The Princess of Wales once again rocked business chic in a suit as she visited a charity in east London this morning.

Kate, 41, wore a blazer and trousers for her sixth consecutive public engagement as she carves out a corporate, executive style for herself.

She looked radiant in the £750 Roland Mouret jacket with an angular, fitted blazer and flared trousers and wore her thick brunette locks in bouncy blow-dried curls as she visited Streets of Growth, a non-profit youth intervention charity which runs outreach programmes for vulnerable children at risk of becoming involved in crime.

Kate’s choice of outfit shows McQueen is still her favourite label, even after designer Sarah Burton, who is credited with creating her stunning wedding gown in 2011, stepped down from her role last week.

Upon arrival at the charity’s HQ, the Princess met with frontline staff who work with young people at risk of falling into crime, or those who have already experienced harm or trauma, and aid them by tailoring a pathway of specialised intervention coaching.

Many of the staff at Streets of Growth were once helped out by its programmes and have since returned to the charity to pay forward the support and coaching they received in their younger years. 

The charity specialises in targeted outreach programmes for young people from the ages of 15-25 to re-engage them with the community.

Since the charity was established in 2001, it has transformed the lives of more than 5,000 young people.

Streets of Growth was founded by Diane Peters following a research visit to the US city of Boston, where she was inspired by the work of an organisation called Roca.

In December last year, when the Prince and Princess of Wales visited the east coast city to host the Earthshot Prize, the royal couple paid a visit to Roca.

Streets of Growth builds on a Roca-style model, using neuroscience and cognitive skills to train its own practitioners and help the young people using its services break negative patterns of behaviour. The aim of this is to eventually encourage them to play a central role in building thriving communities.

The charity engages police and youth offending teams within the community, as well as social services, schools and colleges, plus housing associations which may operate the properties where young people using the charity may live.

Streets of Growth operates an Appropriate Intervention Bridging Model, which takes into account the lifestyle, environment, education and careers of children.

The charity has recently moved into a new space in east London, funded by Unite Students. The new HQ has helped Streets of Growth increase its capacity in the area, making it able to cater for more young people. 

Kate’s visit is her second solo engagement in as many days, following her trip to a royal navy base in Yeovilton on Monday.

The Princess donned a £549 black blazer from Holland Cooper which she has worn previously, with gold button detailing, paired with trousers and £650 black pumps with a thick heel from Gianvito Rossi as she visited the Royal Navy Air Station in Yeovilton. 

Kate, who is commodore-in-chief of the Fleet Air Arm as of last month, styled her long, thick brunette locks in bouncy blow-dried waves, with her new 70s-style fringe framing her face perfectly. 

Showcasing her natural beauty, the mother-of-three kept make-up simple with a touch of blush, a nude lip and a bronze eye and she accessorised with white topaz Kiki McDonough teardrop earrings. 

While visiting an aircraft hangar, Kate fell about laughing while trying on an emergency lifejacket and inflating it as she wore it around her neck. Elsewhere in her visit, she chatted with personnel in the air traffic control tower, before having the opportunity to trial the flight simulator.
