Kate Middleton's heavenly Christmas card dress is finally identified - and it's a high street steal


By Jess Pullar
You can pretty much always count on Kate Middleton to wear the perfect outfit for any and every occasion.
She knows how to rule a red carpet in a floor-length gown, she can sass many an engagement in her array of floaty summer dresses, and let's not forget the shoes - she'd make Carrie Bradshaw envious.
That's why we were absolutely over the moon to catch a glimpse of the queen of chic herself wearing yet another heavenly summer frock in her brand new Christmas card photo.

The blue floral wrap creation looked effortless and chic on the royal.
The picture appears to have been snapped during the British summer or autumn - and while it's only just been released now, the timing for us Down Under is rather convenient given summer dresses are pretty much the only way to survive the heat we're experiencing.
Once we got over how perfect the picture was (did you see Prince Louis' little face!?) it begged the question: Where is Kate's dress from?
We want this dress in our wardrobes STAT. (Twitter)
As it happens, the dress is question is from Boden - and isn't worth a royal sum.
Yep, the gorgeous flowy tiered design isn't out of reach for us non-blue-blooded folk, and while the specific dress in question is sold out, Boden have some similar styles that'll make you feel like royalty in no time.
If you're after a pop of colour, the below Carrie Jersey Midi Dress from the designer is your go-to for summer. With shorter sleeves and a flattering tie at the waist, the dress is perfect for all those afternoon barbecues ahead.

If you're into Kate's tiered flowy design, but into a bit of a twist, the below Nancy Linen Midi Dress is a steal.
It's a lighter, sleeveless design with added ruffles, and practically yells 'effortless chic' from the rooftops.

When it came to replicating Kate's blue long-sleeved style, we cast the net a little wider - and it brought back the goods.
The below Gestuz dress, which is available on ASOS is Duchess worthy, and it won't break the bank.
Happy shopping...
