Lorraine Kelly wowed fans this week with a gorgeous look that replicates one of Duchess Meghan’s best.

The ITV daytime show host took to her Instagram page earlier this week to share a snap of her chic and relaxed outfit.

And it looked just like one of Duchess Meghan’s iconic looks.

Echoing the Duchess’s stream of relaxed shirt dresses she wore while on royal tour in South Africa back in September, Lorraine replicated the casual chic look with her own button-up frock.

And it comes in at a fraction of the royal’s price.

The Duchess’s floor-grazing khaki shirt dress she wore during a mosque visit was from LA-based brand Staud and will set back customers £290 from luxury retailer Net-A-Porter.

But Lorraine’s humble version was from everyone’s high-street favourite Marks & Spencer – and it’ll set customers back less than £30.

The Pocket Utility Shirt Midi Dress comes in at only £29.50 and is a midi length for a more casual look than the Duchess’s.

With a relaxed collar and tie waist, the shirt dress will give you a laid-back look for a lovely day out.

Great work dress,’ wrote one customer. ‘Bought this today for work in black. Lovely fit. I am a size 14 and the fit is perfect.

I love the length too and the waist is in exactly the right position. I haven’t washed it yet, so I can’t comment on that. Looking forward to wearing it on Monday to work!’.

And fans loved the dress on TV presenter Lorraine, as one wrote, ‘Love this on you. It looks so comfortable and light. 💜’.

Aleesha has worked for woman&home since 2019, when she joined the team as their digital news writer. A year on the news team gained her quick and reactive writing skills and a love for breaking stories, invaluable insight into where to get the best lifestyle releases first, an AOP awards nomination and the nickname ‘crazy watch lady’ after she became so obsessed with the royals that she followed breaking news alerts on her Apple Watch.


Before joining the woman&home team, Aleesha wrote for their sister site GoodtoKnow, where she covered celebrity news, health advice and where to snap up the cheapest lifestyle buys. With a background in beauty, Aleesha has also written for Stylist and Women’s Health where she developed an understanding into what makes a stellar product and which brands are worth paying attention to. She never leaves the house without a slick of lip balm and a good slathering of SPF, cannot live without an eyelash curler by her side and is always on the hunt for new lipsticks to add to her ‘Lipstick of the Day’ Instagram story highlight (and color-coordinated collection).

But it’s not just beauty buys Aleesha can help you with. Social media savviness, strong PR relationships and a need to stay in the know mean she’s all about the latest fashions, clever gadgets and reliable lifestyle buys too. She loves indulging in an interior craze (with a bedroom drowned in prints, plants and pink), is a regular visitor to the Missoma and Edge of Ember 'New In' pages and can’t resist the allure of a kitchen gadget—just ask her three coffee machines.

When she’s not playing around with new products and testing anything she can get her hands on, Aleesha spends most of her time with her head in a current bestseller, catching up on the latest Netflix craze with her sister, trying out new recipes, drinking wine with her bestie and (in non-COVID times) has been known to be a bit of a jetsetter amongst her friendship group. Oh and she makes the most of her Disney+ subscription by watching the Marvel films on repeat (definitely not just for Chris Evans...).
