The Duchess of Cambridge and her husband Prince William began their official tour of Ireland this week.
- The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge headed out in Dublin last night for a glamorous evening engagement.
- Duchess Catherine stunned in a bold green dress, inspired by her royal relative Princess Beatrice.
- This royal news comes after Primark launched a replica of one of the Duchess’ most iconic dresses.
On Tuesday night, the pair stepped out for their first evening engagement in the city of Dublin and of course Duchess Catherine kept on theme with her outfit.
The iconic couple spent the night at the Guinness Storehouse’s Gravity Bar, where the future Queen consort treated herself to a pint of the famous Irish tipple.
Looking as elegant as ever, Catherine sported a shimmering emerald gown, costing £1,595 from The Vampire’s Wife.
Kate teamed the ruffled, metallic piece, named the Falconetti, with a pair of glamorous drop earrings, a sparkling gold clutch bag and a pair of classic velvet green heels.
While at a glance the royal mother-of-three’s look may seem gorgeously unique, it’s actually rather similar to one worn by her cousin-in-law, Princess Beatrice last year.
In August 2019, the Princess of York stepped out for the wedding of singer Ellie Goulding and art dealer Caspar Jopling, wearing Catherine’s The Vampire’s Wife dress.
While the Duchess wore the Falconetti, Princess Beatrice wore the Veneration version, which features a tiered hem and more ruffles.
Although purchasing the royal ladies’ frock may be a little too much of an expense, stealing Duchess Catherine’s style in the footwear department is easier and more affordable.
Duchess Kate wore the super chic BB Velvet Pumps by Manolo Blahnik costing £525 last night, but trusty high street favourite Marks and Spencer have a very similar offering in stock.
The retail giant’s dark green Pointed Toe Court Shoes feature an elegant silhouette complete with a delicate cut out inner sides and cost just £25.
Who said replicating royal fashion had to be pricey?
