The Duchess of Sussex's striped sundress is so much like Primark's latest number

Royal style on the high street…

Laura Sutcliffe

If there's one thing we love it's a trip down memory lane, and since the hot weather is here we've been getting summer dress inspiration from our favourite royals.

The Duchess of Sussex always rocks a fabulous dress or two when it's warm (she is used to all that sunshine - hailing from LA after all!) and one of our favourite numbers she wore was in 2018, on the royal tour of Australia.

During that time, all eyes were on Meghan after she stepped out in a striped sundress at Bondi Beach with her husband Prince Harry.

Meghan nailed the beach babe look, whilst also giving us some serious holiday wardrobe inspo. She wore an olive and brown, striped maxi dress by local designer Martin Grant. The casual number featured a pleated skirt and retailed for £1,080 online, but has since sold out.

If you love the royal's striking dress, you don't need to worry, because high street favourite Primark has a dead ringer of a frock that really does look just like Meghan's designer number.

£15, Primark

Although made in white and pink as opposed to the darker tones of the original design, we think you'll agree, the shape is super similar. It has the same drop waist detail, vertical statement stripes and spaghetti straps. And for just £15, you can't go wrong, can you? Primark doesn't have an online site but remember to check out the dress section next time you are in store.

We've also found another similar number you can order online from Yumi at John Lewis...

It has a flattering striped pattern and features a peasant-style drop hem skirt and thick straps. We think the white is super summery, too.

Or how about this gorgeous striped maxi from Missoni? The crochet-knit dress is available in forest green or lilac, plus it's in the sale right now.

The Sussexes carried out a whopping 76 engagements over their 16-day tour and Meghan showcased her chic style to perfection the whole time. After Australia, the couple travelled to New Zealand followed by Fiji and Tonga. Meghan was around four months pregnant with son Archie, but still looked as stunning as ever, even sporting high heel wedges. Impressive!
