The Duchess of Cambridge stepped out today alongside her husband, Prince William, for their first public engagement of 2020.
- The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge headed out for their first public engagement of the year today.
- The royal pair appeared in Bradford, Yorkshire, where Catherine wore a very affordable Zara dress.
- This royal news comes after the Duchess of Sussex was spotted visiting a women’s charity in Canada.
The Duke and Duchess were all smiles as they appeared at Bradford’s Centenary Square and headed to the Yorkshire town’s City Hall.
The royal couple took to the red carpet laid out for their arrival and Duchess Catherine looked as chic as ever in a dark green, floor length Alexander McQueen coat, worn over a dress from high street favourite, Zara.
Accessorising in a simple way, she clutched a small Aspinal handbag and wore a pair of simple black heels.
After heading inside, the Duchess of Cambridge shared a better look at her affordable frock, revealing the flowing, pleated item.
The simple but stylish black and white checked piece features a chic tie neck detail and belted waist.
The dress is currently on the Zara website, reduced from £89.99 to just £15.99, but unsurprisingly, it’s now out of stock in all sizes. The Kate effect in motion!
But while you won’t be able to get the fashionable Duchess’ dress of the day online right now, it’s worth checking Zara’s ‘check in-store availability’ feature, to find out if it’s still in stock in a shop near you.
Alternatively, you could opt for a super similar Zara dupe, like this bargain £7.99 option.
Or go for this shorter Asos offering instead. This one is currently reduced from £34.99 to £22.
