Kate Middleton's pussy-bow blouse - mystery solved!

The royal didn't only spark a sell-out of her tie-neck Gucci blouse back in 2019 - she actually had fans questioning whether she had worn it the wrong way around, too!

Pictured on shopping websites online, the pussybow top is buttoned up at the back - but Kate chose to wear them at the front, though it was only noticeable when the neck tie moved as she walked.

When she re-wore the pussy-bow look in 2020, it appeared that she had chosen to wear it the other way around, since the buttons on her cuffs looked to be on the opposite side. But either way, we think it looks fabulous!
