Kate Middleton flew the flag for British fashion as she touched down in Singapore with Prince William earlier today, stepping out in an elegant Jenny Packham dress.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge set off for the country last night, to begin their nine-day Diamond Jubilee tour of South east Asia and the South Pacific, on behalf of the Queen.

Nodding to the Far East, Kate Middleton looked the picture of elegance, in a pale pink Oriental-inspired, Kimono-style gown by the British designer.

A firm fan of Jenny Packham's elegant style, Kate has worn her creations on several occasions before.

The Duchess completed her tour look with her favourite nude heels, as well as an elegant curved clutch, her glossy locks styled in a half up, half down 'do.

It's thought Kate Middleton has been busy sourcing more than 30 different outfits for the overseas tour, on which she is thought to have taken a freelance hairdresser, paid for by Prince Charles.

Stepping off their private plane, fresh from a 14-hour flight, William and Kate headed straight out to begin a packed day of engagements.

First up was a visit to Singapore's Botanical Gardens, where the couple were expected to view an orchid named after Princess Diana, and have flowers named after themselves.

The couple were greeted by Senior Parliamentary Secretary for the Ministry of Defence Dr Maliki Osman and his wife Sadiah Bte Shahal, who quickly bonded with Kate.

'We talked about the UK and particularly about shopping at Bicester,' she said.

'I said I've been there and I love it and she said she does as well. She said it's great how everything is so contained.

The couple are expected to continue on with their list of events during the coming days, before heading to Malaysia on Thursday.
