Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, is having a very stylish fall!

The former Kate Middleton met privately with a group of teens at Kensington Palace earlier this month, and rocked a printed dress with chic autumnal vibes.

It’s still available to shop online from British retailer John Lewis for now. But now that the duchess has been spotted wearing it, it will probably sell out soon.

She paired the retro-inspired shift with chocolate-brown pumps, a simple watch and her signature blowout.

Prince William also looked dapper in a navy suit as the royal couple met with a group of 10 inspiring teens, honored as Radio 1’s Teen Heroes of 2019.

“Now in its tenth year, @bbcradio1’s Teen Awards is the biggest teen event in the pop music calendar and shines a light on some of the UK’s most inspirational teens, seeing them crowned Teen Heroes of 2019 in front of an audience of 14-17 year-olds,” Kensington Palace wrote on Instagram.

The private meeting happened earlier this month, possibly before the royal couple embarked on their tour of Pakistan.

The patterned midi dress is a go-to fall look for the duchess. She recently wore a long-sleeve printed dress with a similar silhouette when she and Prince William accompanied Princess Charlotte to her first day of primary school.

The duchess also wore a rose-patterned Emilia Wickstead dress to an outdoor event in September, reminding us that florals aren’t just for spring.
