THE DUCHESS DONS ORLA: The Duchess of Cambridge donned an Orla Kiely shirtdress Tuesday for a visit she and the Duke of Cambridge made to London’s Only Connect charity. The brown dress, printed with a dove motif, last made an appearance in early 2012, when Kate visited a charity in Oxford.

The royal couple visited Only Connect, based in London’s King’s Cross, to learn more about its work tackling crime prevention in north London. The charity carries out programs to support prisoners, ex-offenders and young people at risk of offending. Lady Jane Fellowes, William’s aunt and the sister of Diana, Princess of Wales, is one of the charity’s trustees.

During the tour, one young ex-offender involved with the charity presented Kate with a personalized onesie for the couple’s son Prince George, who she noted is “growing very fast.”
