Oh, it’s almost too much to handle. Today marks Barack Obama’s and First Lady Michelle’s first state visit to the UK since his presidency, and who should they bump into on their trip? Only the newly wed Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

Naturally, we’re all about what the girls were wearing, so what, we ask, does one style icon wear to meet another?

Well, in the case of Kate Middleton, the high street (where else?). The Duchess wore a fitted cream bandage dress from Reiss for her appointment with fashion’s First Lady, featuring a box neckline, asymmetric overlays on the skirt and a panelled band across the waist.

It’s classic Kate, and it’s available to buy online for £175.

It’ll sell-out if you’re not quick, such is The Kate Effect, so we suggest you snap it up pronto if you’re a sucker for the royal’s style.

Update: Michelle Obama chose not wear a British label and instead represented her home country in an ice blue embroidered dress by American designer Barbara Tfank.
