September has proven to be a big month for the British royal family. Last week, Meghan Markle revealed the Smart Works capsule collection she helped design, and next week, she and Prince Harry will embark on a tour of South Africa. (Stay tuned for my coverage right here.) As for Kate Middleton, today she stepped out to meet nurses working with the Sunshine House Children and Young People's Health and Development Centre in London. 

For the occasion, the Duchess of Cambridge went for a low-key look consisting of an Equipment blouse, Zara culottes, and Gianvito Rossi heels. We're particularly in love with her wide-leg pants, as they're a fresh change from her signature dresses yet still dressy enough for an official royal engagement. Leave it to Middleton to make Zara look royalty-worthy yet totally approachable and real. Scroll down to see how she styled the pants, and shop the trend for yourself.
