Kate Middleton owns the Boden Viola Maxi Dress in a vibrant green hue.
We first saw Kate wear the pretty dress during a visit to Baby Basics in Norfolk (in pictures shared by Kensington Palace in August 2020.)
Sadly, we’re yet to see the Princess wear the green maxi dress again. I hope she brings it back this summer!
About the Boden Viola dress:
Viola is an elegant, flowing shirt-style maxi dress that features a tie belt, button front, bracelet-length sleeves and a collar. Boden’s model shows us how it can be dressed up for brunch, or an afternoon event:
Kate shows us the maxi also suits a casual edge, by wearing it with white sneakers and oversized headband.
The garment is crafted from a crinkle viscose fabric.
Can I still buy Kate’s green dress?
Sadly not. The Viola dress is on longer listed on Boden’s website, it’s from a previous season. The brand confirm they do not intend to restock the garment.
Need the exact dress? Try eBay. (There are a couple of new and preloved options available at the time of writing).
Alternatively, take a look at shop Boden’s recent collection of dresses here. As of April 2023, there’s a good dupe—a green midi with a very similar print.

Wear this hardworking green dress all spring and summer. Pair with sandals on the beach, wear with heels to your colleague’s wedding reception, swap to sneakers for a spot of weekend shopping then round off the season by wearing it to brunch with wedges, a brown leather jacket and a cute bag.
And if we’re being honest, it’ll totally work for early autumn too—just add ankle boots, a black jacket and optional tights. So versatile!
Does Kate Middleton own any other items of clothing from Boden?
Yes, she does. In fact, we know of six other items of clothing from Boden in her wardrobe, plus a belt and a pair of flat shoes. I suspect she owns another top from the brand too, but this is still unconfirmed.
- Boden Dora tie-neck blouse in azalea pink
- Boden Aurora dress in blue daisy print (pictured below)
- Boden Lena coat in red
- Boden Skinny Lollipop belt in bubblegum pink
- Boden Hambleden scalloped jumper in azalea pink
- Boden Abercorn cardigan in frosted blue
- Boden cashmere knitted top in smoky quartz (suspected)
- Boden pointed ballet flats in black suede
