Cate’s chic white double-breasted suit jacket featured bold black buttons, and was tailored to perfection.

The actress kept things practical, by slipping into a pair of flat black loafers with gold detailing for her outing and tied her look together with an eye-catching gold statement ring on her finger.

She carried an oversized stone-coloured tote bag over her arm as she chatted away to her teenage son.

Cate’s blonde bob was styled straight and she shielded her eyes with a pair of glamorous gold-rimmed, bug-eye shades.

Dashiell kept things casual in a red and black checked flannel shirt, dark jeans and a pair of trainers, clutching onto a holdall as he followers in his mother’s footsteps.  

Cate is mother to sons Dashiell John, 16, Roman Robert, 14, Ignatius Martin, 10, and adopted daughter Edith, four, with husband Andrew Upton, 52.  

She is set to star in the children’s fantasy film The House with a Clock in Its Walls, but Cate admitted she’s not certain about how much longer she will keep acting.

She said: ‘I don’t know what I am going to do next as an actor, I never do really. But I feel like I’ve probably got a couple more years left in it, before I lose my sanity.’ 

The House with a Clock in Its Walls is released on 21 September.

Earlier this week, Cate relived the horrors she saw when she visited camps full of Rohingya refugees forced to flee Myanmar in a speech to the UN.

In a speech to the Security Council in New York on Tuesday, the actress said nothing prepared her for ‘the extent and depth of suffering’ she saw when she visited camps in Bangladesh for the refugees who fled a violent crackdown by Myanmar’s military.

Cate said she heard ‘gut-wrenching accounts’ of torture, rape, people seeing loved ones killed before their eyes, and children thrown into fire and burned alive.

‘I am a mother, and I saw my children in the eyes of every single refugee child I met,’ she said. I saw myself in every parent. How can any mother endure seeing her child thrown into a fire?’

‘Their experiences will never leave me,’ the two-time Academy Award winner told the packed building at the UN headquarters in New York.

Cate visited the refugee camps in Bangladesh in her role as a goodwill ambassador for the UN refugee agency in March this year.
