Kate steps out for her first solo outing with the Queen

The Duchess of Sussex has made it pretty clear since marrying Prince Harry that she doesn't want to waste any time and is eager to learn as much as possible.

It was a busy Tuesday in London for Kate Middleton: Fresh off her first-ever solo outing with Queen Elizabeth, Kate Middleton arrived by herself at the site of her brand-new royal patronage, the Foundling Museum.

The Duchess of Cambridge accompanied Her Majesty, the royal patron of the college, to open Bush House, the new teaching-and-research center spread out over five iconic buildings on the Strand campus in central London not far from the Thames.

King's College London is the fourth-oldest university in England, famous for its major role in the discovery of the structure of DNA and research that led to the development of radio, television, mobile phones and radar. Meanwhile Queen Elizabeth opted for her own traditional look, a coat dress, this time in bright pink, and a wide-brimmed hat.

The Queen and the Duchess of Cambridge then visited the roof terrace which offered a spectacular panoramic view of London.

According to Express.co.uk, body language guru Judi James thinks that Queen Elizabeth doesn't treat Meghan Markle as seriously as she does Kate Middleton.

Her Majesty and Middleton dressed to impress for the outing, with the latter donning a grey Catherine Walker coat dress and Sylvia Fletcher fascinator.

After her event with the Queen today, Kate will continue on to her solo engagement at the Foundling Museum.

The Foundling Museum, which tells the story of the 18th century Foundling Hospital, has been working with artists, writers and musicians to develop learning programs, especially for marginalized and vulnerable young people.
