Duchess of Cambridge chooses summer shirt dress for Royal Foundation meeting

Yesterday, it was announced that The Royal Foundation has sent out grants totalling £1.8 million to organisations helping frontline workers and mental health. William and Kate met with representatives from the 10 organisations this money will support earlier in the week, and we got a lovely summer look from the Duchess.

The Duchess of Cambridge wore a new dress from Suzannah; a portion of profits will go to help the Royal Foundation’s Covid-response

This is the Cotton shirt dress from Suzannah. With half, cuffed sleeves, a pointed collar and visible placket, this a-line dress oozes smart casual, and is based on a 1950s silhouette. It is tied with a wide belt at the waist, and the skirt is given volume with four multi-pleats (two at the front, two at the back). The dress is made from organic cotton, and features invisible pockets in the side seams. It costs £995 here.

20% of each sale goes towards The Royal Foundation Covid-19 fund, which is what the Duchess was discussing in this particular meeting.

For a white shirt dress with blue print, try this, or for the shape of this piece try this.

The Duchess paired it with her Castaner ‘Carina’ espadrille wedges, with ankle laces, which are her current go-to summer footwear. You can just see the ties on her foot below. Try these – an updated version of the shoe for £85, or these for a more affordable option.

Kate wore a new bracelet, from Sezane. It is the ‘Stephanie’ cuff, with faux pearls ‘shelled’ at either end with cutout gold-work. This style is sold out, costing £75, but is available in teal and blue.

Finally, Catherine chose her Daniella Draper mini cupid hoop earrings, without the charm. Get the originals here or these for a very good match.
