It's still chilly in the U.K.

It may be June, but the weather in the United Kingdom isn't exactly warm. On Saturday morning, the royals were out to celebrate the third day of Queen Elizabeth's Platinum Jubilee at Cardiff Castle in Wales, and despite it almost being summer, the temperature was a brisk 55 degrees.

In an effort to seemingly manifest warmer days ahead, Kate Middleton was spotted in a vibrant orange coat for the festivities. Her bespoke Eponine jacket featured a long row of buttons in the front and a bright cobalt blue lining inside that coordinated with her navy pointed-toe heels. Kate kept her accessories minimal, wearing only a pair of geometric gold earrings, and she traded in her royal blowout for a chic ponytail.

She was joined by her husband Prince William and her eldest two children, Prince George, 8, and 7-year-old Princess Charlotte (Louis was absent from the outing). Will and the kids twinned in shades of blue, with George and his dad dressed in nearly identical navy suits with light blue dress shirts underneath, and Charlotte re-wearing the navy coat she initially debuted at Prince Philip's memorial service in March. She adorably paired the jacket with white socks and baby blue Mary Janes.

During the appearance, the Cambridges mingled with the performers and crew involved in tonight's Celebration Concert, and spoke to the food stall vendors who were preparing for the live music event. This marks George and Charlotte's second round of royal duties this week. On Thursday, they took their first carriage ride during Trooping the Colour along with their younger brother Louis. The trio waved to the crowds of well-wishers on lining the streets, until Charlotte decided it was time for her (and the rest of her siblings) to take a break.
