Kate and Prince William were spotted meeting outdoors with the ITV broadcaster following an action-packed day of royal engagements in the capital. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge appeared to be conducting an interview for the much-anticipated Pride of Britain awards which are due to take place later this month. It is set to be the first time Kate has been involved in the ceremony and three years since William made his last appearance.
But it was the sight of Kate, 38 and William, 38, together wearing matching blue suits which sent royal watchers into overdrive on Twitter.
One user wrote: “Wow. Looking lovely again today.”
A second royal fan added: “Adore the back of that suit jacket she is wearing.”
While a third excited user said: “Wow!!!!! HRH looks absolutely gorgeous.

Earlier on Tuesday Kate officially launched her Hold Still photographic exhibition during a visit to London’s St Bartholomew’s Hospital.
Kate, who is a passionate amateur photographer, began the initiative during the start of the coronavirus pandemic and encouraged people to capture their experiences.
Kate and a panel of judges selected 100 images from more than 31,000 entries.
One of the photos shortlisted was taken by pharmacist Joyce Duah on the coronavirus frontline.

The image of showed fellow colleagues Amelia Chowdhury, 34, and Dipal Samuel, 38 writing their names, smiley faces and love hearts on their disposable personal protective equipment (PPE) aprons.
Kate said the image of two healthcare workers “captured the moment” of life in a hospital during the pandemic.
Wearing a face mask and a red ankle-length Alexander McQueen coat, Kate thanked Ms Duah for sharing the photo.
The Duchess said: “Thank you so much for the image. It had such an impact – it captured the moment, it was a look behind the scenes.

“The story of what you experienced is so important.”
Ms Samuel, who features in the image, explained at the height of the crisis she was forced to use swimming goggles as PPE.
The health care worker said: “It will go down in history. When children are doing history or biology, they can have these photographs of Mum doing this.
“There were times when goggles were in short supply. We didn’t have enough visors or goggles, so one day I had swimming goggles. It was so hot there was sweat filling up my swimming goggles.”

William replied: “I love the ingenuity and thinking out of the box. Your eyeballs were literally swimming in swimming goggles.”
The Duke and Duchess also travelled to Waterloo in south London to view one of the 80 public exhibition sites across the country.
The Hold Still project focused on three themes – Helpers And Heroes, Your New Normal, and Acts Of Kindness.
The final 100 images will now go on display in a special exhibition hosted by the National Memorial Arboretum in Staffordshire from Friday.
