Last Thursday, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and their three children stepped out to join the nation in the 8pm clap for key workers.

In a video, the royal parents and their little ones Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, be seen standing on their doorstep at their Norfolk home, Amner Hall, joining in with the all-important tribute.

In the lovely footage, aired on BBC One’s The Big Night In, Duchess Catherine is wearing a gorgeous frock, from high street brand, Ghost.

The stunning blue number seems to be a tribute to the NHS staff helping in the battle against coronavirus and retailer Ghost has now made a special announcement.

Thanks to the renowned Kate-effect, the Anouk dress has flown off the shelves and is now sold out.

Making sure to use the soaring sales as a way to do a great deed, Ghost took to social media to reveal that all the money raised from customers snapping up Kate’s dress would be donated to the NHS.

We are donating all of our online proceeds from the Anouk dress to the NHS @nhscharitiestogether @nhswebsite. We strive to continuously support the amazing work that the NHS staff and volunteers are doing, throughout this challenging battle against COVID-19, to keep us all safe. Thank you NHS, we truly appreciate you,’ the brand wrote on Instagram.

For those gutted that they didn’t manage to get their hands on Kate’s latest look, Ghost has urged shoppers to keep checking the website, in case more come into stock.
