Michelle Obama greets Prince Harry in designer loved by Kate Middleton, Prabal Gurung

FLOTUS recycles floral prom dress for young royal's tour of the US

Michelle Obama appeared to have taken a leaf out of Kate Middleton's style file last night, as she welcomed Prince Harry to the US in a recycled Prabal Gurung dress.

Michelle Obama welcomed Prince Harry to the US in a recycled Prabal Gurung dress from the resort 2013 collection …The FLOTUS was on fine fashion form in the 50's style floral prom dress from the resort 2013 collection - a look she first debuted in 2012 - as she hosted the royal on the first day of his tour of the US.

Reworking her floral frock with nude courts and stacked bangles, Michelle was every inch the stylish host as Prince Harry arrived at the White House.

But she's not the only one to have the talented designer on her fashion radar, as a whole host of stars including K Middy have previously stepped out in his designs.

The Duchess of Cambridge made a splash in a 3/4-length sleeved purple shift dress from the American-based talent on a visit to Singapore last year.

Kate Middleton is also a fan of the American-based designer Prabal Gurung [Rex]In what has been described as one of the most fashion-forward looks from Kate, she wowed in the graphic print frock made up of vivid shades of violet.

While we're yet to see hers being recycled (we'll hold out until after the royal baby is born), Michelle meanwhile has whipped hers out at the perfect time seeing as florals are a huge SS13 trend.

Making sure to let her dress be the focus of her look last night, Michelle added drop earrings and nude glossed lips - with her shoulder-length bob in tousled waves.

Michelle Obama said it was an 'honour' to host Prince Harry as he arrived at a reception honouring military mothers …She joined the young prince at a reception in honour of military mothers and their children, where hundreds of screaming women greeted him on arrival.

The Prince was the surprise guest at the White House tea reception, which meant more whoops of delight greeted him when he made his way inside.

Seemingly unfazed by all the attention, Prince Harry earned top praise from Michelle at the event, who said it was "an honour" to have him in attendance.
