At the launch of her Heads Together campaign for mental health, Kate visited London's Olympic Park alongside Prince William and Prince Harry. After speaking about the importance of physical activity as a way to reduce stress, they each took a turn demonstrating their boxing skills with three-weight world champion Duke McKenzie, who described Harry as "a natural," Will as "reserved" and Kate as an "absolutely lovely, sincere person full of charm," according to ITV.

Here's video evidence of Kate being an "absolutely lovely" boxer:

As for the rest of her outfit, the graphic print skirt is Banana Republic, though predictably doesn't appear to be available online. You can, however, still shop her Goat "Binky" blouse, albeit in black, here.
