By wearing this dress to clap for carers, Kate Middleton made something good happen

Last week, the Cambridges joined the rest of the UK to show their support to the NHS by clapping. In a video posted on the Kensington Palace Instagram page, which also featured Prince William's comedic debut , the couple stepped out of their front door, and clapped with their adorable children.

Everyone was dressed in blue, another nod to the NHS, and by choosing to wear her dress, Kate Middleton inadvertently caused something amazing.

Her floral dress is by high-street store Ghost, and after seeing her wearing it, the brand pledged to donate all proceeds from the sales of that particular dress to the NHS.

In a statement on Instagram, Ghost said, 'We are donating all of our online proceeds from the Anouk dress to the NHS @nhscharitiestogether @nhswebsite. We strive to continuously support the amazing work that the NHS staff and volunteers are doing, throughout this challenging battle against COVID-19, to keep us all safe. Thank you NHS, we truly appreciate you.'

The good news (or slightly bad if you were after one!) is that the dress sold out within hours, and it won't be re-stocked due to its limited edition nature. However it does mean a lovely donation is on its way to the NHS.

Ghost did urge fans to keep an eye on the website in case of any returns, so you might still be able to get your hands on it if you're luck. If you're searching for a Ghost discount code, we update them daily.

Penny grew up in France and studied languages and law at the Sorbonne Nouvelle University in Paris before moving to the UK for her MA in multimedia journalism at Bournemouth University. She moved to the UK permanently and has never looked back (though she does go back regularly to stock up on cheese and wine).

Although she's always loved fashion - she used to create scrapbooks of her favourite trends and looks, including Sienna Miller and Kate Moss' boho phase - her first job was at, sourcing the best deals for everything from restaurants to designer sales.

However she quit after two years to follow her true passion, fashion journalism, and after many years of internships and freelance stints at magazines including Red, Cosmopolitan, Stylist and Good Housekeeping, landed her dream job as the Digital Fashion Editor at Marie Claire UK.

Her favourite part of the job is discovering new brands and meeting designers, and travelling the world to attend events and fashion shows. Seeing her first Chanel runway IRL at Paris Fashion Week was a true pinch-me moment.
