The Princess of Wales took the time to greet those who had waited in the cold to meet her, asking people for their names before thanking them for their support.

In a clip of her walkabout posted on social media, Kate tells those waiting that she ‘so appreciates everyone coming to say hi… it means so much’.

Kate then comforts an emotional well-wisher who says she is studying British history, saying ‘don’t cry!’ before telling her: ‘Everyone in Boston has been so friendly’.

She continues down the line, thanking everyone for coming out to meet her.

The mother-of-three looked elegant in a custom Emilia Wickstead, long-sleeve dress for the occasion – which she paired with black pumps and Daniella Draper embellished gold hoop earrings.

The original dress costs $1,201 but doesn’t come with sleeves, so it appears that the Princess of Wales had it altered.

Described as a ‘versatile dress that transitions effortlessly from the office wear to event dressing with minimal effort’ on its website, the pencil dress features a ‘houndstooth print that accents the tailored fit of the piece.’

In addition, the mother-of-three toted a Mulberry blue leather handbag, which is not longer available by the brand but is currently being resold online for $1,100. 

Kate was all smiles as she entered the building, stopping to wave at the hoards of supporters who spent hours standing in the cold to get a glimpse of the Princess. 

Later in the day, Kate donned a rented gown from a brand called Solace London as she and Prince William attended the Earthshot Prize ceremony in Boston.
