The future queen of England is a huge fan of the Irish designer, along with her mum Carole, who wore an Orla Kiely 'Dancing Girls' tea dress in to meet her new grandson George back in July.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were  greeted with cheers as they arrived for their visit to the crime prevention charity.

The charity supports prisoners, ex-offenders and disadvantaged young people seen as being at risk of offending, carrying out programmes in prisons and schools across the capital.

 As soon as the duchess was spotted wearing the brown dove-patterned garment  in February 2012 there was an ''absolute frenzy'' on the website, the spokeswoman said.

The following month she wore the Irish designer again while visiting a school in London with father-in-law Prince Charles. On that occasion she wore a pleated grey dress by the Irish designer.
