While we've enjoyed seeing the Royal couple on their tour of New Zealand and Australia with their (very cute) son, Prince George, there's only one thing that really stole the show for us: Kate's outfits.

The Duchess of Cambridge is known for her style sense and this trip has been no different. She managed to cram in over 25 incredible outfits for her overseas adventure and rather amazingly, she didn't have a dresser with her on tour. Clearly she's an impeccable planner and packer (we could use those tips for our next holiday).

Over the course of her three-week visit, Kate wore a range of dresses by British designers, such as Jenny Packham, Roksanda Ilincic (banana dress anyone?) and her beloved Alexander McQueen, the fashion house behind her exquisite wedding dress. Other creations came from Tory Burch, Erdem and Diane von Furstenburg.

True to form, the Duchess opted for a couple of high-street outfits, including a Hobbs dress and a breton top by Me+Em, which sold out immediately, thanks to the 'Kate effect'.

Take a look at more of her outfits below, from the start of the tour until the end.
