We've noticed that one of Kate Middleton's favourite dress styles lately is the classic shirt dress – particularly in floral print. And we’re so excited that we can find lookalike floral shirt dresses in the summer fashion sales!

It’s not secret the Duchess of Cambridge is a big fan of the style. She wore a red flower print dress by Beulah in a Zoom call in May, but that wasn’t the only time we’ve seen the royal wearing the effortless look.

Kate was blooming lovely in a floral shirt dress by Emilia Wickstead at last summer's Back to Nature Festival

In fact, one of our all-time favourite shirt dresses worn by the Duchess of Cambridge made a royal visit to the 2019 Back to Nature Festival in Woking last summer. Kate was stunning a pretty floral 'Aurora' frock by Emilia Wickstead, a style which you can currently find in the sales.
