The Duchess of Cambridge has worn a number of  incredible dresses this year, and it’s really hard to pick a favourite. But if we had to (oh, go on then!) one of them has to be this pink shirt dress by high-end brand ME+EM.

Kate wore the dress back in May, when the mother-of-three invited Mila Sneddon and her family to the Queen’s official Edinburgh hom. She wore the breathtaking pink ME+EM outfit that matched the five-year-old’s dress – after the youngster previously told her it was her favourite colour.

The £450 design is made from silk and has a dipped hemline, as well as a pleated front. It’s the kind of number that can be worn casually with trainers or heels for a night out. The brand has released the same dress in black, with midnight blue detail. So if pink isn’t for you, this may be right up your street!
