The dress featured a printed chain-link design, which Beckham described as “1970s-inspired” on Instagram. The Duchess of Sussex appeared to be wearing a bespoke version of the dress, though a similar design is available on Moda Operandi for $US1,850.

She paired the dress with a cream coat and matching pillbox hat, while a pair of dark-green heels and a matching clutch added a pop of colour.
