The garment is known as the ‘Margaret smock bib dress’. It’s from a special collaboration between Irish fashion designer Orla Kiely and stylist Leith Clark. The pair called the capsule collection “L’Orla“—a play on their names.
The Princess has only worn the floral print dress once to date, in February 2018, at the National Portrait Gallery in London (pictured above).
