The trio were seen in the stands at the Sandwell Aquatics Centre where they watched the swimming heats. Seven-year-old Charlotte stole the show, wearing a dazzling nautical dress by one of her most-worn designers, Rachel Riley. The versatile dress is made in a soft jersey material with a classic navy and ivory breton stripe. It comes with a signature peter pan collar with a lace trimmed edge.

Speaking to HELLO!, Rachel said at the time: "It was such a treat to see! It was a delightful surprise, I wasn’t expecting it at all and was gardening at the time! I became aware of the picture when my friends and family started sending me messages asking if the dress was one of ours!"
