The Duchess of Cambridge excelled at diplomatic dressing today as she stepped out in a full green outfit for her first official visit to the Republic of Ireland.

Kate Middleton, 38, wore a £1,567 designer dress by Alessandra Rich, a brand loved both by Kate and her younger sister Pippa, 36, as she arrived at Dublin Airport alongside Prince William, 37, this afternoon. 

The mother-of-three paired the silk midi dress with a chic forest green Catherine Walker coat and a matching pair of heels and clutch-bag. 

The royal complimented her stylish outfit with a sophisticated black velvet hairband, an accessory which has become a fast-favourite of the Duchess over the past year.

The bold green dress is perfect for the diplomatic visit, with a demure length, pleated detailing and a peplum waist which Kate looks to carries it off with her usual style. 

Unfortunately for royal fans, the dress, which perfectly complimented Prince William's emerald green tie, is sold out on Net-a-Porter.

The Duchess paired the outfit with an emerald green coat from royal favourite Catherine Walker, complementing the colour blocked ensemble with green high heels and a green clutch bag. 

She added a touch of glitz to the ensemble with a new pair of glamorous Asprey daisy earrings, which feature diamond petals set in 18ct white gold. 

The Duchess later removed her coat to reveal the stunning green gown, which comes with a pricetag of £1,567
