On the 3rd of March 2020, Kate wore a green rose-printed dress during a visit to the Republic of Ireland. It was by designer, Alessandra Rich.
Kate clearly chose the colour to honour her first official visit to the country. It’s the ideal shade to wear while on tour of the Emerald Isle at springtime!
About Kate’s Alessandra Rich dress:
The ultra-feminine tailored green dress has been constructed entirely out of 100% pleated silk crepe de chine. The retro-style dress draws from the 1980s with its high neckline, long sleeves, pin-tucked bodice and peplum waist.
This graceful silk dress is finished with crystal-embellished buttons. The straight skirt features a hem split and zips at the side. This smart and chic dress was the ideal choice for Kate’s engagement in Dublin.
Note: Kate had the buttons changed on her dress (to match a coat she was wearing)
