The dress might look familiar – it's the same one she wore to the Windsor Horse Race just last month. However, fans weren't able to get a good look at the designer number as Kate was wearing a red Zara jacket over the top.

This time, the 34-year-old let the dress take centre stage – much to fashion fans' delight! The beautiful white dress features sheer sleeves, a nipped-in waist and a tiered, swishy skirt. She topped off the look with a beautiful matching hat from Jane Taylor.
