IT'S no secret that Kate Middleton likes her wardrobe to reflect her royal engagements.
So when the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge attended a special NHS film screening in Edinburgh last night, tartan was a total no-brainer for the mum-of-three.

As she arrived at the Palace of Holyroodhouse, the Duchess stunned in a £849 blue-and-green tartan coat by British brand Holland Cooper.
The classic double-breasted coat has gold buttons running down the front as well as a matching belt to cinch in the waist.
Offsetting the statement trench, Kate completed her look with a pair of £525 green velvet Manolo Blahnik heels and some stunning sapphire and diamond earrings belonging to The Queen.
While the Duchess sported her usual bouncy blow dry during a visit to her old university Andrews earlier in the day, Kate tied her wavy hair back in a pony tail for her evening engagement.
Underneath the tartan coat, the Duchess wore a sparkly gold dress – which complemented the hardware on her trench.
The couple paid tribute to Prince Philip – who passed away aged 99 in April – by driving his old Land Rover to the Edinburgh venue.
As a way of expressing their gratitude to key workers, the Duke and Duchess hosted a drive-in cinema screening of Disney's Cruella – starring Emma Stone – for NHS workers.
Before the film started, Kate gave a short speech to thank staff across NHS Scotland.
The Duchess said: "As Joint Patrons of NHS Charites Together, William and I are absolutely delighted that so many of you could join us here tonight. We wanted to thank you for the extraordinary dedication, commitment and personal sacrifice you have shown in supporting our communities through this pandemic.
"It is a real privilege to work with NHS Charities Together. For the last 13 years it has worked tirelessly to improve services for patients and support NHS staff and volunteers, both practically and emotionally. Today, this work has never been more important.
'So, with an enormous thank you to Her Majesty The Queen for allowing us to host the first-ever drive-in film night here at Holyrood.
"And with a huge thank you to Disney and BAFTA, for putting on this evening, and to the fabulous actress Tipper for joining us here tonight, William and I invite you to grab your popcorn, cuddle up under your blankets and be transported to 1970s Britain for an evening of much-deserved fun, drama, glamour and escapism!"
