Kate Middleton has done it again.

The Duchess of Cambridge (33) stepped out this morning to visit the Rehabilitation of Addicted Prisoners Trust at a women's prison in Surrey and looked better than ever.

The style icon, who showed off her new fringe hairstyle earlier this month to much fanfare, looked impossibly chic in her grey skirt suit.

Her visit was to meet with prisoners who have overcome addiction and are turning their lives around.

“The visit reflects the Duchess's interest in learning how organisations support people living with substance misuse issues, and the impact of addiction within the wider family network," Kensington Palace said of the visit.

“As Patron of addiction charity, Action on Addiction, she is aware that addictions lie at the heart of so many social issues and the destructive role that substance misuse plays in vulnerable people's and communities' lives.”

The mother-of-two, who returned to official royal duties last week after welcoming Princess Charlotte in May, has made the decision not to put her youngest daughter in dresses for her first year.

Designer Rachel Riley, who regularly dresses both Charlotte and her big brother Prince George (two), they're a "traditional" family and their children's wardrobes will reflect that.

"Because they're a traditional family, I'm sure that she'll wear babysuits for the first year," Rachel told People.

"And then only when she's walking will she then move into dresses."

"Even in terms of separates, I don't think she'll be wearing separates until much later," she said.

Meanwhile, Kate's siblings have been stealing the headlines in recent days with younger brother James (28) splitting with tv presenter Donna Air (36) after nearly three years together.

The couple began dating in early 2013 and James reportedly called time on their romance as he "just didn't think it was going to go the distance."

Pippa (32) was also spotted seeing her long-distance boyfriend Nico Jackson (35) of three years amid reports they too had split.
