Kate Middleton looked in her element as she high-fived children in Scotland today.
The Prince and Princess of Wales, who are known as the Duke and Duchess of Rothesay when visiting Scotland, are spending the day in Burghead, Moray and Inverness.
After she donned a helmet to jump on a mountain bike she met with young children who waved Scottish flags while grabbing the Princess’s hand.
The couple were visiting the Outfit Moray charity which delivers outdoor learning programmes to young people.
Kate, 41, radiated elegance in a Check Diamond Quilted Coat from Burberry.
She layered the jacket over a black turtleneck jumper, black trumpet jeans and heavy-duty Reiss boots, and styled her thick brunette locks in loose waves.

Meanwhile Prince William, also 41, looked sharp in a khaki jacket and navy trousers.
It wasn’t long before the Princess, who is known for her sporty and competitive streaks, jumped on a mountain bike to take it for a ride – and she beamed while doing so.
The couple’s visit today has three destinations; Outfit Moray, Brodieshill Farm and the DAY1 mentoring charity.
Outfit Moray offers young people in the area accessible and affordable outdoor learning workshops.
The aim of the work is to encourage the generation to get outside, help them develop life skills and improve their mental and physical health in doing so.
In particular, the charity helps children aged between eight and 18 who are vulnerable or from disadvantaged backgrounds. Since its inception in 2003 Outside Moray has worked with more than 16,000 young people.
Among the activities the charity involves young people in are mountain bikinh, paddlesports, rock climbing, archery and bushcraft.
It also runs a number of programmes in local schools such as cycle training, bike maintenance and first aid programmes.

Brodieshill Farm is a family-run operation where the Lower Speyside Young Farmers have gathered to meet the royals.
Farmstrong Scotland representatives are also chatting to Their Royal Highnesses about how the organisations are supporting the mental wellbeing of young people in rural communities across Scotland – and local farmers in particular.
Lower Speyside Young Farmers is run for young people from any background from the ages of 14-29 across the local area and provides opportunities for socialising and interaction in what can sometimes be an isolating environment.
The group has recently taken part in the ‘Are ewe okay’ campaign led by the Scottish Association of Young Farmer Clubs, which encourages members to talk about mental health and break down the stigma and taboo associated with it.

The couple’s third and final engagement of the day is the DAY1 charity in Inverness, which provides mentoring, training, personal development and employability services to vulnerable young people.
The charity aims to equip its young people with the social and emotional skills to succeed in life through mentoring and personal development programmes. These allow participants to build self-reliance, selfconfidence and helps them identify their own interests giving them clear direction in their lives.
The charity also owns and runs the social enterprise, Inverness Kart Raceway, which serves as the location for its apprenticeship scheme in Automotive Skills.
