Kate is a huge fan of luxury fashion chain LK Bennett and viewers said it was “perfect” that Holly chose a dress designed by the brand for the occasion.

“I love that you are wearing LK Bennett when you have the beautiful duchess on today,” said one viewer.

“Perfect touch,” they added.

Indeed, Kate has often been seen in the London-based designer.

She’s a huge fan of its dresses, coats and clutch bags.

Not to mention shoes as it’s where Kate gets her famous wedges and nude platform courts.

“Dress goals,” said one Holly fan as the presenter uploaded her daily #HWstyle shot.
