The Princess of Wales has been channelling her inner boss in a series of slick and sophisticated suits during recent engagements, and her latest outing was no different.

Proving the timeless pinstripe will never go out of style, Princess Kate was the picture of professionalism in a smart Holland Cooper suit with subtle stripes. Looking fresh-faced and radiant, the hard-working senior royal stole the show alongside her husband Prince William as they met with Apple CEO Tim Cook at Buckingham Palace.

Her single-breasted jacket boasted shoulder pad detailing and large gold buttons. She wore a soft cashmere turtleneck knit tucked into her matching high-waisted, straight-leg trousers.

Kate's exact Holland Cooper suit is the 'Double Breasted Blazer' and 'High Waisted Straight Trouser' in Navy Chalk Pin Stripe. The blazer retails for £549 while the trousers come in at £299.

The royal mum played it safe with her beauty look, opting for a glowy blend of light foundation and rosy blusher topped with a subtle smoky eye and natural looking lips.

Her brunette hair was swept behind her ears and simple gold hoops hung from her ears.

"Kate could easily have had tapes or ultra bonds, which are incredibly tiny strands of hair extensions. They can add thickness and length to any hair type, but are so subtle they are incredibly hard to detect," she told us. "There are several undetectable hair extension methods these days."
