The Duchess choose a bespoke dress by Jenny Packham. It was noted on social media that Kate’s dress was very reminiscent of the black Jenny Packham piece the Duchess wore on the tour of New Zealand all the way back in 2014, with a jewelled fern motif at the shoulder. However, the brand has said it is not their dress, The black long sleeve midi dress has a boat neckline, cinched waistline with a velvet belt and a very gradual a-line flared skirt, just slightly longer in length than the dresses shown in the image below.
