Kate Middleton just wore the sustainable summer dress of our dreams
Kate Middleton always manages to nail relaxed summer dressing, and her floral midi dress wardrobe could give influencers a run for their money. But while she tends to stick to designer labels or a few choice high street names (we're looking at you, & Other Stories), she doesn't often champion sustainable fashion brands.
However, it looks as though the Duchess of Cambridge has found a new label to love, and it's a fashion favourite. Earlier this week, Kate visited a children's hospice as she joined families to plant a new patio garden in Norwich - and she wore a gorgeous dress by Faithfull the Brand for the occasion.
ðŸŒ» This #ChildrensHospiceWeek The Duchess of Cambridge, Royal Patron of @eachhospices since 2012, joined families to plant a garden for The Nook, one of EACHâ€™s purpose-built hospices. Using plants bought during her visit to Fakenham Garden Centre last week, The Duchess worked alongside an EACH volunteer gardener and a family to plant a garden that will provide enjoyment for children and families. Throughout the pandemic EACH has continued to deliver end of life and emergency crisis care as well as bereavement support. Marking the end of Childrenâ€™s Hospice Week, The Duchess also met with staff from EACHâ€™s care and facilities teams to thank them for the incredible work that they do. Organised by the UK charity Together for Short Lives, Childrenâ€™s Hospice Week 2020 celebrates and raise vital funds for the UKâ€™s 54 childrenâ€™s hospices â€” visit @togetherforshortlives to find out more.

The brand is known for its ethical and sustainable credentials, and is an Instagram favourite loved by the likes of Lucy Williams. The exact floral, puff sleeve dress worn by the Duchess costs Â£180, and is sadly sold out right now (surprise!) - although we predict a restock, so keep an eye out.
While it's unusual to see Kate championing a sustainable brand, the Duchess certainly isn't one to shop fast fashion trends - she's often seen re-wearing her favourite looks, and some of her favourite buys have been around since before her wedding to Prince William back in 2011. So it comes as no surprise that she styled the floral frock with her favourite summer shoes; the Russell & Bromley 'Coco-nut' wedges (she's also a fan of CastaÃ±er).
We're calling it; this might be one of our favourite Kate Middleton looks of the year.
