Let the Duchess of Cambridge inspire one of your final summer purchases, as the royal’s perfect paisley dress is now available to shop.

The £449 Ridley London frock has been on our minds ever since the royal was spotted in the daytime ensemble at a photography workshop back in June.

But who can blame us for adding the look to to our wish list with its holiday-ready print, flattering A-line skirt and frilly sleeves?

It’s also worth looking to the mother-of-three for inspiration on how to style the dress too, as she paired the must-have item with a pair of her go-to Castaner ‘Carina’ wedge espadrilles - the shoe of the season, also loved by the Duchess of Sussex.

For the ultimate royal touch, the 37-year-old wore her loose signature waves with a pair of £850 18ct gold Catherine Zoraida earrings.

Though we’re sure the royal would agree when we say that the ‘Virginia Midi’ will look equally great with a pair of box-fresh trainers.

Due to the ‘Kate Effect’, the dress has a two to three week lead time but the Kensington Palace-approved brand is now taking pre-orders.

Sadly, the Duchess of Cambridge’s exact style of espadrille flew from the shelves but a similar pair, famously worn by Meghan Markle, is still up for grabs.
