Anatomy of a look: Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge

DRESS FOR SUCCESS: Royal rules are slightly more conservative than most which is why Kate gets top marks for balancing a sheer fabric with an appropriate neckline, sleeve, and hem length. ‘Cersei’ silk printed midi dress, L.K. Bennett, €495

IT’S A SHOE IN: Kate’s standard issue nude heels get some well-deserved rest, opting instead for a single-sole court in smokey grey. A twist on a classic — perfect for the colder months and darker colourways. ‘Tess’ smoke grey courts, L.K. Bennett, €225

ROYAL RING: ‘The Kate Effect’ had its way with these Kiki McDonough ‘Lauren’ yellow gold pave diamond leaf earrings. Damn! Instead, this a fitting doppelganger for her engagement ring from Irish designer Yvonne Ross. Forged ‘Halo’ diamond ring with blue sapphire, Yvonne Ross, €7,800
