Kate Middleton wore a pretty floral dress and here's where you've seen it before

It's no secret the Duchess of Cambridge loves a good floral dress. She only just recently wore a vibrant Faithfull the Brand frock whilst visiting one of East Anglia's Children's Hospices near her lockdown home.

Then yesterday, Catherine and Prince William headed to South Wales to visit staff and residents at the Shire Hall Care Home in Cardiff, and also chat to local business owners on Barry Island, South Wales, and they even had a go on the arcade machines.

Kate looked radiant in a shirt dress adorned with a pink floral print on a pale blue background, which she looks familiar because she's been photographed wearing it before, which of course is no surprise given that she often re-wears her clothes at official events.

She wore this particular style whilst hanging out with Mary Berry last autumn to visit Woking’s Back to Nature festival at RHS Wisley, which was said to be inspired by the Back to Nature garden Kate designed for the Chelsea Flower Show earlier that year.

At the time it was very apt, because why wouldn't you want to wear florals in a garden? The dress is by British designer Emilia Wickstead, who is also a favourite with Meghan Markle.

As it was from last season, you can't buy it anymore, however I've found a couple of other high street versions which you can shop above.

The Duke and Duchess also made sure they played it safe by wearing a face mask and sticking to the social distancing rules.

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 MoneySavingExpert.com, 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.
