Kate Middleton was spotted enjoying a low-key evening with her mother Caroline and sister Pippa in Covent Garden restaurant Clos Maggiore earlier this week.

Although they were happy to dine publicly, the trio were given a private area at the apple blossomed adorned conservatory.

The 33-year-old mother of two said two weeks ago that she and Prince William hadn't yet begun their Christmas preparations, but said two-year-old Prince George "will be starting to talk about Christmas soon." And hopefully we'll get more adorable photos of the royal toddler with his sister, Princess Charlotte for the festive season.

Boutique owner Margarita Pato Cid of M&H in Valladolid, Spain, said the her supplier no longer makes the fabric for the garmeny and she only has 10 metres of the cloth left.

"I have had inquiries from as far afield as America, but the material will do for 22 dresses at most, and I can’t get any more because the factory that makes it in Valencia has moved on to material for summer 2016 and next winter. We are completely overwhelmed by the demand and I don’t know how we are going to meet it," she told the Telegraph.
