Kate Middleton wears £35 Hobbs dress for Olympic visit

Kate Middleton wore the purse-pleasing high street dress to join Prince William and Prince Harry in Greenwich

Kate Middleton got into Olympic spirit by joining Prince William and Prince Harry for the launch of a new sports project in London this afternoon – and chose a £35 dress for High Street store Hobbs for the occasion.

It’s well known that the thrifty Duchess of Cambridge (often spied rummaging through the sale rails on Kensington High Street) has a good eye for a bargain, and her latest style choice – reduced from £119 to £35 on the Hobbs website – is certainly one of those.

Kate Middleton accessorised the pretty, 50s-inspired grey and cream dress – aptly named the Check Wessex – with a white woven belt, her favourite summer slingback wedges, and, of course, her trademark glossy locks.

The Duchess was joined by Prince William and Prince Harry on the outing, to visit to Bacon’s College in Rotherhithe, where they attended the launch of a new sports project – and were even due to try their hand at a few of the activities, too.

It’s thought Prince William was planning to join children playing football, while Prince Harry took to the basketball court, and Kate Middleton tried table tennis.

William and Kate are due to welcome the Olympic torch to Buckingham Palace during an official reception this afternoon.

They’ll also attend no less than 15 Olympic events at the Olympic park in the coming weeks.
