While we loved the bespoke Alexander McQueen look Catherine wore to her sister Pippa’s wedding, but we couldn’t help but feel a little wistful at the sheer impossibility of ever being able to recreate her look on a high street budget.
However, some eagle-eyed fashion bloggers have come to our rescue, by identifying the outfit Catherine wore on her way to the wedding… and it’s from the high street!
Yes, whilst the Duchess of Cambridge was careful not to be pictured in her “unofficial” look on the day, she was spotted travelling to the venue wearing a floral shirt dress suspiciously similar to this £39.99 dress from Zara.
Did she want to save creasing her official outfit? We don’t know, but we do know that we love it so much, we almost wish she hadn’t changed on arriving at the church!
Sadly, the dress is now sold out (due to the infamous ‘Kate-effect!’) However, you can still snap up this updated floral and striped version for the same price.
Long Striped and Floral Print Dress, £39.99, Zara
This is so much more than simply the perfect all-in-one travel outfit. It takes all the hassle out of trying the daunting print clash trend, making it perfect for any upcoming summer weddings of your own – it would be a waste to leave it in the car!

It’s the perfect solution to summer office outfit dilemmas, too, and it will work with flat sandals for more causal summer soirees and city breaks. You could even wear it over your bikini on the beach! With the Duchess’ seal of approval to boot, you can’t go wrong.
