Kate Middleton

Kate Middleton in a shift by maternity wear brand Madderson London


Kate Middleton is known for getting good wear out of her clothes. Despite an undoubtedly well-stocked closet, she's certainly not someone to wear something once and then banish it to the back of her wardrobe never to be seen again.

But today Kate added a new brand to her sartorial arsenal, after we spotted her in a new dress by a designer we've never seen her in before.

Visiting a school in London in her role as royal patron of charity The Art Room, the Duchess wore a Sixties-style navy shift dress with a retro pink, blue and cream tweed hem and pockets, by small London-based boutique, Madderson London.

The 33-year-old, who is five months pregnant with her second child, teamed the dress with a pair of black opaques and black pumps, and despite it being January, decided to leave her coat in the car.

For any mothers-to-be who are taken with Kate's recent purchase, the dress costs £450, and is still available at Pinstripes and Pins.

While Kate hasn't been spotted in Madderson before, Zara Philips is familiar with the brand, and wore their clothes during her pregnancy with daughter Mia.

We've got to say, this is definitely one of our favourite maternity looks yet from Kate. Now something tells us we're going to see a lot of bumps dressed in Madderson London…
