The Duchess of Cambridge is used to wearing royal heirlooms and sparkling diamonds studded in her ears, so royal fans were extra surprised when they noticed she was wearing a bargain pair of Accessorize earrings when she visited her RHS Back to Nature garden back in May. Unsurprisingly, the pretty £8 earrings sold out sharpish - but lucky for us all, they're back in stock online! The pink gem drop numbers have a gold finish and gave an extra feminine touch to the two midi dresses Kate teamed them with.

Kate first wore the high-street accessories to visit her garden privately with husband Prince William and children Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, matching them with her gorgeous & Other Stories floral dress. She later wore them again to the Hampton Court Flower Festival, with a beautiful teal Sandro frock.
This isn't the first time the royal has surprised us with inexpensive jewels. Back in 2013, Kate wowed crowds at the Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom screening, wearing a cream floor-length Roland Mouret designer gown which she teamed with a £20 statement necklace from Zara.
Fans loved the pretty earrings and they quickly sold out
The Duchess has also shopped at Accessorize for her jewellery before - in 2016, during her royal visit to India, she chose a pair of the brand's beaded filagree earrings for an engagement in Mumbai - before wearing them a number of other times during the tour.
We'd love to see Kate wearing more high-street jewellery, wouldn't you? Also a fan of affordable pieces is the Duchess of Sussex, who loves cult brands Missoma and Catbird - her go-to Catbird 'threadbare' rings are just £37, and she's been loyally wearing them for many years.
Duchess Meghan is also a fan of affordable jewellery
Meanwhile, Meghan's Missoma collection includes her £85 heart-embossed signet ring, a £45 'Interstellar' ring and £59 'Double Arrow' ring. She has been sporting pieces from the blogger-favourite jewellery brand since her Suits days!
