With the easing of lockdown restrictions in the UK, comes Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge's first summer fashion moment: a lilac floral tea dress that's perfect for a sunny day of gardening. The Duchess visited The Nook Hospice in Norwich on Thursday June 25 to help with planting a garden in support of Children's Hospice Week.

For her summer debut, the Duchess wore a lilac Marie-Louise floral midi dress designed by sustainable Australian brand Faithfull The Brand. It's the first time that Catherine has worn this brand for an official engagement, and we're pleased that it's youthful, sustainable, and affordable (for a royal), selling for $189. The empire-waist tea dress features on-trend puff sleeves, a V-neckline, and a demure keyhole opening, in the popular lilac Nefeli floral print. Kate paired her midi dress with Russell and Bromley Coco-nut Ankle Strap Espadrilles, Accessorise Twisted Circle Drop Earrings, and an adorable white rubber bracelet gifted from one of the children at the hospice, 6-year-old Sonny Pope-Saunders.

Ahead, where to buy Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge's complete summer gardening outfit.
