Princess Beatrice has a wardrobe brimming with gorgeous designer labels from Erdem to Roksanda and Prada. But occasionally, the daughter of Prince Andrew wears ensembles that are a little more affordable and that makes us (and our bank accounts) very happy indeed. Back in the summer of 2017, Princess Eugenie's sister headed out to the V&A summer party and stole the show in a Self Portrait number which immediately turned heads due to its semi-sheer lace panels that had a navy blue overlay and a body skimming cut. The royal teamed the £350 dress with a pair of leg-lengthening velvet heels and a contrasting metallic clutch.It later went down in the sale to £175 but sadly is no longer available. However, we have the best news. As part of their new collection, Topshop has a dress that is a dead ringer of B's dress. Priced at £75, it has the same sheer panels and is made in a regal navy blue. Result!

Princess Beatrice wore this £350 Self Portrait dress in 2017

Self Portrait is a brand loved by the Royal family - particularly the Duchess of Sussex. In April, Prince Harry's wife Meghan attended the Invictus Games Reception in London with then fiancé Prince Harry.

The former Suits star often wears neutral colours, so it was a huge shock to see her wearing a green floral midi dress by the brand, with a chic black blazer over the top. Priced at £300 and made with cold shoulder lace trimmed sleeves, the fancy number was made in a light crepe material and had a retro, zany print over the top. 

The Duchess of Cambridge is too, a follower of the brand and in 2016 Kate was the belle of the ball at the premiere of A Street Cat Named Bob in London.

Her snow-white, neutral number had a lace overlay, a sleek flowing skirt and cost £320 from SP. It was a hugely popular design at the time, selling out instantly.
