The Duchess of Cambridge is really treating us this January, with her second royal engagement outing of the fortnight.

The mother of three visited the Shout mental health text service in London today (26 January) - an initiative launched back in 2019 that provides round-the-clock support from clinical supervisors and over 2,500 trained volunteers to people struggling with their mental health.

The visit was arranged to mark Shout's milestone achievement of one million conversations with those in need.

We think that's a pretty remarkable achievement, and certainly worthy of a royal visit.

And, true to style (quite literally), the Duchess looked every bit her elegant self as she arrived to meet volunteers, wearing a leopard print dress.

LONDON, ENGLAND - JANUARY 26: Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, is welcomed as she visits Shout to mark the mental health text service reaching over one million conversations with those in need, on January 26, 2022 in London, England. The Duchess met clinical supervisors, volunteers and fundraisers to thank them for their invaluable efforts to ensure that vital mental health support is available across the UK at any time of day or night.

Now, before you get excited, this isn't one of those times where we reveal that the gorgeous piece is actually from Zara, but it is currently 55% off, meaning it's still within that do-able price range... just.

Usually £355, the khaki green dress from US designer Derek Lam is now £159 on The Outnet, and includes buttoned cuffs and shirred trims to add some understated detail to the printed piece.

The dress, believed to be a new addition to the Duchess' wardrobe, is made from a light crepe de chine fabric and features feminine pussy bow detailing.

She paired the dress with a pair of £10 gold plated hoop earrings from ASOS, and finished the look with a favourite pair of Ralph Lauren black suede high heel boots and a black belt.

We do love a royal that shops on ASOS.

The dress itself is selling fast and is already sold out in several sizes, however we've scoured the high street to find some affordable alternatives.

After all, we love animal print and we love flattering khaki hues, so now that it has got the Duchess of Cambridge's seal of approval we think we're just going to have to add another animal printed number to our wardrobe.

From a load of budget-friendly alternatives at M&S, to John Lewis, Whistles and Monsoon, we predict all of these similar green animal print designs are going to fly off the shelves ASAP.
