Kate Middleton wore the stunning black dress with a floral print.

The Duchess rarely wears the colour black, however fans will recognise this garment.

The Alexander McQueen dress from the 2017 BAFTAS as been modified to feature cap sleeves instead of the off-the-shoulder design from two years ago.

The dress is a modified version of the Tiered Violet Jacquard Dress from the Fall 2016 collection.

The silk dress is now sold out, but has been listed on resale site Lyst for $4,659.00 or £3,567.86.

Kate also opted for the very same clutch she wore for her BAFTAS 2017 appearance.

It is the Heart-clasp Satin Box Clutch, which sold for £1659 on Matches Fashion.

Kate Middleton appeared to wear her Kiki McDonugh morganite double drop earrings. She also wore the pieces to her sister Pippa Middleton’s wedding.

They are very similar to a pair from the company’s special edition line that cost £5,900.

Kate Middleton’s earring collection from Kiki McDonough is worth over £47,000, Express.co.uk revealed recently. 

Kate was not the only royal at the National Portrait Gallery in London tonight.

Princess Beatrice attended with her boyfriend. 

The daughter of Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson met Edoardo late last year. It is thought that she confirmed she was dating the 34-year-old while at a party in December, having reportedly started dating in September that year.

However, the pair are said to have been family friends for many years.

He is the stepson of a former aide to David Cameron whose funeral was attended by Prince Andrew, Sarah Ferguson and Beatrice.

Edoardo owns a property development company that creates “exceptional homes” in the capital.

How did Kate Middleton become a royal?

Early life

Kate Middleton, or Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, was born on 9 January 1982 at the Royal Berkshire Hospital, Reading, England.

She was born to Michael and Carole Middleton, a former flight dispatcher and air hostess. The couple founded a party supplies company, Party Pieces, in 1987 – now estimated to be worth £30 million.

Kate has a younger sister Pippa Matthews, 34, and a younger brother James Middleton, 31.

Education

Kate and her family moved to Amman, Jordan, in 1984, where the future Duchess was educated at an English-speaking nursery school.

After moving back to Berkshire the family sent Kate to private school, St Andrews School. She went on to briefly study at Downe House before moving onto Marlborough College where she boarded.

For university the young Kate attended the University of St Andrews in Fife, Scotland. Here she was awarded an undergraduate MA (2:1 Hons) in history of art.

Relationship with Prince William

Kate met Prince William when they were both studying at St Andrews, and both living in St Salvator’s Hall. Famously, William reportedly took a fancy to Kate after she wore a see-through dress during a fashion show.

In 2003 the couple began dating and lived together during their second year of university.

The couple split in April 2007, however, in October they were back together.

Wedding

Prince William proposed to Kate Middleton with his late mother Princess Diana’s engagement ring in October 2010. The couple were holidaying in Kenya at the time.

On 29 April 2011 they married at Westminster Abbey with a whopping 26 million watching the event live.

Kate wore an Alexander McQueen dress worth a reported £250,000 on the big day.

Kate assumed the title “Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge” and also become the Duchess of Cambridge on the day.
