It’s part of the store’s Spring range, meaning it could be coming Down Under quite soon.

Made using fibre which is obtained “from wood grown in more sustainably managed forests”, the dress is part of the shop’s Join Life collection.

It features a v-neck design, with short sleeves, a lace trim, elastic waistband and ruffled hem.

Kate Middleton was launching a photography project, called ‘Hold Still’ on the KensingtonRoyal Instagram page in partnership with the National Portrait Gallery.

From the 31,000 submissions made since May to ‘Hold Still’, the Duchess of Cambridge selected the final 100 images to be featured in a digital exhibition next month.

The royal mother-of-three admitted she had been delighted by the “unique” responses to the concept, which aims to reflect what life was like for a range of British people during the height of the pandemic.

She made the comment in a recent video call with her fellow judges, where she could be seen donning the v-neck khaki green print Zara dress.

The duchess, 38, spoke to England’s chief nursing officer Ruth May, director of the National Portrait Gallery Nicholas Cullinan, writer and poet Lemn Sissay and photographer Maryam Wahid.

She said: “I just want to reflect on, I suppose how we first came to think of the idea and why we chose to do this photography project.

"I think we all really felt, and I particularly felt, really strongly that I wanted to try and create a portrait of the nation that sort of captures the fears and the hopes and the feelings of the nation at this really extraordinary time, as a record I suppose for years to come.

"The quality of the images has been extraordinary really and the poignancy and the stories behind the images I think have been equally moving as well."

"The thing that I suppose has struck me going through all these images is just how different and diverse everyone’s experience of COVID-19 has been. No one story is the same, everyone’s is unique."

Captioning a post on Instagram, the duchess added: "I’ve been so overwhelmed by the public’s response to Hold Still, the quality of the images has been extraordinary, and the poignancy and the stories behind the images have been equally as moving as well.

"So I wanted to say a huge thank you to everyone who has entered and taken part. And a big thank you to my fellow judges.

“I hugely appreciate the time and dedication that they have shown towards the project."
