Both Prince William and Duchess Kate traveled to the city of Bradford today to “visit a number of projects which support the community and promote cohesion within it," according to an official press release. Bradford is known to be one of the U.K.’s most diverse cities.

For the occasion, Kate wore a Zara dress that was recently marked down to $35.99 and a green, maxi length coat by Alexander McQueen. She had her hair in her signature flowing, voluminous waves and wore earrings by the brand Zeen, which she had also worn during the couple’s previous tour of Pakistan last fall.

The Cambridges' Bradford visit marks the first time Kate and William have been out on a royal outing together since Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced they're stepping down as senior members of the royal family.

William has yet to make his own personal statement regarding the matter, but the queen had officially announced her approval of the Sussexes’ decision earlier this week. The queen described handling the Sussexes’ stepping down as a “complex matter” and further details on the logistics of their stepping back from royal duties are supposed to be coming out in the coming days.

“My family and I are entirely supportive of Harry and Meghan's desire to create a new life as a young family. Although we would have preferred them to remain full-time working Members of the Royal Family, we respect and understand their wish to live a more independent life as a family while remaining a valued part of my family,” said the queen.
