As the RH Chelsea Flower Show enters full-swing, The Duchess of Cambridge (AKA Kate Middleton) has stepped out wearing her second floral dress in almost as many days. For her latest public appearance, the Duchess arrived at the show wearing a floral maxi dress by designer Erdem - also previously worn by Princess Eugenie and The Duchess of Kent - during a visit with Queen Elizabeth II and Prince William.
While Kate, Will and the Queen were very much focused on the flowers and plants on display, our eyes were very much drawn to Kate's black floral gown. It's equal parts summery, heavenly and also kind moody - I'm very into it.
The high-end designer dress features an empire-waist silhouette and mid-length sleeves that just pass the Duchess' elbows. As for the print, the design features cornflower blue, yellow and charcoal florals, set against a white background. The dress is then finished by matching white lace panel work around the collar, cuffs, waist, bust and skirt.
As for accessories, Kate opted for a pair of tan suede wedges, a minimalist watch and, fittingly, a pair of matching floral stud earrings.
The Queen was her usual vibrantly-dressed self, also wearing a floral number, finished with a pastel green jacket, pearls, a botanical brooch, white gloves and a contrasting black top handle bag:
Meanwhile, Prince William kept his look simple in a dapper navy suit, fastened at the front, with a white shirt and matching blue tie.
How bow dah for a family picture?
But Kate isn't the first royal to wear this divine dress. If you cast you mind back to April, Princess Eugenie wore a cropped version of the same dress, also by Erdem, to the Royal Maundy Service at St George's Chapel:
Oh, and of course, we can't forget how the Duchess of Kent wore literally the exact same number (albeit with trainers) at the Royal Wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, last year:
Yup, safe to say this gown is a royal fam favourite.
Continuing her floral flush, Kate opted for another, slightly lighter, floral maxi style on another trip to the Show earlier this week with William and Prince George, Princess Charlotte and baby Louis. But rather than being by a high-end designer, the Duchess opted for high street label & Other Stories, costing just £79.
Granted, wearing florals for spring might not be considered groundbreaking, as Miranda Priestly so scathingly said, but Kate sure makes it look beautiful.
