All hail Kate, the lockdown fashion queen!

The Duchess of Cambridge may have been holed up with the kids at the family’s country estate in Norfolk but that hasn’t meant she’s drabbed down.

Kate is as influential as ever in the style stakes – and still retail gold.

All five of the outfits she wore for video calls during lockdown completely sold out within days if not hours. Daily Mail reported demand for the items she wore increased the global searches by an average of 86%. 

Kate, ever conscious of not flaunting her privilege, kept her style understated with high street dresses the order of the day.

In March while visiting the NHS 111 call centre, Kate sent many of her fans into a frenzy with her pink M&S slim-cut suit.

Kate looked casually sophisticated in a mustard jumper from Zara, which she wore on a Zoom call with William in April.

During another virtual appearance with BBC in April, Kate donned her black and white Arket striped knit which she had previously worn in 2019 to the King’s Cup Regatta.

Another stunner that sold out during lockdown was the powder blue floral dress she wore to for clap for the NHS.

During a virtual interview on TV show This Morning, the mom-of-three looked sunshiney perfect in a pastel yellow silk midi floral dress.

In late June, Kate rocked a gorgeous floral puff sleeve dress which she wore to The Nook children’s hospice in Norfolk, where she participated in gardening activities.

It’s not just Kate’s style that’s kept royal fans on their toes but her also her subtle hair changes.

Attending the launch of the BBC’s new education initiative, Tiny Happy People, the duchess showed off her new lighter hair. 

Looking good, Kate!
