The Duchess of Cambridge went for understated florals on an official visit to the Singapore Botanic Gardens earlier today.

For the first day of the Duke and Duchess’ nine-day Asian tour, she opted for a bespoke Jenny Packham silk twill De Gournay dress featuring hand-painted orchids.

Although this might not be my favourite look on the Duchess, I understand why she chose it. Singapore is famous for its orchids and Kate was at the gardens to see an exotic flower dedicated to Princes Diana. 

The kimono-inspired bodice is also a nod to the Duke and Duchesses Jubilee tour plans.

Kate finished her look with pearl earring and nude L.K. Bennett pumps.
