Prince William and Kate Middleton have been seen in public together for the first time since Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey.

The Duke of Cambridge, 38 and his Duchess wife, 39, were out in London on Thursday morning as they carried out an official engagement, visiting a school in East London.

Kate looked gorgeous in a pastel pink coat, which she matched the top which hid underneath it and teamed with a pair of black trousers.

With her brunette hair scraped back away from her face into a ponytail, Kate finished off her spring day look with a floral face mask and a pair of small gold hooped earrings as she was seen alongside her husband.

William matched Kate's light outfit choice with a baby blue shirt, which peeped from underneath a black jumper as he, too, more a protective face covering.

Earlier this week, William and Kate broke their silence on Harry and Meghan's US interview, which saw them make a number of explosive claims during their time as part of the Royal family.

The day after the chat was broadcast stateside, the couple — who will celebrate 10 years of marriage next month — took to their official Instagram account, Kensington Royal, to share a photo of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II during her Commonwealth Day speech.

The snap shoed the 94 year old monarch wearing a blue skirt suit with three pearl necklaces and her favourite chrysanthemum brooch, which she wore on her honeymoon to husband Prince Philip, as she delivered a message about "unity" and "friendship".

The Queen spoke about the importance of keeping in contact with family and friends in these "testing times" amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
