Eugenie wore a Palmer Harding ‘April Dress’, retailing for £375. This is a different choice of designer for Eugenie. Palmer Harding are known for their ‘shirt’ designs. The dress is a navy button down with three-quarter sleeves. The sleeves appear to be bell shaped, but they are in fact just folded back shirt cuffs; the sleeves have a fitted band just before the folded cuff which features three button closures. A rounded collarless neckline moves down to an exposed button placket with a cinched waistline that has gathered pintucks on either side. The dress features a fit and flare silhouette to just above the knee and a slightly varied hemline length from the front to the back, with the back being just a tad longer. The rear of the dress is gathered with an elasticated fitting.

We love this different and edgy designer from Eugenie, but think the length of the skirt at the front needs to be longer. You can purchase this dress here and here. Get an affordable version of this dress here.

She also wore a Misaharada London ‘Nina’ boater hat, retailing for £191.67. Another surprise millinery choice from Eugenie, which has got social media all abuzz with her use of sartorial headwear choice – perhaps she wanted to declare her happiness and love for fiancé, James Brooksbank? This boater is crafted from black sinamay with a black petersham band. A dotted veil covers the face with the stand-out feature of this hat being the word ‘Love’, which is hand-embroidered in silver beads across the brim of the hat. The hat is worn at a slight tilt for a feminine and delicate edge. The milliner is known for her quirky, unusual and unique designs. You can purchase this hat here.

Eugenie accessorised with her favourite AYA earrings. Eugenie wore the ‘Mosi-oa-tunya’ earrings in emerald, retailing for £745. These tusk shaped earrings hang from two gold chains, forming a triangle shape and feature an emerald stone at the larger end of the tusk. These earrings are inspired by the Victoria Falls and the name of these earrings translates to ‘Smoke that Thunders.’

AYA is a label founded by Eugenie’s friend (and Prince Harry’s former flame!) Chelsy Davy. You can purchase these earrings here.
