In Royal News Other Than #Megxit, Kate Middleton Wore Yet Another Dress From The High Street

She's done it again!

She was attending an event in honour of the UK-Africa Investment Summit.

These past two weeks have been all about Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's news that they are stepping back from royal life—and in a big way. However, Prince William managed to take over the spotlight on Monday night, when he hosted his first-ever solo reception at Buckingham Palace.

Naturally, Kate Middleton joined Prince William at the reception for the U.K.-Africa investment royal summit, and she chose an elegant red dress that pretty easily pulled focus away from not only #Megxit but William too. Lace and sequins aside, what really makes this dress spectacular is the fact it comes straight from the high street. While it's not inexpensive as such (Kate's dress cost over €500), it is from an affordable brand she's never worn before—Needle & Thread.

Kate paired the red sparkly dress with a pair of red Gianvito Rossi heels, a Jenny Packham clutch bag and a pair of earrings by Soru.

This is of course not the first time the Duchess has worn pieces from the high street. For years she's worn everything from blazers to ballgowns from the high-street brand and always manages to make them look super expensive. Dressed down she's known to mix up her wardrobe with more affordable pieces from the high street—she's worn Warehouse& Other Stories and loves to wear a Zara blazer (same, Kate, same). And just last week, she wore a checked dress from Zara (alas, already sold out) under an Alexander McQueen coat and with a pair of black block heels and a black top-handle bag. 

And in typical royal fashion, the red sequinned dress Kate wore last night has sold out but keep scrolling to shop Needle & Thread dresses below (including a black, shorter version of the one Kate wore).
