Kate Middleton owns the L.K. Bennett Madison dress in lilac.
The Princess has worn the dress twice in public so far. First, while exiting an event at the Berry Bros. & Rudd wine merchant in London in August 2015 (below) —
And during a visit to Cambridge in June 2022.
The Princess owns the dress in a second colour, raspberry pink. We’ve spotted her wearing that garment three times in public, to date. In 2019 at a polo match in Berkshire, in the same year during the judging for the CBBC Blue Peter Royal Garden Competition and one year later, in 2020, during a virtual game of bingo for care home residents.
The Madison is a lovely dress, I hope we’ll see her wear it again soon—in either colour!
About the L.K. Bennett Madison dress:
I think it’s safe to say the silk chiffon midi is the perfect spring-summer dress. The Princess has demonstrated its versatility by wearing it to both formal and informal events across the two seasons. She’s dressed it up with heels for a dinner with the Queen at a private members club, styled it casually with sunglasses, wedges and a crossbody for a family day at the polo and has worn it under a chic longline coat for a work engagement.
The Madison dress features loose, flowing sleeves that hit above the elbow. L.K. Bennett described the garment as having a “tiered silhouette for effortless style.” It originally retailed for £325.
While the original L.K. Bennett Madison dress is no longer available to buy, the company released a near-identical style named Elowen a few years ago, which is still available to buy now (as of Feb 2023).
Currently, the dress comes in four different prints and colours, as shown below. Click here to shop.

Kate’s worn L.K. Bennett frequently over the last 12 years:
I think it’s fair to say Kate’s a fan of L.K. Bennett. She’s worn the brand at many official engagements over the last decade or so, including high profile royal tours abroad and smaller charity visits at home.
L.K. Bennett quickly became synonymous with the Princess’s signature style in the early years of her marriage, partly due to her love of the brand’s nude Sledge platform pumps(below)—she wore them on repeat for 4-5 years, eventually swapping them for the brand’s Fern and Floret court shoes in 2016.
It’s not just shoes, we’ve spotted the Princess in L.K. Bennett’s coats, dresses and accessories on many occasions too. Some notable moments include the red coat she wore during an official visit to Denmark in 2011, the blue and white floral dress she wore in Australia in 2014 and the purple-blue dress she chose to wear for a meeting with the Obamas in 2016.
