Along with bars, pubs and restaurants re-opening, we'd almost forgotten that restrictions lifting this week means museums and galleries can once again open their doors too, including the V&A — which Kate Middleton visited today.

Look every inch the polished royal, 39-year-old Kate was invited to the museum's official reopening and given a tour by director and former Labour MP Tristram Hunt, after it closed its doors to the public back in December.

Considering the duchess studied art history at university and is royal patron of the V&A, she was a natural choice to mark the occasion.

Visiting two exhibitions while she was there — Raphael Court, home to the Raphael Cartoons, and the V&A’s landmark 2021 exhibition Alice: Curiouser and Curiouser, ahead of its opening this weekend — Catherine chose a gorgeous, tailored-fit houndstooth dress from one of her favourite designers, Alessandra Rich for the occasion — as well as a gorgeous pair of gold hoop earrings that its now been revealed are from high street favourite & Other Stories.

Despite the red pleated dress coming in at an eye-watering £1,565 (now sold-out), and her chic black suede Jennifer Chamandi pumps going for £550 a pair, her delicate earrings cost just £17 and are available to buy now.

This isn't the first time Kate has championed the high street, having been pictured at an official engagement back in March, wearing a pair of £15 Orelia Chain Huggie Hoops at the reopening of a school in Stratford with Prince William.

Ever thrifty, we'll be adding these royal-approved earrings to our basket immediately.
