In 2016, the Duchess of Cambridge (Kate Middleton) wore the Preen Finella dress to two different events. She debuted the red version of the dress during day three of the Royal Visit to Canada, back in September.
Just two months later, she chose the black version of the Finella dress for an awards ceremony hosted by the charity Place2Be.
