At the time, we wrote that Kate wore a bespoke version of Packham’s Georgia gown (pictured below) from the Autumn-Winter 2019 collection. As you can see, the off-the-rack version of the dress came in both lilac and rose pink.
A year later, Jenny Packham released the dress in the deep forest green shade worn by Kate. She renamed the piece from Georgia to Tenille.
About the Jenny Packham Tenille gown:
Jenny Packham covered the Tenille gown with shimmery sequins and strategically placed crystals on the bodice, waist and cuffs. She used a rich forest green satin to craft the dress, which also has internal shoulder pads for structure and an impressive floor-sweeping train.

With some Jenny Packham creations there is no one standout feature but rather a beautiful amalgamation of thoughtful accents that artfully complement each other. Take this Tenille gown for example; while immediate focus falls on the shimmering sequin profile, a closer look reveals the elegant gown is imagined with subtle padded shoulders and trimmed with eye-catching tonal crystal embellishments.
Kate Middleton wearing Jenny Packham:
Jenny Packham is clearly one of Kate’s favourite designers when it comes to eveningwear. Since joining the Royal Family in 2012, we’ve seen the Duchess sport a couple of dazzling Packham gowns each year. We’ve seen her in bespoke, off-the-rack and even diffusion-line Packham at a number of events, including gala dinners, evening receptions and of course, on tour.
Here’s a quick look at three of our favourite evening looks from the archive:
It’s not all glittering gowns. Kate’s commissioned Jenny Packham to create a number of less formal pieces too.
