Kate Middleton switched up her signature feminine style for a pair of chic patterned trousers from high street store Gap.

The royal fashion icon dressed for the weather as she stepped out in a pair of patterned trousers from Gap, which are currently on sale for £21.99 (€26), during the second day of her Cornwall tour.

She teamed the skinny ankle grazer trousers with a simple camisole and her much-loved navy blue Smythe blazer, accessorised with her LK Bennett clutch bag and Monsoon espadrille wedges she wore for the first day of the royal visit.

It's rare for Kate to wear trousers during royal engagements and when she does she usually sticks to her trusty J Brand jeans and Zara skinnies, but the ikat print trousers were ideal for her visit to the Eden Project, a charity and educational attraction in Cornwall.

It's reported the tour is a bid to build a rapport with locals as the couple could potentially be named the Duke and Duchess of Cornwall when Prince Charles takes the British throne.

The parents to Prince George (three) and Princess Charlotte (one) were recently praised for their down-to-earth nature, which was dubbed as "proof of Princess Diana's legacy".

They "can't promote the idea that people should talk openly without talking openly themselves."
