau Lupton was a mill owner who ran a successful textile-manufacturing business, William Lupton & Company, People magazine reports.

Her choice of fuchsia comes just two days after her sister-in-law Meghan Markle was praised for choosing a similar sartorial colour palette on a visit to Birkenhead, The Sun reported. On Jan. 15, Kate had fun chatting with children about their love of pizza and everything outdoors, and the work didn't stop the next day, as she visited the costume department at the Royal Opera House to talk all things textiles. She was then taken to the dye shop where staff displayed different techniques from dyeing to hand-painting and digital printing.

Up to 10,000 costumes are used each year by artists from The Royal Ballet and The Royal Opera House. Numerous costumes are used time and time again thanks to good maintenance and fix.
