Following months of lockdown orders, things in the U.K. are slowly getting back to normal. For members of the Royal Family, this means getting back to work and resuming in-person engagements.

On Sunday, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge made a surprise joint visit to London’s Queen Elizabeth Hospital.

The couple enjoyed a socially-distanced afternoon tea while celebrating 72 years of the National Health System (NHS), and thanked staff for their dedication and support in response to COVID-19.

To mark the quintessentially English event, Kate dressed for the occasion in a prim and proper silk shirtdress from the label Beulah London.

A frequent go-to for the Duchess, the brand is known for their commitment to ethical manufacturing, and even donates 10 per cent of profits towards helping put an end to modern day slavery.
