Kate Middleton, Princess of Wales, was back in action on Wednesday, and her sporty side was on full display.

While visiting Landau Forte College to celebrate Captain Preet Chandi's return from a successful solo expedition to Antarctica, Kate let her natural athleticism shine.

Given the casual nature of the event, the 41-year-old royal opted for a polished yet casual look. She paired navy blue cropped trousers with a cream-coloured Zara blazer, along with her trusty pair of $187 Veja sneakers.

A casual staple in any wardrobe, the stylish royal has been seen in the sleek tennis shoes on a handful of occasions. Previously, Kate was spotted wearing the shoes while touring the University of St Andrews in Scotland, as well as on a visit to The Natural History Museum in London, England.

The comfy fair-trade sneakers are crafted from sustainably sourced materials, including wild Amazonian rubber, organic cotton, rice waste and recycled plastic bottles.

This pair in particular is also embellished with metallic gold detailing for a bit of added shine.

Throughout the event, Kate took part in a roundtable discussion about mental health and building resilience, and even tried her hand at pulling tires across the floor behind her, in a simulation of how Chandi pulled her sled through the Antarctic.

"I need to do some training," Kate reportedly said after the exercise, according to the Daily Mail.

While the sneakers are known to sell out frequently (especially in the royal-approved cream and gold colour combo), you can still shop them for yourself if you're looking to recreate Kate's stylish and sporty outfit.

The shoes are currently available in sizes EU 35 - 40 (US 4 - 9) at Net-A-Porter, as well as in larger sizes at Shopbop. Just don't expect them to stick around for too long — the "Kate Effect" is still alive and well when it comes to affordable royal fashion!
