The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have returned to their royal duties after months of conducting public engagement via zoom calls, in light of the coronavirus pandemic.

With the royal pair now able to make in-person appearances in order to conduct their important charity work and support initiatives, Duchess Catherine has been proudly displaying her gorgeous summer fashion sense.

The royal fashion icon who is a glamorous mum-of-three to Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, has of course been opting to step out sporting her signature summer style, rocking several stunning frocks.

The Duke and Duchess paid a special visit to Wales earlier this month where Catherine looking immaculate in a floral Emilia Wickstead dress along with a £15 pink, flowery mask from London based label, Amaia.

During the trip to Cardiff and Barry Island, the future Queen consort put her favourite hack for keeping her flowing summer dresses super flattering by cinching the pretty piece in at the waist with a coordinating belt, giving the number a chic and tailored look.

The Duchess is rarely seen wearing a dress without incorporating the simple trick of using a belt to tie a whole look together, making any midi dress appear far more stylish.

She recently helped out at baby bank charity Baby Basics UK in Sheffield to help pack and distribute donations ready to be sent to families in need of childcare essentials.

For the special visit, Kate looked angelic in a fresh, button-down shirt dress from Suzannah.

Of course, the royal fashionista completed the look with a smart and subtle white belt, a pair of classic court heels and her Amaia mask.
