Duchess Kate (39, nee Kate Middleton) appeared again in a virtual appearance - and we noticed several details about it. In the video call, the 39-year-old spoke to nurses about her difficult work during the corona pandemic. In her black, tight-fitting blazer and a white blouse, the triple mom looked simply stunning. Her black and white business look looked extremely serious at first glance, but with her wide-cut blouse, the Duchess managed to incorporate a loose detail.
Celebrity stylist Rochelle White told FEMAIL the move was particularly poignant because of the current crisis the UK is facing amidst the Covid-19 pandemic, revealing: 'It could be a mix of wanting to be more mature and business like, while still being herself.'
Rochelle said the Duchess might be trying to keep focus on her message, rather than on her outfits, explaining: 'I think that Kate knows that the press always have their eye on her what/who she is wearing.
'I think her approach right now is to not be known for that but for what she is doing during this time.'

Separated from each other for too long, the two brothers would now think of easing the tensions that remain. And it starts with an unexpected decision from Kate Middleton and William. Has Prince Harry Really Turned His Back On His Family? This is what many still think.
'In the first lockdown, where she continued to wear her signature dresses and stylish, soft cardigans, the country was experiencing a sense of togetherness, and we were clapping for the NHS every week.
'Kate was able to exude optimism with her outfits, which were often as bright as the rainbow drawings tacked onto windows across the country.
'Now, though, with the country in another lockdown almost a year on, the mood is more sombre. Her most recent calls with NHS workers and a bereavement service called for more formal, toned-down colours to reflect the sensitivity of those conversations.

'The Duchess is aware that every outfit she wears will be scrutinised, and she wants to ensure she respects the seriousness of the occasion when it is called for.'
He continued: 'Don't be surprised if the brighter outfits make a come-back though. On video calls with families, and particularly with children, she will try to inject a sense of fun into a conversation.

Duchess Kate: Conversation with a serious background - and this man touches her heart
The victims and survivors of the Holocaust will be commemorated on January 27, because on this day in 1945 the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp was liberated. The day is used worldwide to remember the horrors of the past, to enlighten and to act against oblivion. Keeping the memory alive is also very important to the Cambridges . Duchess Kate (39, nee Kate Middleton) met on the occasion by video call with Zigi Shipper (91) and Manfred Goldberg (90), who survived the Holocaust.
Kate ditched her usual loose curls for a slicked back classic style when speaking to frontline workers and counsellors about bereavement support alongside Prince William last week.
Kate appeared ready for business when appearing on the call, which saw her question the frontline workers on what more could be done to convince their colleagues of the importance of prioritising themselves for help with mental health.
She put on a stylish display in a Smythe grey blazer with black collar detail, paired with a simple black top.
And it's far from the first time in recent months the Duchess has adopted the business-casual style.
While presenting the findings of her Early Years survey at the end of last year, the Duchess donned a series of colours blazers, which she paired with simple black and white t-shirts.
In a clip from Tuesday's phone call, which was released earlier today, Kate praised Vasu Lingappa for going the 'extra mile' and shared a lighter moment with the NHS worker who joked the patient's wife had wanted him to sing the rock group's hits - but he declined because of his strong Asian accent.
She made the call from the Queen's Sandringham estate, after the monarch loaned her and Prince William the residence to use as their working base during lockdown.
The grand estate in Norfolk is currently empty as the monarch and Prince Philip are at Windsor for lockdown and it is not open to the public.
The Duke and Duchess reside down the road with their children at the 10 bedroom Anmer Hall but have set up a small temporary office with their staff at Sandringham.
It is just a few minutes drive from Anmer and means they can carry out their work without fear of interruption from George, Charlotte and Louis.
