Kate Middleton stuns in a custom Roksanda dress as she arrives Jamaica

The Duchess of Cambridge proved her fashion prowess once again when arriving in Jamaica with her husband Prince William.

Kate, 40, donned a custom Roksanda dress in the yellow of the Jamaican flag when touching down in the country alongside the Duke of Cambridge, 39.

The bespoke piece, featuring a wrap top and billowing skirt, appears to have been inspired by the £1,095 Brigitte midi dress in marigold by the designer label. Kate’s has been designed with short sleeves, but a sleeveless version is available.

Showcasing her love of diplomatic dressing again with the yellow garment, the mother-of-three teamed the statement piece with Aquazzura white heels, featuring gold stripe cut-outs.

Looking effortlessly elegant, Kate kept her hair in a ponytail and added a touch more glitz to her outfit with a pair of dazzling golden earrings, as well as a Salvatore Ferragamo clutch.

When setting off for Jamaica from Belize earlier today, the royal sported a vintage red Yves Saint Laurent jacket she bought while studying at the University of St Andrews, where she met Prince William two decades ago.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge arrived in Jamaica hours after a demonstration against their presence in the country took to the streets.

The couple were given a full ceremonial arrival at Kingston’s Norman Manley International Airport as they embarked on a three-day tour to the country to mark the Queen’s historic Platinum jubilee

They were greeted by a line up of dignitaries including Lisa Hanna, former Miss World 1993, who is now a politician from the People’s National Party who are calling for a referendum to abolish the monarchy.

Their arrival came as up to 100 people demonstrated outside of the British High Commission in Kingston at having a UK head of state and the issue of Britain’s historic role in slavery.

A royal aide said that the duke and duchess were ‘aware of the protest’.

It is understood that William is set to publicly address the issue of slavery in a key-note speech he is due to give at a dinner thrown by the Governor General, the Queen’s official representative on the island.

The Queen last visited Jamaica, her fourth largest realm, in 2002.

Their arrival came as Kensington Palace released an extraordinary ‘holiday-style’ video taken of the couple diving on Sunday afternoon in Belize.

It shows William and Kate in full scuba gear swimming with a metre-long nurse shark.

It was shot by celebrity photographer Matt Porteous who is accompanying them on their entire eight-day trip of the Caribbean, which already includes a full PR team and social media manager.

Kensington Palace spokesman said he was there at the request of the couple, who were paying for him privately.

The video was shot on Sunday at South Water Caye directly afternoon above the famed Belize Barrier Reed.

The couple were apparently invited by the Belize government to highlight conservation efforts and were hosted by diving instructor Captain Edward ‘Gravy’ Betancourt and his daughter Marisha.

A royal source said that despite the glossy nature of the video, the couple were keen to highlight conservation in Belize which has the second biggest barrier reef in the world.

A palace source said they had a ‘brilliant time’ and were delighted to see nurse sharks. Mr Porteous is renowned for his underwater photography.
