Princess Charlotte is mostly pictured in pretty dresses but she also stepped out in a JoJo Maman Bébé  blue and white stripy Breton top (£12) when she took part in the Clap for Carers last March and that style has been given a spring update in the form of a dress complete with duck applique (opens in new tab), RRP £20.

The website states, 'The floral smocked dress will ensure your little one looks the part on every special occasion this season. Available in comfy, soft seersucker cotton, it features smocking to the chest and beautiful floral embroidery to the skirt. We love seersucker fabric for its cooling properties - the raised design can help increase airflow, making it ideal for hot weather.'

And the Pastel Ditsy Print smocked dress is a brand new style for this season, created in our bestselling print, and we hope this will be another bestseller from the collection."
