Step aside Santa Claus, all our Christmas wishes have just come true! The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and legendary baker Mary Berry have teamed up for a special festive programme which was shown on BBC1 on Monday. The delightful trio cook up a delicious feast to thank people who will be working on Christmas Day. Mary came up with sumptuous recipes for a party they hosted at the Rosewood Hotel in London last month. Donning a pinny or two with the help of former Bake Off winner Nadiya Hussain, the royals and the bakers cook up a storm of festive delights - including Christmas Meringue Roulade – for their lucky guests. Yum!

It's emblazoned with white detail and has statement shoulder detail and tailored cuffs. Priced at £1,018.50, it's currently available on Net-A-Porter in some selected sizes whilst stocks last.

The last time the Duchess wore an Alessandra Rich dress was at Bletchley Park in May and also for Prince Charles's official 70th birthday portraits that were released last year.

The dress quickly became iconic - especially as it was actually first seen on the Duchess of Sussex's former Suits co-star Abigail Spencer at the royal wedding in May 2018.
