Whether it’s her classic pared-back Superga trainers, or one of the countless stunning Kate Middleton dresses we could quite easily splurge our monthly wages on, the Duchess of Cambridge’s style is legendary. 

The latest item that’s bound to sell out is a pretty scallop cardigan from none other than Boden, on sale for £75.

Unfortunately, there is a hold up with this product in particular, with the website stating, 'We're experiencing delays due to Covid-19. Pre-order now to get it in 15 weeks.'

This elegant cardigan will complement jeans, trousers or layer over a simple dress. 

Catherine wore the item while on a call to two frontline workers, expressing her appreciation for their dedication to helping others. 

The Duchess spoke to Johannah Churchill, whose portrait of her colleague Melanie Senior was recreated as a mural in Manchester last month as part of the Hold Still 2020 exhibition.

She also spoke to Dr Edward Cole, who was helping Melanie set up a Covid clinic in south west London.

Duchess Catherine told them, "I hope you have seen and feel the country’s appreciation and pride in all the hard work that you do and all the frontline workers do on a day to day basis.

"Johannah, I just want to say a huge thank you to you for sending in your really amazing image of Melanie.

"It’s really inspiring, it’s very emotive and I think it’s really touched everybody with the reality that it shows of all those who have worked on the frontline and the difficulties that you’ve all faced."

The Duchess looked as polished as ever, the classic cardigan a perfect choice for her understated look.

The website describes the elegant item as a great choice for our changeable British weather. 

‘This one feels lightweight yet warm, thanks to its luxurious blend of merino wool and cotton,’ states the brand’s website. ‘A scalloped collar and sophisticated gathered sleeves give it a feminine finish.’

We want it in all colours... 

The Duchess's beautiful cardigan currently has a waitlist of 15 weeks, but you can still shop the scallop trend on the high street.
