Kate Middleton & Roland Mouret:
This is not the first time Kate has worn Roland Mouret. In fact, she’s worn two dresses from the designer in the past. You may recall the “Manon” dress? Kate wore the navy blue knee-length dress while at Heathrow, shortly before departing for Canada back in 2011:
Remember the Ella dress? This is another Roland Mouret piece. Kate wore the dress twice, for a dinner at Claridge’s in 2012 and then for the Mandela premiere a year later. (It’s actually still available for purchase too!)
