  • The Duchess of Kent also wore the dress to Meghan & Harry’s wedding last year

The royals appear to have been swapping fashion tips again, as the Duchess of Cambridge drew inspiration from Princess Eugenie of York at the Chelsea Flower Show on Monday evening.

Mother-of-three Kate donned an elegant floral maxi dress as she attended the event in the grounds of the Royal Hospital Chelsea with husband Prince William and his grandmother the Queen.

The stylish Erdem frock was reminiscent of one worn by the monarch’s granddaughter for the annual Maundy Thursday service last month in Windsor.

And the dress is proving to be a popular choice among royals, with the Duchess of Kent, 86, also opting for the floral frock at Meghan and Harry’s wedding last year.

Kate, 37, added to the glamour of her summery dress with a pair of tan and white wedges, while parting her luscious locks in a half-up, half-down style last night. 

Letting her appropriately-floral ensemble do the talking, the Duchess kept her accessories to a minimum as she sported a silver watch and pearl, flower-shaped earrings.

It is a look that Eugenie, 29, also choose for formal occasions, with the Princess favouring a similar blue floral dress from Erdem.

Featuring a ruffled neck and long sleeves, the royal was also spotted in the frock at Royal Ascot and for a meeting at the UN headquarters.

For the Maundy Thursday service, she paired it with navy blue accessories, including a small hat with plait detailing by London milliner Juliette Botterill.

Meanwhile, Katharine, Duchess of Kent, wore the pretty piece with a pearl necklace and a floral headpiece to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s wedding last May.

Kate joined other members of the Royal Family to showcase her Back to Nature garden designed with children in mind. 

The Duchess of Cambridge has been very hands-on in the creation of her garden, which she designed with landscape architects Andree Davies and Adam White, and has been on site almost every day in the five days leading up to the opening tomorrow.

Established in 1913, on the grounds of the Royal Hospital Chelsea in London, the RHS Chelsea Flower Show has become one of the world’s greatest showcases for horticultural excellence, attracting visitors and exhibitors from across the globe.

Since its beginning, the show has gone from strength to strength. It has grown from 244 exhibitors in 1913 to over 500 today, including gardens, nurseries, floristry, educational displays and trade stands. Today the show attracts 168,000 visitors.

The Show is organised by the Royal Horticultural Society, of which The Queen is Patron. The Society was founded in 1804.
