Kate Middleton The Princess Of Wales Wears Sunshine-Yellow High-Street Dress

On a grey October day, the Princess of Wales, Kate Middleton, visited the Royal Surrey County Hospital’s maternity unit to meet with staff and hear about the holistic support it provides for pregnant women and new mothers. 

To contrast the overcast skies, Kate wore a simple sunshine-yellow midi dress by Karen Millen, featuring a pleated skirt, a notched neckline and puffed sleeves. As ever, she kept her accessories minimal, wore navy heels and carried a matching suede clutch bag. She also wore white gold and diamond drop earrings by Emily Mortimer. 

Kate Middleton will spend time in several hospital areas throughout the day. Upon arrival, she met with the unit’s Jasmine team, which is dedicated to helping mothers who experience mental health issues during and after pregnancy. 

The hospital’s postnatal unit and special care baby unit are also on her schedule, and during Kate’s visit, she will speak to mothers and families who have received support from the Royal Surrey County Hospital staff. Kate will no doubt be a cheering presence during each encounter. Shop her look here:

For almost as long as she‘s been in the spotlight, Kate has been a style inspiration for women across the globe. (Ever heard of the Kate effect? Yeah.) Her spectacular taste in fashion hasn’t yet eclipsed her years of dedicated royal service, but it has come close. 

But while many British tabloids have followed the Princess of Wales’s personal style like hawks in order to predict what trends the land of beans on toast will obsess over next, Americans were more likely to look to a Kardashian for style inspo than a duchess. That is, until now. The likes of Margot Robbie and Ana de Armas have been spotted wearing outfits that Kate has previously worn!
