Kate Middleton yesterday prompted the crashing of Reiss's website, after choosing their 'Shola' bandage dress for a trip to Buckingham Palace to meet the Obamas. K-Midds wore the beige version of the high-street number, which retails at £175.
Reiss's founder told The Daily Mail, 'We are thrilled that Kate continues to be a customer of Reiss, and that she has chosen one of our dresses for such an important occasion.’
Over at Buckingham Palance, a source described the discussion between Middleton and super-brain Michelle Obama as 'a typical girly chat'. Groan. According to the eagle-eyed bystander, ‘Like most women Mrs Obama wanted to know all about it. She and Catherine had a good chat.’
