Princess Eugenie wears affordable Zara coat ideal for Spring

While the eyes of the world are trained on royal bride Meghan Markle, it's easy to let it slip from our minds that Princess Eugenie is also another member of the family preparing for her 2018 wedding.

But while she waits for her upcoming nuptials to fiance Jack Brooksbank in October, the Princess has been stepping out in some very fashionable looks.

Most recently, the Queen's granddaughter headed to the popular Bluebird Cafe in London's Chelsea, dressed in a stylish high-street coat.

The 28-year-old opted for a classic black, tartan-esque, check coat, from none other than retailer Zara. It seems the royals enjoy high-street shopping as much as the rest of us!

The coat is also a pretty affordable buy, selling at £79 from the high-street store. Sadly, the coat is currently sold-out, but there are plenty of other options available that look similar to the Princess' choice.

Princess Eugenie paired the coat with a simple but effortly stylish outfit. The royal chose a pair of casual black jeans for the meal out, with some simple, black boots. She also opted for a satin green shirt, paired with a black strap bag.

So where could you find a coat similar to Eugenie's on the high-street?

Mango are selling a similar black thigh-length coat, for £119.99. The style is perfect for Spring, when you often need to stay wrapped up warm. But the light-wear design also ensures you're prepared for any warmer weather too!

The check design is very similar to that of Princess Eugenie's, and the lighter, brighter colour would make for the perfect option for the warmer months.

Eugenie has previously spoken about her down-to-earth style with publication Harper's Bazaar. In the interview, she confessed her love for popular high-end store Zara, and reveals that she usually likes to dress casually - despite being seventh-in-line to the throne.

She admitted, "I wear a dress and boots to work. I've started wearing high heels, which is so grown-up. But they're painful by the end of the day. I look at people wearing heels in movies and I'm like, 'How do they do that?'

"For clothes, I love Sandro and Maje. Zara is great for work, and bits from Topshop. My favorite is my lace bomber jacket from Essentiel Antwerp. And I live in my Rag & Bone ankle boots."

Eugenie has also long favoured designer Erdem, with many speculating that she may opt for them for her wedding dress in October.
