The dress boasted 3/4 length sleeves, as well as a ruffle sleeve and hem detail.

It also - rather unfortunately for fans - comes with a steep price tag, available for pre-order at £1,595.

The 38-year-old royal accessorised the dress with a pair of pointed toe velvet Manolo Blahnik heels, and the bejewelled cream Charlie clutch bag from Wilbur and Gussie.

Kate completed the look with a pair of two-tier, hammered earrings from H&M, which have since sold out.

Fans couldn’t get enough of Kate’s look, with one Twitter user hailing her a “natural beauty”.

The duchess isn’t the first royal to have worn The Vampire’s Wife.

Last year Prince William’s cousin Princess Beatrice donned the Veneration dress from the brand on two occasions.

Beatrice wore the design to Ellie Goulding’s wedding in August 2019, just months after she debuted the design to the Queen’s garden party in May.

The label’s celebrity clientele expands even further, as it has also been worn by the likes of Sienna Miller and Alexa Chung.

The brand is the brainchild of English model Susie Cave, the wife of singer Nick Cave of Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds.

The Vampire’s Wife took its name from Nick Cave’s abandoned book project and offers an offbeat twist on retro glamour.
