In her first public outing since her royal engagement was announced Nov. 16, Kate Middleton stepped out in London for a charity caroling service in her typically classic, if predictable fashion.

Middleton, who has kept a low-profile since she wore a much copied electric-blue Issa dress to announce her marriage plans with groom-to-be Prince William last month, caused camera shutters to flutter when she attended a benefit for the Harry Van Straubenzee Memorial Fund, which benefits children in Uganda. Her future husband is a patron of the charity.

The royal fiancée was photographed wearing a black overcoat and modestly heeled gray-black suede boots that hit right below her knee on what was a bitterly cold and snowy night in London.

London's Daily Mail sniped that some British fashion pundits think it is time for Middleton to start playing trendsetter and ditch the boots, a favorite look for the 28-year-old. On this side of the pond, People commented that she was outfitted in "princess-to-be-style."

The mag reported Middleton was surrounded by well-wishers and friends and was "radiant." Natch.

Meanwhile, one of Middleton's most famous outfits is already considered a royal artifact. Guess how much the sheer dress she wore when she first met her prince charming is now worth?
