Kate Middleton steps out in a sunny yellow dress

Even royals love a good sale.

The Princess of Wales stepped out today for her first solo engagement since Queen Elizabeth’s death last month, wearing an autumnal mustard yellow dress by British high street brand Karen Millen – and it’s on sale at an extra discount only today.

In the label’s “Structured Crepe Forever Pleat” dress ($300, plus an extra 15% off with code DRESS; originally $376), the princess, 40, visited Royal Surrey County Hospital in Guildford, England, to see how the facility supports mothers and babies.

Featuring a notched collar and puff sleeves, the gown finishes with a sharp pleated skirt and a matching belt – and if yellow isn’t your thing, it’s available in black, white, blush and baby blue.

This is the first time we’ve seen the princess in a Karen Millen design since she married Prince William, but in her pre-royal life she was photographed wearing various pieces from the shop.

She added navy suede accessories, wore heels from Gianvito Rossi ($725) and a matching clutch from Emmy London ($420), but broke out some new jewels with Emily Mortimer’s “Hera” diamond earrings ($894).

Today’s sunny yellow look marks a return to colorful dresses for the princess after wearing black for a while during the period of mourning for Queen Elizabeth II, who died on September 8 – last week she wore black trousers and a black sweater together. wearing a cheery red coat for her first visit to Wales since her new title.

Middleton added a medical mask as she entered the hospital to visit the facility and meet mothers and babies, and had the opportunity to cradle a premature newborn while talking to a new mother about her experience with the treatment in the Special Care Baby Unit.

The Princess of Wales, who serves as the patroness of the Maternal Mental Health Alliance, also met staffers responsible for the pre- and post-natal mental health of new mothers at the hospital.

Today’s visit was also a natural extension of Middleton’s involvement with The Royal Foundation Center for Early Childhood, which she launched in 2021.
