    All eyes were on the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge yesterday as they attended the Commonwealth Games. Kate Middleton opted for an all-white power suit by Alexander McQueen for the occasion, however it was another outfit that stole the show.

    Princess Charlotte joined her parents for the exciting day out, wearing the sweetest blue dress by Rachel Riley. The best news? It’s only £39.
