KATE Middleton was seen wearing a protective face covering for the first time this week – and opted for a £15 floral design.
The Duchess of Cambridge, 38, donned a ditsy print face mask by London-based brand Amaia as she helped to unpack donations at Baby Basics UK in Sheffield.
During the event, Kate put on a floral face mask, a move which shows how the monarchy are adhering to coronavirus guidelines like the rest of the country.
She wore a style made from a Liberty London printed fabric called “pepper Liberty”.
Demonstrating the Kate Middleton effect, the floral mask has since sold out in all sizes but large.
According to the website, Kate’s mask is double layer and made from 100 per cent cotton layer with an extra layer of a 50gr TNT filter.

The Duchess of Cambridge recycled a £1,850 white Suzannah dress for the engagement on Tuesday that she had first been pictured wearing at Wimbledon in 2019.
However, in an effort to mix up the look, the royal mum-of-three removed the black leather belt she had originally worn with the outfit and added a pair of formal heeled court shoes.
The duchess' tour of the centre highlighted her efforts spearheading a donation drive which has seen shops like John Lewis, Marks & Spencer, Sainsbury's and Tesco give more than 10,000 new goods to baby banks across the country.
Kate described how she wept after a trip to a baby bank, which provides essential items to mothers in need like nappies and infant clothes, as she visited a similar project in Sheffield.
Commenting on how she cried after returning home from the baby bank visit, Kate said: "It can get very emotional.
"I remember a couple of the families I met from King's Lynn and I went home and literally burst into tears, their stories were so moving.
"The struggles they have gone through, the bravery they have shown … in extraordinary circumstances.
"Helping their families through extraordinary times."
Baby banks have proved to be a lifeline for many parents during the coronavirus crisis, but have found their services under increasing pressure due to demand and because they cannot accept second hand donations.
