M&S is a brand that Kate Middleton has shown she's a fan of - remember when she stepped out in their bargain rainbow trainers which ended up being so popular they sold out before returning for 2021 with three fresh looks?

Well, now fans of the Duchess' low-cost high street styling can take advantage of this super cute spring dress that has just launched at Marks & Spencer.

Pure Cotton Broderie Midi Shirt Dress:

Cut to a chic midi length (120cm from neck to hem) in a regular fit, this dress features a smart collar and button fastenings. 

Pure cotton fabric provides breathable wear and it's available in colours blue or black.

It's time to put away your best jeans and get your legs prepped because this spring you're going to turn heads.

Not only does the dress come in a pretty pastel blue colour or classic black but it features four of Kate's favourite styling elements; it's a shirt dress, it's pastel blue, it has broderie detailing, and has a tie waist. Everyone loves an M&S spring shirt dress – even the Duchess and even though this hasn't been designed for Kate, it's expected to be a real winner with the mum-of-three.

The M&S spring shirt dress has feminine detailing which comes in the form of a tie front, puffy shoulders, and a pretty broderie effect and is part of the M&S Collection: which delivers easy-to-wear wardrobe staples that combine classic and contemporary styles for shoppers.

Prince William's wife has stepped out in broderie Anglaise dresses before – most notably during the couple's trip to Sydney during their 2014 royal tour when she wore a lemon-coloured frock.

Kate's love of shirt dresses has continued and in recent months she has been spotted wearing a long-sleeved navy blue print shirt dress, a floral red shirt dress, and not forgetting her beautiful pastel blue shirt dress with pink flowers during her visit to Barry Island, South Wales last year.

Whatever colour she chooses there's no denying she looks effortlessly stylish in these staple cuts.

The M&S spring shirt dress is expected to be snapped up when shops re-open on April 12, so what are you waiting for? Pop them in your online basket and beat the crowds.
