With the Duchess of Cambridge currently lying low after giving birth to her third baby, it's the perfect time to reflect on some of her best outfits of the past.
And one such moment was on a 2017 visit to the V&A museum, just down the road from her home in Kensington, London.
During the engagement, Catherine stunned fans when she wore a gorgeous black and white tweed Gucci dress, complete with red lining around the hem, sleeves and pockets.
The Duchess paired her kitsch dress with some simple black heels and a red clutch - and it was without doubt one of the most stylish moments of her royal career so far.
So it'll be music to your ears to hear that one of our favourite brands, Boden, have released a dress that looks strikingly similar to Catherine's V&A outfit.
Hello! magazine noticed that the brand have revealed an 'Adelaide Tweed dress' on their website, which has a very similar checked pattern and red stripe detail to the Duchess' Gucci number.
Coming up just above the knee, it's also a similar length to Catherine's dress. Even the mid-length sleeves bear a striking resemblance to the sleeves of the royal's dress.
Handily, the Boden piece also has pockets too, in the front, just like the Duchess of Cambridge's does.
But happily, the similarities stop there - with the dresses worlds away in price. While Catherine's dress is estimated to have cost around £2000, Boden's alternative is on sale for just £150 - a fraction of the cost.
The dress is still available in all sizes - but given it's likeness to the Duchess' Gucci number, we predict it won't be around for long.
In fact, the Duchess of Cambridge is a big fan of Boden herself. Most recently, she wore their orange £200 Lena coat to a London engagement, just weeks before giving birth to Prince Louis.
It's also thought that she has a few of their pieces in her private wardrobe too, which she wears when at home with her husband and three children.
So we're sure that the Duchess will love this brilliant dupe of her Gucci look!
