Get Kate’s Ankle Boots
The Duchess of Cambridge was out and about yesterday with her husband and Prince Harry for the graduation ceremony of more than 150 Coach Core apprentices.
If, like us, you spotted her chic ankle boots you might be interested in how to get your hands on a pair.
The exact boots Kate wore were from Russell & Bromley, they are the top image.
They cost £295 and can be purchased HERE.
But if you want to channel her look without the hefty price tag, we think this £49.50 pair from Marks & Spencer (bottom pair) are pretty great.
The zip detail is slightly more prominent but they are still very stylish.
The small heel is enough to add a bit of height without causing too much discomfort. Plus, the M&S Insolia technology redistributes the weight away form the balls of your feet to reduce pressure and increase ankle stability.

Kate’s floral tribute to Diana
We’ve found not one, but two gorgeous dresses inspired by Kate’s rainy day green floral dress!
The Duchess donned the stunning Prada number to tour the White Garden at Kensington Palace. But given that it’s designer, it’s also accompanied by a hefty £1420 price tag too!
But fear not, as these copies will get you Kate’s stunning floor-length look for a fraction of the price. On the right is a £69 dress by Studio by Preen, available at Debenhams. It’s got the same floral look with a similar light green/blue colour – perfect for the remaining summer months.
But if you’re looking for an even more affordable way to steal Kate’s style, the dress on the left is a stunning find from high street giant Peacocks – priced at only £25!
It’s not yet available online, but will be soon, and can be found in most stores! It’s a shorter option that Kate’s original, but paired with some thick black tights or jeans, it’ll be a brilliant choice for those smart/casual events.
A great transitional piece, this Duchess inspired dress will take you well into autumn – just pair with some boots!
Kate’s Staple Maroon Coat
The Duchess of Cambridge was spotted being driven to church near Balmoral this weekend in her classic maroon coat.
The rich brown midi length coat from Hobbs is a firm favourite of Kate’s. It comes with a hefty price tag of £369, but she has really got the most of it since she first wore it in 2011. The last day Kate showed off this item was for Christmas Day last year.
New Look have a fantastic look-a-like in stock at the moment, which costs just £34.99. To really complete the look, wear a thin belt around the coat as this will help nip you in at the waist.

Kate’s sister-of-the-bride look
Kate wore a bespoke dress by her go to designer, Alexander McQueen for her Pippa’s wedding at the weekend.
The dusty pink colour is perfect for summer and the long sleeves are great for Britain’s unpredictable weather.
Although no look-a-like dresses have hit the shelves yet, we found this pink, floaty dress by Biba from House of Fraser which is pretty close. And at £69 we know it costs much less than Kate’s!
The long sleeves and mid-length are very similar to Kate’s designer dress and the front ruffle will give a flattering finish.

Who can forget the dress (and loved-up smile!) that Kate wore the day her engagement to Prince William was announced to the world? Everyone wanted to get a look at the ring (formerly belonging to Prince William’s mother Princess Diana) and so Kate wore a navy blue dress that would compliment the stunning diamond.
