One of Kate's favourite polka dot styles is her Alessandra Rich dress

M&S' latest design reminds us of a number of Kate's go-to looks, specifically the Alessandra Rich dress which she wore to a special D-Day exhibition at Bletchley Park in 2019. Recycling her polka dot midi, which costs £1750, she'd first worn it for the official family portraits to celebrate Prince Charles' 70th birthday in 2018.

She often turns to the classic print for royal engagements

Another of Kate's favourite printed styles is her 'Anatola' dress from Emilia Wickstead. Part of the label's AW19 collection, it draws inspiration from Francis Ford Coppola's The Godfather trilogy, evoking 1980s Italian nostalgia. 

Stepping out in her designer dress to attend the launch of a BBC initiative in July 2020, Kate accessorised her ensemble with Castañer 'Carina' wedges, which she tied into sweet bows at the ankle.

Carrying the timeless trend into 2021, Kate was even pictured wearing a spotty blouse earlier this week. Joining Prince William for a joint engagement, the royal couple visited a youth organisation, The Way Wolverhampton Youth Zone, in the West Midlands. 

A picture of poise in her all-navy look, the Duchess tucked a stunning Tory Birch silk polka-dot blouse into a pair of figure-flattering flares. Layered with a tailored coat, she polished off her outfit with a simple gold bangle from Halcyon Days, a gold-buckled navy belt and her iconic sapphire and diamond wedding ring - formerly belonging to William's late mother, Princess Diana
