Hello! Magazine

Kate Middleton is something of a pro when it comes to hosting picnics, from Hampton Court Palace to the boot of her car, and there’s only one place we bet Duchess Kate will be heading to, to stock up on picnic essentials – Cath Kidston.

Both Princess Charlotte and big bro Prince George have been spotted many times wearing the British brand; Prince George wore an adorable Cath Kidston toy soldier tank top worn by in an official snap back in 2014 and it was a pony print Cath Kidston oilcloth backpack that Princess Charlotte carried on her first day at nursery.

And Cath Kidston’s summer collection has royal picnic written all over it. There’s everything you need for the chicest of al fresco lunches in the park, from Insta-worthy picnic blankets to the cutest kids’ clothing they’ll love as much as you do.
