Princess Charlotte would have LOVED pregnant mum Kate’s ethereal princess dress last night

Princess Charlotte would probably have given a royal seal of approval to mum Kate Middleton last night had she seen the Duchess step out in a stunning pink gown from Alexander McQueen.

The pregnant royal, who is expecting her third child in April, looked sensational for dinner at the royal palace in Oslo on Thursday, but it was her winning combination of sparkles and pink that would have won over her daughter.

Prince William recently revealed that his little girl ‘loves sparkly things’ so she would have been delighted with the crystal flower detailing on the neckline of Kate’s gown.

And as a bonus, the soft blush colour must have ticked all the right boxes for the little princess.

Kate revealed last November that her daughter is a huge fan of all things pink during a visit to Hornsey Road Children’s Centre in North London.

Kate shared the sweet fact about Princess Charlotte whilst chatting to six-year-old Nevaeh at the end of her visit.

‘She asked me what my favourite colour is,’ the six-year-old said after meeting the Duchess. ‘I said it was pink and she said that’s Charlotte’s favourite colour too.’

Princess Charlotte seemingly shares a love of pink with her mum, as Kate has repeatedly chosen pink outfits to wear for official engagements.

Kate and Prince William were invited to an official dinner in their honour at the Norwegian royal palace in Oslo on Thursday night. After spending the day with Norway’s Prince Haakon and Princess Mette-Marit, the two couples dined alongside King Harald and Queen Sonja at a lavish dinner at the palace.

The event was also attended by members of government, leaders in business and serving members and veterans from the Norwegian Armed Forces. Both King Harald and Prince William gave speeches at the glamorous dinner.
