Not over Duchess Kate's Ascot dress? This £12 dupe will stop you in your tracks

Now this is what you call a royal lookalike…

We don't know about you, but the Duchess of Cambridge was a vision at Royal Ascot last week! The stunning royal wore a beautiful white dress that was emblazoned with polka dots and she added a glorious woven hat of the same monochrome hue. It gave her a real 'My Fair Lady' vibe and is one of her best looks to date.

It came as no surprise that Kate's dress was by one of her favourite designers, Alessandra Rich. The dress comes in at just under £2,000, and is sadly a past season buy. We love the fact it's a close-fitting style with long sleeves and it's the ideal dress to wear for a formal occasion.

Royal fans felt like Kate's ensemble was a huge nod to her late mother-in-law, Diana, Princess of Wales. Not only did her dress closely resemble the frock Diana wore to Royal Ascot back in June 1988, but the mother-of-three also sported a pair of diamond and gold earrings that once belonged to Diana, too!.

It's not the first time we have seen the duchess wear the glittering jewels, as she previously wore the earrings to the BAFTA Awards in 2019.

It appears that polka dots are very much on trend for the royal ladies at the moment.

Just like Kate's:

On Saturday, Princess Beatrice graced the racecourse wearing a monochrome polka dot midi dress by Saloni.

Kate's style:
