The Duchess of Cambridge thrilled fashion fans on Wednesday when she wore an affordable patterned dress from Marks & Spencer on a Zoom call.

The mum-of-three lead an online assembly for Oak National Academy, which was pre-recorded and officially released on Thursday morning.

In the video, the 38-year-old royal wore the The Printed Yoke Midi Waisted Dress, which is part of M&S’ latest fashion drop and costs £39.50.

The design also comes in a skirt version, which is ideal for those who want to add a twist of their own when emulating Kate’s style.

The Chiffon Floral Ruffle Mini A-Line Skirt comes in the same blue, grey and white floral print as the duchess’ dress.

The A-line design also features ruffle detailing along the hem, as well as along the front of the skirt.

It also has an elasticated waistband, so it provides added stretch to ensure a comfortable fit for all wearers.

The mini skirt is available to buy in a regular and long size, for those who shop in the tall section in some department stores and prefer a little extra length.

It is also available in dress sizes 6 to 22 and retails for just £29.50.

The item has already been well received by customers, who have given it glowing five star reviews.

One buy shared: “I am 5ft 1 and bought the size 10 . It comes to my knee. It sits really well at the waist and the fabric drapes well. Looks like it will fall back into shape after it has been in a suitcase . Can’t wait to take it on holiday!”

Another added: “Love the fabric, fit and colour. It is blue and grey so a bit unusual. It is easy to put on and wear. It is not too long on me and I am short.”
