There are lots of little details that took place on the day you may not be aware of.

Fast forward to 2020, when Kate stepped out for a royal outing in County Durham. Some onlookers reported that the Duchess gave off a lemon-like aroma. So we know that the royal still has a penchant for all things citrusy.

Emma South, Jo Malone London's Fragrance & Lifestyle Expert, agrees that a sparkling citrus scent has special powers. She previously told HELLO!: "When you think about how our scents connect to our moods and our memories, and what's an uplifting scent to one person can be completely different for another  - based on your personal associations with a particular scent. But universally across the board, citrus is known - in aromatherapy terms - for its uplifting powers, energy and sparkle."
