On Thursday, the Prince and Princess of Wales headed to a foodbank in Windsor.

Braving the cold weather, Kate, 41, rocked a fabulous raspberry colourway, choosing a cashmere polo-neck jumper in crimson, which she teamed with a matching coat from high street favourite Hobbs. Together with trousers from Jigsaw and heels, the mother-of-three brightened up the cold January morning, that's for sure!

The royal wore her famous mane loose and expertly blowdried, and as she turned her head and smiled for the cameras, we caught a glimpse of her gold earrings, which looked like a pricey buy. But no, they were actually £18, from Orelia.

Back in November, Kate visited Scarborough, wearing a sumptuous beige overcoat by Max&Co layered over a turtleneck beige knitted dress featuring long sleeves, a figure-skimming fit and finished with a tan Boden belt. She added Accessorize's 'Twisted Circle Drop Earrings' which at the time of purchase cost just £5.

We bet you can't imagine the brunette royal wearing earrings even cheaper than £5 can you? Well, in 2019, Kate paid a visit to the RHS Garden Wisley, wearing a striking Emilia Wickstead floral dress, and a pair of earrings known as the  'Filigree', which came from Accessorize once again and cost just £1.50 in the sale.
