Kate Middleton has looked flawless over the Jubilee weekend in chic dresses, and now she's proven she can also nail off-duty chic, as she was pictured looking amazing dressed down in jeans and a blouse.

The mother-of-three was captured baking with her three children Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis at one of their royal residences, and Kate looked seriously stylish in a gingham blouse and washed jeans.

The series of photos posted on Instagram showed the siblings all eager to get involved in the kitchen, huddled around a batch of cupcakes that they had made.

Another image showed Kate and Charlotte smiling at each other as they iced cakes, and another of Charlotte helping Louis.

The pictures were captioned: "Baking cakes for the local community in Cardiff to enjoy at a Platinum Jubilee street party taking place today! We hope you like them!"

The button-up shirt ticks all the right boxes to be a summer essential. It features an oversized Peter Pan collar, short sleeves and the pink and white check is oh-so stylish.

It's currently still available in five sizes online, but we predict it will be flying off the virtual shelves today.
