The Princess of Wales delighted a group of primary school children as she boarded a train at Bath station this afternoon.
The Queen, 41, visited Dame Kelly Holmes’ trust headquarters in the city today – where she played noughts and crosses with Love Island’s Zara McDermott and students supported by the organisation.
The mother-of-three wore a bright yellow LK Bennett blazer for £359 which she paired with a white T-shirt and matching trousers and Veja trainers for £120.
After the engagement ended, Kate was seen boarding a train from Bath station with her team.
As the Princess of Wales walked down the platform, she beamed at the school children waiting for their train back to Warminster.

Then she left and asked, “Where are you going?”
After being told they were waiting for their train to Warminster, Kate gave them a thumbs up and said, “Have a good trip!”
The princess added: “What are you studying?”
The children’s supervisors then replied, “Trains and orienteering.”
The 15-second video ends with Kate giving the children a final wave before rushing to board the train.
Platform Rail captioned the footage: “Wow – what a royal surprise for students waiting for the train home with us today.”
“Her Royal Highness The Princess of Wales took the time to say hello and ask the children about their trip. It was a better end to the day than we could have ever imagined!”

Kate Middleton radiantly met with young people supported by the Dame Kelly Holmes Trust, founded by Dame Kelly in 2008
The children at St Katherine’s School in Bristol this afternoon took part in the On Track To Achieve program run by their athlete mentor and Paralympic gold medalist Liz Johnson.
In bright summer sunshine, the opposing groups had to take turns running forward and throwing a beanbag onto a grid on the ground.
Kate did her best, but Dame Kelly’s team won twice.
After the first win, the track and field star held up her arms and admitted she was “easily competitive”.
The princess joked, “You never thought so.”
Dame Kelly founded her national youth development organization with the belief that every young person needs a champion.
She also spoke to Dame Kelly, the president of the charity that founded the organization in 2008 to help young people

It brings together world-class athletes with youth who lack confidence or have other issues, so athletes can pass on their winning spirit and help schoolchildren develop the skills and confidence they need to succeed in life.
Later, the Princess sat down to chat with the students, all girls aged 11 to 13, who spoke about their experiences at school, home life and the benefits of being mentored by a sports star.
For the engagement, Kate styled her hair in her favorite bouncy blow-dry style and opted for a neutral makeup look.
For the occasion, she added a touch of blush to her cheeks and eyeliner to her lids.
Meanwhile, she kept her jewelry to a minimum and wore her £795 Emily Mortimer earrings.
The brand, which is a favorite of Kate’s sister-in-law Meghan, describes the earrings online as “multipurpose” jewels that are “the most sparkling of pavé diamonds.”
