If you were thinking about how you might be able to add a bit of sparkle to your weekend, you might be interested in the news that Lady Amelia Windsor (third cousin of Princes William and Harry and currently 39th in line to the throne) has listed some pieces from her very glamorous wardrobe on By Rotation in order to raise money for charity.

This means that you could spend your Saturday twirling around the house in a glamorous gown or even take Amelia's Miu Miu bag with you on your daily walks next week. Perhaps you have a Zoom party coming up? Or possibly you've planned an actual (fingers crossed) IRL party for when lockdown lifts. Either way, this is a great way to find something brilliant to wear without having to buy something new.

100% of rental proceeds will go to the Henry Dickens Community Centre, which was specifically chosen by Amelia. 'I discovered the incredible work the Henry Dickens Community centre does while watching the Grenfell tribute film during lockdown,' she says. 'They run activities for local children after school and in the holidays that provide a space to bring people together and support families.'

By Rotation is one of the rental apps that has seen amazing success over the past year as we all try to marry a love of fashion and clothes with a need to be more sustainable. Even Selfridges has started offering a rental service via Hurr, cementing the fact that renting clothes is no longer a novelty – it's fast becoming our future.

'I love the fact that you can share a piece of clothing with a community and have different adventures in it and it can give happiness to lots of people,' says Amelia. She has listed Ganni skirts, Lulu Guinness shoes and Tommy Hilfiger trousers, which are available to borrow from as little as £4.

'It's been such a pleasure getting to know Amelia since launching By Rotation,' says Eshita Kabra-Davies, the app's founder. 'We naturally bonded over our mission to make the fashion industry for sustainable and available to all. She has been so generous to list some amazing items on our app which I'm sure will be snapped up for the festive season and all for a good cause too.'
