The item is said to have been specially made for fashion-savvy Kate, which is thought to have taken about six weeks to create.The 30-year-old paired the dress with a pair of black heels and a hat we've definitely seen before.

Kate has worn the formal Whiteley number twice before: first at the Epsom Derby last June and again to a wedding last month.

Kate was with husband Prince William, 30, for the ceremony, where he was being installed as a Knight in the Order Of The Thistle, which is Scotland's highest honour.

The pair travelled up to Scotland following an exciting day watching Andy Murray at Wimbledon yesterday.Life as a royal can be pretty busy, can't it?
