The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are on tour again, this time visiting the Caribbean on an 8-day tour to kickstart the Queen's Jubilee celebration.

They will be visiting Jamaica and the Bahamas, but yesterday they landed in Belize first, and Kate naturally took this opportunity to honour the nation by dressing in its colours - something she often does on official tours, as well as wearing symbolic jewellery, such as a maple leaf brooch in Canada.

This time, the Duchess wore a bold blue, red and white floral dress, colours that can be found in the Belize flag.

Perfect for summer, it featured a ruched bodice and flared skirt, and was by designer Tory Burch. Sadly it's from a past season collection, so you can't actually buy it anymore, however the below dresses are incredibly similar.

Vivid Floral Maxi Dress - £199 at Jigsaw
Cut in our best-selling viscose, this soft knot detail pleated neckline maxi dress is as perfect for a special occasion as it is with flat sandals on the beach.

£99 at hush

Rea Tea Dress - £99 at hush
A dainty, pretty tea dress that looks just as cool with sneakers as it does heels. It's feminine down to the smallest details, think fabric-covered button front closure, nipped-in waisted, ruched sleeve silhouette and gathered shirring on the back panel for maximum comfort.

£55 at Sézane

Charlie earrings - £55 at Sézane
These gorgeous statement earrings are made from blue thread, and are also available in other summery hues.

In terms of accessories, Kate wore her signature wedges, though she swapped these for more appropriate flat plimsolls for a walk on the beach. She also wore a pair of statement earrings by Parisian label Sézane, and a fan-shaped clutch by Anya Hindmarch - a bag Kate has owned for years.

During their outing, the Duke and Duchess visited Hopkins, a small village on the coast which is considered the cultural centre of the Garifuna community in Belize, and met with a small group of marine conservation specialists to learn more about Belize’s unique marine environment. They also visited a cacao farm.

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.
