For an appearance at the Chelsea Flower Show, the Duchess of Cambridge went for understated style, in a lovely floral print £1500 Rochas dress.
The Duchess of Cambridge had a very eventful weekend, as her sister, Pippa, was married Saturday . While Kate did not have a specific title in the proceedings, her role was as the unofficial overseer: she aided Pippa with the train of her wedding dress, and helped to quiet Prince George when he was getting cranky.
Just a few days later, Kate is back to work, as it were, attending the Chelsea Flower Show in London on Monday. Kate wore a very fitting dress for the occasion: dark green with white flowers emblazoned on it. The dress made by Rochas goes for about $1,950.
Kate toured the various garden exhibits, including the “William and Catherine Rose” flower, named in 2012 (oh, you don’t have a flower named after you?!). Other celebrities present included The Great British Bake Off’s Mary Berry, Jerry Hall, and Dame Judi Dench.
The Chelsea Flower Show is usually seen as the informal beginning of the “spring-summer social season” in the U.K., which involves garden parties aplenty and the Royal Ascot. The show is also a major tourist attraction, and features over 500 exhibitors.
