The company behind the dress is founded by Alice Avenel, a former schoolfriend of the Duchess of Cambridge’s from Marlborough College.
Kate and William attended Avenel’s wedding to French banker Gerald Avenel in 2012.
The periwinkle dress has long been a favourite offering from Avenel’s brand; last summer the company described the frock on Instagram as ‘Puff sleeves, Peter Pan collar, hand smocked…. check,check,check!!! This periwinkle dress is a total winner – also available as a pinafore.’
And it’s little surprise that Princess Charlotte’s attire came under the spotlight; her brother was clad in school uniform and looked shy under the media glare, while Charlotte appeared the consummate pro in spite of her tender years.
She smiled and greeted those waiting outside the hospital doors as she arrived with her father and Prince George.
Prince William went to collect his two eldest children to meet the newborn before swiftly returning to the hospital with them in each hand.
Adoring fans said that the young princess was ‘legit the cutest thing ever’ and that she could be the ‘next Diana’.
