Kate Middleton and Prince William visited the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in King's Lynn on the NHS's 72nd birthday on Sunday 5 July.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were all smiles as they met staff at the hospital, which is just 20 minutes from their Norfolk home, Anmer Hall.

Kate, 38, looked sensational as she wore a printed blue shirt dress which was midi length and had a white collar.

The gorgeous dress was tied at the waist with a ribbon belt in the same print and Kate wore some matching blue suede heels on her feet.

The mother-of-three swept her brunette hair up into a glossy ponytail and wore pretty drop down earrings.

Like Kate, Prince William, 38, also wore blue, wearing a blazer and shirt in the colour, paired with navy trousers and a tie.

The royal couple laughed and looked in high spirits as they spoke to hospital staff and their families during their visit.

The pair's official Instagram account, Kensington Royal, shared pictures of their visit to the hospital and marked the NHS’s birthday in the caption.

It read: “Today we mark the 72nd birthday of the NHS, in a year when it was needed more than ever as the nation responds to COVID-19.

"Today, The Duke and Duchess visited the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in King’s Lynn to thank staff for their efforts in helping their community.


"Whether you are existing staff, former staff members who came out of retirement, volunteers or key workers – we thank you for the resilience, perseverance and hope you’ve shown our nation.”

Kate and William’s hospital visit comes after reports the pair are facing a difficult decision of sending their son George to boarding school.

Royal expert Ingrid Seward exclusively tells OK! magazine: “Kate and William are modern parents and will weigh up the decision very carefully.

"Having experienced terrible trauma in his own childhood, William is very tuned in to his children’s mental health.”
