The Duchess of Cambridge saved perhaps her most stylish look for last as she departed the Bahamas on the final leg of their royal tour of the Caribbean.

Kate and Prince William have spent eight days touring Belize, Jamaica and the Bahamas, meeting local people, businesses and cultural institutions, in celebration of the Queen's Platinum Jubilee

The duchess arrived at Lynden Pindling International Airport wearing a yellow printed Alessandra Rich dress.

The 1980s-inspired style features a flatting hip peplum, exaggerated puff sleeves and a ladylike midi-length pencil skirt, and is cinched in at the waist with a bejewelled belt.

She accessorised her dress - which is still available to buy online - with classic white Gianvito Rossi court shoes, Patrick Mavros quartz and diamond earrings, and a white clutch bag.

Kate has worn London-based designer Alessandra Rich previously - notably during a visit to the V&A Museum in 2021, and during a trip to Ireland in 2020.

The duchess decided to almost exclusively champion London-based or British designers during her tour of the Caribbean, turning to old favourites like Alexander McQueen, Emilia Wickstead, Roksanda, Phillipa Lepley and Jenny Packham, as well as younger brands like Rixo, The Vampire's Wife and Self-Portrait.

But the most striking theme to emerge from Kate's tour wardrobe was her use of colour. The royal well and truly embraced dopamine dressing for the eight-day long trip, stepping out in a wardrobe of bright, mood-boosting shades of every colour of the rainbow - from hot pink to royal blue, canary yellow, mint green and deep emerald.
