In the sweet photos, the Duchess of Cambridge is wearing a gorgeous blue polka-dot dress. Get all the details here.

The British royals are taking their style cues from the Swedes. Prince Charles's family all wore shades of blue and white for a recent portrait shoot in honor of the Prince of Wales's 70th birthday. (If you recall, the Swedish royal are big fans of the color-coordinated photo session.)

Duchess Kate, who is holding little Prince Louis in the series of photos appears to be wearing a blue polka-dotted Alessandra Rich dress, similar to the one Meghan Markle's close friend Abigail Spencer wore to the royal wedding in May.

While Spencer paired the dress with a black belt and handbag, nude heels, and a netted fascinator, Kate's look was relatively unadorned. She wore her hair down in loose curls, sans-hat, and wasn't carrying a handbag in any of the pictures.

The style, which was part of Rich's Spring / Summer 2018 collection has since sold out, but it reportedly retailed for over $1,400.

Kate's sister Pippa also wore a similar design, albeit in a different color, to Prince Louis's christening.

The public got its first look at Duchess Kate in this dress when one of the portraits from the photo shoot was revealed during the BBC documentary Prince, Son and Heir: Charles at 70.

And Clarence House just released two additional full family portraits in the hours leading up to Prince Charles's milestone.

But these newly released pictures are only one way the royal family is celebrating the Prince of Wales this week. Tomorrow, on his actual birthday, guests including Will and Kate and Meghan and Harry, along with members of other royal families from across Europe are expected to toast Britain's heir apparent at a banquet at Buckingham Palace.
