The £1,595 design was first worn by the mother-of-three back in 2020 during the royal tour of Ireland. The fancy frock is crafted from a shimmering metallic silk-blend chiffon, and is cut with a fitted bodice, has puffed sleeves trimmed with feminine ruffles and falls into a softly draped skirt. Princess Beatrice actually wore the design first when she attended Ellie Goulding's wedding in 2019. So you can say this style definitely has the royal seal of approval.
