Duchess Kate is a vision in breathtaking bridal dress in The Bahamas

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will fly home on Saturday

The Duchess of Cambridge pulled out all the stops for her last night in The Bahamas on Friday – and we think she saved her best royal tour outfit for last.

Kate looked exquisite in a turquoise satin dress by couture wedding designer Phillipa Lepley that featured bow-detailing on the shoulders and an elegant, pleated skirt for her arrival alongside Prince William at a reception hosted by the Governor General at the Baha Mar Resort.

Kate and William will fly home to the UK on Saturday after touring the Caribbean. During the reception on their penultimate night, William praised the beauty of the Bahamas and the warmth of its people.

He said: "Catherine and I have witnessed this everywhere we've been today on our first official visit to your wonderful islands."

He went on: "But this is not my first time in The Bahamas. I came here with my mother as a child. Snorkelling around the James Bond wrecks off Nassau left me with the most vivid memory of your beautiful blue waters. For a young boy, obsessed with 007, it was the best holiday ever."
