Kate looks elegant in Emilia Wickstead 'Anatola' polka dot dress for launch of BBC's Tiny Happy People
The Duchess of Cambridge has endorsed the national launch of Tiny Happy People, a BBC platform providing resources and support to parents and carers of children aged 0-4.
Last week Kate met families involved in the creation and piloting of Tiny Happy People.
Recognising the impact of the project to supporting parents as they guide their children through the earliest years of life, The Royal Foundation of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will team up with the BBC as they continue to develop and roll out Tiny Happy People.
Tune in to BBC Breakfast on the morning of Tuesday 14th July to see more from the Duchess and Tiny Happy People.
Kate chose Emilia Wickstead's 'Anatola' black & white polka-dot shirtdress for the launch. ID by @hrhthekate via Twitter.
The £1,565 piece is from the designer's AW19 collection which draws inspiration from Francis Ford Coppola’s The Godfather trilogy, and this black and white polka-dot shirtdress effortlessly captures 1980s Italian nostalgia. Exclusive to MATCHESFASHION, it’s crafted from floaty crepe to a fluid silhouette which is cinched with a buckled belt, then falls to a knife-pleated midi-length skirt and fastens with discreet buttons.
The 'Anatola' is also available in white and orange.
Kate teamed the black and white polka dot dress with her camel Casteñer 'Carina' 80 Suede Wedges.
To mark what would have been the start of finals weekend of the Wimbledon Championships, The Duchess of Cambridge was joined by surprise guest Sir Andy Murray, as she spoke to young tennis players from Bond Primary School in South London.
Kate wore a green HVN 'Maria' printed silk crepe de chine midi dress (£665). ID by @carolinepparr.
Patterned with tiny tennis players, the dress was an apt choice for the video chat with the three-time Grand Slam champion.
The playful print can also be found on the brand's 'Rosemary' and 'Nora' mini dresses.
The 'Maria' silk midi dress is currently available in an array of prints and colourways.
It's hard to say for certain but I believe Kate may have worn her Monica Vinader Green Onyx Siren Wire Earrings.
The bow pinned to Kate's dress in the official colours of the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club - dark green and purple, is given to members of the club. We've seen her wear it on a number of occasions when attending the Wimbledon Championships.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge visited the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in King’s Lynn on Sunday to mark the 72nd anniversary of the formation of the National Health Service (NHS).
William and Kate attended a tea party where they meet with staff and thanked them for their efforts in helping their community, particularly during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Duchess stepped out in a new shirt dress by Beulah London for the NHS birthday celebrations in Norfolk. ID by @HeavenQRF.
It is the brand's navy 'Shalini' silk midi dress (£525) featuring a digitally printed floral pattern that is contrasted with a white point collar and matching cuffs. The 100% silk dress is made in England with a fitted bodice followed by a flared skirt, then cinched at the waist with a coordinating belt.
The style is reminiscent of her Alessandra Rich Navy Pleated Polka-Dot Midi Dress, and Kate recently wore the Beulah 'Calla' Shirt Dress which also has a contrast collar.
Kate coordinated the dress with her navy Rupert Sanderson Malory Suede Pumps.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge marked Canada Day on Wednesday with a video call to staff at Fraser Health's Surrey Memorial Hospital in British Columbia.
William and Kate thanked frontline workers across the country for their amazing work protecting and supporting their communities.
The Duchess showed sartorial diplomacy by sporting Canada's national colours- red and white. The new piece appears to be the Alexander McQueen tweed shift dress (ID by @PamWalters1 on Twitter).
I suspect Kate may have added some length to this mini dress from McQueen's 2017 ready-to-wear collection. Made in Italy, this tailored tweed shift dress features a jewel neck, short sleeves, hidden back zipper, and is finished with a silk lining. Below is a closer look at the cotton/wool blend tweed fabric in a mix of red, white and black.
It was hard to get a good look at Kate's earrings, but they appear to be a hoop style.
