On Monday the 22nd of May, William and Kate joined the Queen at the Royal Horticultural Society Chelsea Flower Show in London.
During the visit, Kate viewed the David Austen Rose exhibit and saw the “William and Catherine Rose”, named in honour of the Royal Wedding in 2012.
From the Express:
“The Duchess of Cambridge took her time to speak with designers at the event and looked through the gardens and designs on show … During the day out, TV presenter Chris Evans gave Kate a cherry tomato from his Radio Two ‘taste garden’ … However, he then dropped it on the decking, but the royal still picked it up and ate it.”
For the Chelsea Flower Show, Kate chose an emerald green floral print dress by Rochas, a fashion label founded by Parisian designer Marcel Rochas in 1925.
The pleated dress is from the designer’s pre-fall 2016 collection. It is crafted from silk crepe de chine fabric and features a bold white dahlia print, capped sleeves, a fitted waist and a midi-length skirt.
The dress originally retailed for £2,633 USD at The Outnet, before going on sale at $924.21. The dress is now sold out online. However, Louisa Via Roma stock a coat and a skirt that features the same dahlia print, if you’d like to steal Kate’s style. Click here to view.
If you’ve followed Kate’s style over the last year, her shoes will be very familiar. They’re the L.K. Bennett Fern style in “trench” (their name for the nude coloured leather).
At the time of writing, the shoes are still available to buy in a number of sizes. Plus, there’s 20-30% off (depending on your location) until midnight on the 29th May. Click here to shop.
Kate wore her coordinating green and gold Monica Vinader Siren earrings for the event.
The £125 / $195 USD earrings are still available to purchase at MonicaVinader.com, where they’re described as “simple, sophisticated” and “great for everyday wear”.
