12 high-street summer beach dresses Kate Middleton would definitely approve of

If you love Kate’s style and you’re going on holiday, check out these high-street beach cover ups…

The Duchess of Cambridge is currently on her summer holiday in Mustique - no doubt looking incredible in everything she wears. We’ve recently examined her summer dresses, and we’ve come to the conclusion that she is a pro at summer style. But what about the daytime? What will she wear to the beach when she’s running after three children? What with being a royal, she probably opts for modest pieces, likely with sleeves, and nothing too short.




Because we’re fans of Kate’s style, we’ve shopped around the high-street for some dresses she would wear - they’re all reasonably priced and won’t break the bank.

RELATED: Why we won't be seeing any photos of Kate Middleton and her family on holiday in Mustique

1. Pink Embroidery tunic, £52, Topshop




This bohemiam-inspired tunic dress would look gorgeous on holiday. It works day or night and is great for anyone who doesn’t want to show off their arms. The best news is that it’s on sale.  

2. Blue bardot frill hem maxi dress, £32, River Island




This is proving to be one of River Island’s best-selling summer dresses and it comes in a whole array of shades. Kate will want to keep a low profile on holiday so we can imagine she would go for this pale blue hue.

3. Striped tunic, £39.99, Zara




It’s Kate’s favourite shop: Zara! We imagine she did a little cheeky online order pre-holiday - she’s only human after all - but did she buy this?

When the Duchess last stepped out in Zara, it was a nautical off the shoulder mini dress and it sold out in minutes, but this new updated version would be ideal for beach strolls with the family.

4. Maddalena midi dress, £145, Pampelone




Pampelone dresses are worn by everyone so why wouldn’t the Duchess buy a little beach number inspired by the Cote D’Azur? Made of quality cotton, this midi dress has got Kate’s name written all over it. What’s more, they do mini designs too, so Princess Charlotte could rock one just like mummy.

5. Mandala print maxi bandeau dress, £39, Accessorize




Everyone needs a beach dress that blows in the sea breeze, and this is the one. The stretchy bandeau printed number from Accessorize is ideal for whipping on for mid-afternoon cocktails.

7. Cold shoulder cover up, £34, Oasis




Ok, the Duchess might think this is a tad short, but you’re on holiday - don’t worry! Team with a gorgeous sun hat, big shades, and a pair of jazzy beach sandals and you’re good to go.

8. Rust midi shirt dress, £22.99, New Look




Sometimes a simple shirt dress is all you need. This one, which comes in lots of different colours, won’t take up too much room in the case, and it’s comfy! What’s not to love?

9. Embroidered dress, £69.99, H&M




This broderie anglaise summer dress is so Kate! It features a V-neck at the front and back and it also comes in a gorgeous baby blue.

10. Floral ruffle wrap dress, £59, & Other Stories




Kate loves a floral print and she’s not afraid to wear a bold colour so this peony-print pink dress from & Other Stories is perfect for a visit to the beach.

11. Polka dot sun dress, £18, ASOS Design




Kate loves a polka dot print so this dress is definitely her style. Thanks to the bardot neckline and the ruffle overlay, this dress is very on trend right now.
