The website explains that the beautiful dress is fully lined with a pleated bodice and cut-out back. A perfect piece for all-summer-long. 


The Duchess was glowing in green 

The royal stepped out into the rain, but still managed to look glowing under the safety of a large grey and yellow umbrella – and the adverse weather actually provided some stunning photographs – much like when Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were caught in the rain at the Endeavour Fund Awards in London in 2020.
