8 Kate flower power moments

The Duchess of Cambridge is set to visit the Chelsea Flower Show this week. It will be Kate's first visit to the event, a bit of a royal institution, and she and William are set to attend later on today. But will the duchess be channeling a bit of flower power as she makes this royal debut? In honour of Kate's first flower show foray, here are eight floral moments from her famous wardrobe.
During her visit to Bhutan earlier this year, Kate wore a bright orange poppy print dress for an evening reception. The flower is the emblem of her host country and the frock looks fabulous. Real flower power from the Duchess of Cambridge here.
On a visit to Australia in 2014, the Duchess of Cambridge wore this fabulous white dress with bright blue poppy print. The L.K. Bennett piece sold out, of course, and has been one of Kate's most popular ever looks. As it's not been seen for a while, could Chelsea mark its reappearance?
Kate chose another unusual evening take on flower power for a reception for Team GB Olympic and Paralympic medallists in October 2012. The black dress with white flowers is rather striking and modern and was spot on for this celebration of sport.
This pale pink flower print has got to be a bit of a favourite for a rewear at the Chelsea Flower Show. Kate chose it for a trip to the Singapore Botanical Gardens on her Diamond Jubilee tour in 2012. It's pretty, pale and delicate, the flowers aren't overwhelming and it's not been seen in recent times so could well be the pick of Kate's Chelsea debut.
