The Duchess of Cambridge is having a busy week. Having spent the last few days giving the royal family a sneak peek at her Back to Nature Garden, which the Duchess created with landscape architects Andrée Davies and Adam White for this year's RHS Chelsea Flower Show, the mum-of-three made a surprise appearance at the Queen's annual garden party at Buckingham Palace. Standing out in pastel pink, Kate donned a new Alexander McQueen double-breasted coat dress with pleated skirt.
As the royal mother-of-three makes a case for & Other Stories, we revisit some of her most affordable high street looks to date.
"I can understand that people are nervous about asking for help for fear of judgement, and how that sense of isolation can quickly become overriding and debilitating for any new parent.”
The Duchess of Cambridge today said children need to be encouraged to connect more with nature and less with social media as she toured Chelsea Flower Show. Kate spent time playing with schoolchildren in the woodland-themed garden she helped design at the event. The duchess, dressed casually in beige culottes, a £255 broderie anglaise blouse and white trainers, climbed a ladder into the garden’s centre-piece - a high platform tree house, and sat on a tree stump during her visit.
Kate Middleton visited Bletchley Park on Tuesday afternoon to view its new D-Day: Interception, Intelligence, Invasion exhibition, which marks the 75th anniversary of the historic landings. With blue skies over London, the mum-of-three donned a perfect spring look, recycling her vintage-inspired blue shirt dress which featured white polka dots and matching white collar. The 37-year-old first debuted the midi dress by London-based Alessandra Rich last year, when she wore it for a series of family portraits to commemorate Prince Charles' birthday.

On Wednesday morning Kate Middleton officially opened the new Anna Freud National Centre, the headquarters of a children's mental health charity in North London. The outing came just two days after the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge celebrated their eighth wedding anniversary, at which time Kate was also appointed Dame Grand Cross of the Royal Victorian Order for her services to the sovereign by Her Majesty The Queen. The 37-year-old exuded her usual elegance in a custom made A-line emerald dress featuring a square neckline by New Zealand-born, London-based designer Emilia Wickstead.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were married at Westminster Abbey, London eight years ago today. The occasion was memorable for a number of reasons, not least because it took place a decade after the couple first met at the University of St Andrews. One of the flower girls on the balcony, Prince William's goddaughter Grace Van Cutsem, made headlines when she was pictured covering her ears as the newlywed couple kissed on the Buckingham Palace balcony.
From revamped outfits to a whole new accessory game, who's behind the Duchess of Cambridge's new wardrobe?
The Duchess of Cambridge has spoken of her hope that her children will all one day become Scouts, following in Royal Family footsteps to join the movement.
Her children are breaking up for the Easter holidays this week, but Kate spent Thursday bonding with other adorable kids as she visited the Scouts' headquarters at Gilwell Park in Essex. Dressed in casualwear for her laidback engagement, Kate arrived to whoops and cheers from the young Scouts. The Duchess was learning about the organisation's new pilot to bring Scouting to younger children, while also celebrating the site's 100th anniversary year.Kate, who has carried out engagements with the Scouts before, joined the youngsters in various activities to help them improve skills like communication and teamwork. Boat building and balloon rocket assembling were just some of the workshops that Kate, 37, got stuck into. Let's take a look at the best photos from the royal's day out…
Anyone who watches The Crown will be somewhat aware of the complex nature of being a member of the royal family. While one may assume that the Duchess of Cambridge will automatically be named Queen when her husband becomes King, this isn’t actually the case. When the Duke of Cambridge becomes the ruling monarch of the United Kingdom, his wife will inherit a royal title that differs slightly from that of her grandmother-in-law.
There's no doubt that the Duchess of Cambridge has cemented her place in the Royal Family and the hearts of the nation. Kate is the fourth most popular member of the Royal Family, according to YouGov UK, behind Prince Harry, the Queen and Prince William. PR expert Nick Ede and royal journalist Victoria Murphy discuss why there's a huge amount of public affection for the duchess and how she's gone from a shy student to a confident mum-of-three.
Kate Middleton's modern makeover continued on Tuesday morning as she stepped out to visit the Henry Fawcett Children's Centre in Kennington wearing a pair of wide-leg trousers and a statement shirt. The engagement is the second time the Duchess of Cambridge has ditched royal-appropriate dresses for the smart trouser shape, the first time was during a trip to Cyprus in December 2018. Although seeing Kate in a contemporary trouser is rare, the duchess styled the Jigsaw item perfectly, offsetting the androgynous bottom half with a feminine pussy-bow shirt.
