Describing her inspiration, Anna said: ‘When I was pregnant three years ago, I wanted to look as good as Kate Middleton when she gave birth to Princess Charlotte.

‘There are a lot of pictures of her online and she often wears casual looks that can be worn everyday.

‘I love her casual look because you can’t wear a gown or a long dress often but jeans and a fresh blazer are very wearable.

‘Most of the items I’ve gotten from vintage shops – it’s very durable.

‘She uses a lot of basic items like white shirts that are easy to reuse so it’s quite simple to recreate outfits.
