Designed by Karen Millen, the item also happens to be from the high street and retails for £229. Sadly, the exact burgundy style Middleton is wearing in these photos has already sold out but the same dress is currently available in black, green and beige colourways. You can also shop the look in a petite variation (opens in new tab) if you happen to be 5’4″ or under. 

By way of accessories, Middleton kept it relatively minimalist but added a pair of earrings to her look by the French label (opens in new tab) Sezane. 

This is not the first time The Princess of Wales has been spotted in a look by Karen Millen. In fact, just last October she was seen in a yellow midi dress (opens in new tab) by the label while visiting a maternity unit at the Royal Surrey County Hospital.
