The Duchess of Cambridge has been absent from our radar over the summer while enjoying a well-deserved break with her family.

On Tuesday, the wife of Prince William was seen doing a spot of shopping, and she looked as gorgeous as ever, wearing one of her most instantly recognisable floral dresses from high street store & Other Stories.

The stunning £95 number was midi in length with layered ruffled tiers, a drawstring tie waist, and tie-up ruffled bib in a mixed floral graphic print. Kate has worn it many times, most memorably in 2019, when she, Prince William and her children privately visited her 'Back to Nature' garden as part of the Chelsea Flower Show. She teamed the designer with her favourite Castañer wedges and it caused a mass-sellout at the time.

The brand re-stocked the item due to popular demand, but it is sadly no-longer available to buy, although some savvy shoppers have since listed it on Ebay.

Keeping in with her high street vibe, 39-year-old Kate also sported a pair of sandals by Dune London. Known as the 'Lenore'. They feature a classic toe-post silhouette accentuated with gold-tone snaffle detailing, mock-croc leather and a buckle slingback fastening. They have gone down to £49 in the brand's summer sale, so why not bag a royally-approved bargain?

 The show was sadly cancelled last year due to the pandemic but is back for 2021 - albeit slightly later than normal. We can't confirm Kate's attendance just yet but you never know, she may well be there, looking as blooming lovely as ever.
