The Duchess of Cambridge has designed some of her own clothes, including a dress she wore on the recent tour of the South Pacific.

She wore the yellow broderie anglaise sundress, which was commissioned by the Queen’s tailors, based on Catherine’s own design.

A source told Grazia magazine: “This dress was a piece commissioned by Kate.

“She likes to have a few pieces that are one-offs and that she has had some input in, so she asked the queen's tailors for some help.

"They worked on it together after she went to them with ideas of colour, fabric and style.”

The Duchess is regularly praised for her fashion choices and was recently named one of the best-dressed royals by Vanity Fair.

They said: “The former Kate Middleton is prim, proper, and infuriatingly dazzling, thanks to a year-round tan, bouncing blow-outs, some better version of Bobbi Brown than the rest of us have, and a decidedly un-English smile.

“For big events, the mice and bluebirds put Kate in the best British designers as befits a future queen of England, including Alexander McQueen, Christopher Kane, Burberry, and country staple Barbour.”
