Britain's Duchess of Cambridge wore a £46 dress for her first official family pictures.

The pretty royal and her husband Prince William have shared snaps of themselves with newborn son Prince George Alexander Louis.

Catherine has reaffirmed her love of the high street, opting for a fuchsia dress by maternity brand Séraphine. The fashionable wrap dress is a style steal at just £46.

It's the same style as a printed number the 31-year-old brunette showed off in June when she was spotted in a car in London. Séraphine's dress is flattering on pregnant women and new mothers alike, as it sports ruching around the bust and a forgiving loose fit on the stomach.

The duchess teamed the block-colour dress with small stud earrings and flowing wavy hair.

William sat next to his wife, looking smart in a blue shirt and jeans, while little George was wrapped in a crisp white G.H. Hurt and Son Ltd shawl.

All the way through her pregnancy Catherine looked stylish and it seems she has no plans to stop now she's a mom.

“Kate bought a breast-feeding [top] that will look great with skinny jeans,” Séraphine's founder, Cecile Reinaud, recently told People.

Rather than hiring a professional photographer, the pictures were taken by Catherine's father Michael Middleton and shot at their family home in Berkshire, UK.
