Duchess Kate wore it buttoned up to her neck together with a matching A-line navy midi skirt.

The royal has long been a fan of the Alexander McQueen fashion label, wearing a bridal gown designed by Sarah Burton, creative director of Alexander McQueen, for her wedding on 29 April 2011.

She has worn the label many times since, re-wearing a McQueen dress for this year’s BAFTAs.

She wore a pair of diamond drop earrings.

Her hair was worn secured neatly in a half-up, half-down style, and make-up wise she opted for dark eyeliner and a nude lip.
