Kate Middleton just wore Boden for the second time in a week

Late last year, the Duchess of Cambridge was spotted in a blue Boden cardigan for a video call with NHS workers and, this month, she’s turned to the trusty high-street brand again for both a surprise appearance on International Women’s Day and her first in-person appearance since 2020.

Sitting down for a video call with Jasmine Harrison, the youngest woman to row solo across the Atlantic, Kate congratulated Jasmine on her record-breaking 3,000-mile row at the sweet age of just 21.

Of course, it wasn’t long before fans identified the pastel pink blouse that Kate was wearing as the Dora Tie Neck Blouse from Boden.

While the pink colourway she was seen sporting is now low in stock on the Boden website – blame the famous ‘Kate Effect’ for that – the blouse is still available in a grey squirrel print and floral paisley.

At £80, the Dora Tie Neck Blouse is a more affordable entry-level option if you want to emulate Kate’s wardrobe. Team the flattering, lightweight blouse with jeans with the bow loose and relaxed at the weekend or fashion the tie neck in a neat bow and pair with tailored trousers for the office.

From the looks of things, Kate was also sporting her favourite gold and pink Missoma earrings which she’s been spotted wearing several times and can we blame her, they’re beautiful and fortunately, still in stock on the Missoma website.

Now, for her first in-person appearance since 2020, Kate has opted for the Hambledon Scallop Jumper in Azalea from Boden; the second time she has worn the label in the space of a week.

With delicate scallop detailing to the neckline and cuffs and blended from merino wool the jumper is feminine but cosy and costs just £65.

Whether you go for Kate’s pink colourway or one of the other five colour options, we suspect it’s only a matter of time before the ever-present Kate Effect hits hard, so we recommend that you get yours while you still can.
