With a new season upon us, there’s one big thing on the minds of fashion-enthusiasts – our spring wardrobes.

Luckily, Kate Middleton is here to help us after stepping out in what we can only describe as our ultimate springtime dress.

Dropping her daughter Princess Charlotte to school on Thursday, September 5th, the occasion was particularly special for Kate.

When her eldest child, Prince George, started school back in 2017, Kate unfortunately had to miss the special moment due to suffering from morning sickness while she was pregnant with Prince Louis.

But now, the Duchess has more than made up for it as she accompanied her two children as they arrived for the first day of the new school year at Thomas’ Battersea in London.

The Duchess and her young family looked adorable as they entered the gates of Thomas’ Battersea together.


In the gorgeous images, Princess Charlotte is seen looking a little nervous, but mostly excited as she held tight to her mum’s hand.

And while all eyes were on the young Princess for her big moment, we couldn’t keep our eyes off Kate Middleton, who looked incredible in a pink floral Michael Kors dress.

Wearing her dreamy brunette locks loosely out and accessorising the dress with a chic black belt, we are utterly obsessed with Kate’s school drop off look.

This wasn’t the first time the Duchess of Cambridge has worn it either as she was spotted sporting the frock as she made her way to Windsor last year ahead of Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan’s wedding rehearsal.

How gorgeous is Kate’s dress?!


The dress in question costs a cool AUD $389, which isn’t exactly affordable.

That being said, as we sit here and ogle at the stunning pics, we decided to make good use of the opportunity to find where we can find our own, slightly cheaper version of the stunning dress.

Take the below gorgeous Marks & Spencer daisy print floral maxi dress for starters.

The beautiful design is available for AUD $109 and is the perfect light weight for spring, while still featuring long sleeves for those cooler mornings.
