Kate Middleton, 40, will take over BBC Radio 1’s daily news show, Newsbeat, tomorrow at 12:45pm to present a mental health special with her husband Prince William, 40. The Princess of Wales wore a recycled Zara ecru blazer for the occasion.

Kate opted for her Inverted Lapel Long Blazer from Zara, which costs $69.90, or roughly £63.37 in British Sterling.

According to Zara’s website, the item is a “fitted blazer with inverted lapels and long sleeves with shoulder pads” and also has “front welt pockets”.

The Princess previously wore this blazer on June 8, 2022, when she visited Little Village Brent.

Kate wore this blazer over a plain white top and black trousers to present on Newsbeat.

The Princess chose a very unusual necklace for the occasion from Laura Lombardi.

Kate wore, what appears to be, a gold chain ‘Luisa Necklace’ with a heart at the bottom.

Royal fans had mixed feelings about the £235 accessory.

Twitter user @Emma4AboutRoyal wrote: “It is something that is very unlike anything we’ve seen so far on Kate.

“Very heavy. Absolutely big dislike. Way too much.”

Royal fan @KateMiddStyle tweeted: “Definitely unlike anything we’ve seen her wear before.

“I had the same reaction when I first saw it. It’s growing on me now though.”

Royal watcher @HelenPe96368576 added: “Beautiful outfit.”

The Prince and Princess of Wales took over BBC Newsbeat to present a mental health special.

The royals visited Radio 1’s Live Lounge to hear from four guests about their experiences.

They included a young mental health advocate who recently advised writers on TV soap EastEnders about a schizophrenia storyline.

The full show, recorded on World Mental Health Day, airs on Tuesday on Radio 1, 1Xtra and Asian Network.

During the discussion, the Prince and Princess spoke about stigmas around mental health, the pressures of social media and ways to equip young people with the tools to open up about how they’re feeling.

The Prince said the couple wanted to “have a meaningful conversation about mental health”.

Kate added: “The first step for all of us is to keep having those conversations and keep reaching out for help.”
