This pale blue retro dress is by Emilia Wickstead. The DOC wore it to a reception to celebrate The Art Room charity in April, 2013.

Kate chose this gorgeous mint green tweed coat by Mulberry to meet 400 Scouts at Windsor Castle on April 21. The 1,750 (2,042) coat is a classic that she will no doubt recycle!
Kate kept warm in a Moloh navy check coat with silver buttons and collar, for a recent visit to Glasgow with Prince William.

This chic alabaster white coat by Goat with cutesy collar, masked any sign of a baby bump when visiting the offices of Child Bereavement UK. Underneath she sported a black Peter Pan-collared Topshop, and black gloves and a matching clutch added a monochrome edge to her snowy get-up.

Loving the Mulberry broderie anglaise sleeveless dress, worn with Kiki McDonough drop earrings and Stuart Weitzman wedges, to Tuvanipupu Island.
The Duchess is a big fan of McQueen, choosing the label for her wedding day. She wore this white white Alexander McQueen dress embroidered with golden hibiscus flowers, the national flower of Malaysia, to an official dinner hosted by Malaysia's Head of State.
Looking fresh as a daisy, Kate wore a a Jenny Packham pleated dress with three-quarter length sleeves, and teamed them with her favourite L.K Bennett shoes for a visit to Commonwealth War Cemetary in Singapore. Don't you want to buy a parasol immediately?
Kate chose one of the hottest names in design right now, Erdem, when she visited the British High Commissioner's residence in Singapore for dinner.
Looking good enough to eat in pale lemon on a visit to Nauti Primary School in Tuvalu.
More Alexander McQueen for a visit to Gardens by the Bay in Singapore.
Although it may look like a dress, this is actually a heart print blouse and skirt by Raoul that she wore in Singapore.
The Duchess wore a stunning Prabal Gurung dress for one leg of her Singapore trip.
Another day of the Asian tour, another Jenny Packham dress. This pale pink dress with hand painted flowers was very appropriate for her trip to the Singapore Botanical Gardens.
You don't see Kate in very bright shades too often but the vibrant colour really does suit her. She wore a Jaeger shirt dress to visit the Solomon Islands, as part of the Asian tour.
Jolly hockey sticks indeed. Kate, who was captain of girls' hockey team at Marlborough College, wears a retro Chris Evert style tennis dress to the hockey bronze medal match between New Zealand and Great Britain during the Olympics.
J Brand skinnies, a navy Smythe blazer and Stuart Weitzman wedges practically became Kate's uniform during her Olympic duties.
This lavender Roksanda Ilincic shift dress Kate wore to the UK's Creative Industries Reception in July was simple but stunning.
For the Olympics Opening Ceremony, Kate chose a design by Christopher Kane.
Although she's at home in high fashion, Kate also does casual very well. The skinny cobalt jeans and Stuart Weitzman wedges look fantastic.

Getting shown around the National Portrait Gallery in London, Kate chose a flattering blue Stella McCartney dress and gold Cartier necklace.
We saw this cream Joseph dress and matching jacket at the Epsom Derby in 2011 but she clearly thought it was good enough to wear to this year's Wimbledon. Loving the Diane Von Furstenberg animal print clutch.
For the Order of the Thistle ceremony in Edinburgh, Kate wore a yellow dress by British designer Emilia Wickstead, who was once rumoured to be in the running to make Kate's wedding dress.
Another example of Kate recycling, she originally wore this Alexander McQueen sailor dress when she visited Canada last year.
Wearing a white Alexander McQueen coat would make some people nervous but of course Kate is too poised to ever drop a canape on herself. Here she is watching the Order of the Garter procession at Windsor Castle in June. The fascinator is by milliner Jane Corbett.
Kate started a new wellie obsession when she visited the 'Expanding Horizons' Primary school camp in Kent. Suddenly it was bye bye Hunter, hello Le Chameau wellies. Zara skinnies and a Burberry shirt completed the look.
The Duchess and her grandmother-in-law are dressed very similarly for a visit to Vernon Park in Nottingham. The coat is M Missoni and the shoes are - guess? - LK Bennett. She should take shares out in that company.
We are actually not 100 per cent convinced that this shade of pale pink is Kate's colour. Nonetheless, she looks very pretty in her Emilia Wickstead dress.
Here she is on the balcony of Buckingham Palace as part of the Queen's Diamond Jubilee celebrations in an Alexander McQueen lace dress and a Jane Taylor hat.
Oh to have Kate's waist. Her teal coloured Jenny Packham dress, with jewelled belt, highlights how teeny tiny her mid-section is.
This is dull at first glance but the gold and black belt and ornate earrings make this a subdued but elegant look as she arrives at the Imperial War Museum in London in April.
Before peplums became a big fashion story, Kate was ahead of the trend in April in this grey Matthew Williamson dress with embellishment at the premiere of 'African Cats'.
A trusted high street favourite came out again when she opened a children's hospice in March. This dress is by Reiss, from a few years back, and the heels are Episode.
What else would one wear on St. Patrick's Day but green? The coat is by Emilia Wickstead and she wears an an Irish Guards brooch that belonged to the Queen Mother to present shamrock sprigs to the soldiers.
A sombre but elegant look for the DoC here as she attends the Dulwich Gallery with Prince Charles. The grey dress with embellished neckline and pleated skirt is by Irish designer Orla Kiely.
Sporty Kate shows off her hockey prowess as she plays with members of the British hockey team. Style wise, she plays it perfectly in coloured skinnies and a grey hoodie.
And it's more peplum for her visit to Leicester Cathedral in March. The hemline is a little daring for Kate - and for a church. Once again, this is LK Bennett and the pillbox hat is by James Lock.
The M Missoni tweed coat gets yet another outing for the unveiling of a plaque commemorating the restoration of Piccadilly outside Fortnum Mason store in March, alongside Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall. The grey pumps are by Rupert Sanderson.
Another score for Irish designer Orla Kiely as Kate wears her print bird dress to visit a school in Oxford back in February.
What to wear for Valentines Day on a trip to Liverpool? In Kate's case, it's a chocolate coloured Hobbs coat with some Kiki McDonough earrings and shiny, shiny hair.
Coat dresses really suit Kate. She wore a grey Jesire one to a preview of Lucian Freud paintings at the National Portrait Gallery in February.
We're not sure what we love more about this pic of William and Kate at the 'War Horse' premiere in January - her custom Temperley London lace gown or the sweet way he's holding that brollie for her.
Kate is always appropriately dressed for the occasion. For a visit to a homeless charity centre in December 2011, she went sombre in a Ralph Lauren jumper dress and minimal jewellery.
It's a rare outing for Kate's shoulders, displayed here in a black dress by McQueen creative director Sarah Burton. The diamond and ruby necklace was a wedding present. Nice arm candy too.
The Duchess was once queen of the short skirts but marriage and royal duties have seen her adopt a more demure look. Arriving at a concert in December 2011 afforded the rare sight of a raised hemline. The black and cream lace dress is from Zara, while the jacket is Ralph Lauren.
Another event, another Jenny Packham frock. This was a particularly nice chiffon and satin number that she wore in November 2011.
Visiting Copenhagen in November 2011, Kate did Scandi chic but in a LK Bennett coat and a wide patent belt.
For the opening of a children's hospital in September last year, Kate opted for a simple three-quarter length sleeved Amanda Wakely dress that cost 600.
It's another Alexander McQueen, sailor-inspired outfit for a visit to a community centre in Birmingham, in August 2011.
Conscious of the social rule which says one should never outshine the bride, Kate looked pretty but not fantastically memorable at Zara Phillips wedding to Mike Tindall last July in a Jane Troughton ivory brocade coat and assymetrical hat.
