Duchess Kate has been showing off her trendy fashion sense on the royal tour. And now we’ve found a nearly identical alternative to her classy flat shoes.

  • Duchess Kate is currently away on the royal tour in Pakistan with husband Prince William.
  • And royal fans have been enjoying seeing her gorgeous fashion pieces, including her classy flat shoes, which we’ve found a cheaper alternative to.
  • In other royal news, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were forced to cancel a royal engagement after a scary flight.

Duchess Kate is currently away in Pakistan with husband Prince William while the pair carry out engagements for their royal tour.

And as usual the always-elegant duchess has been making good decisions in the wardrobe department, this time opting for simple and modern takes on traditional Pakistani dress.

And while fans have been loving her outfits, it’s the Duchess’s shoes that have been the talk of the town.

From muted nude heels to trendy slouched boots and of course her signature white trainer pumps, the royal’s shoe game has been on point during the trip.

And one footwear choice that particularly caught our eye was the pair of shoes that Duchess Kate stepped out in earlier today.

The Duchess was most recently seen wearing a classy monochrome outfit of a white top and pair of trousers covered with a longline black blazer coat.

And of course she paired the look with gorgeous footwear.

She finished off the sleek outfit with a pair of flat black pumps – and we absolutely fell for them.

The Russell & Bromley flats have a delicately pointed front and come with stylish criss cross straps to dress them up.

So imagine our heartbreak when we discovered that they will set us back a cool £195.

But fear not – because we’ve found a just as stylish and much cheaper alternative. You’re welcome.

Online retailer ASOS are selling a nearly identical pair of stylish flats – and they even come in different designs.

SHOP NOW: DESIGN Loyal ballet flats, £18, ASOS

While the ASOS design comes with a slighter flatter heel and less of a point at the front, it also comes in at £177 cheaper than the Russell & Bromley at only £18, so we might just be able to deal with the little tweaks.

Plus if you want something a bit brighter, the retailer also sells them in a striking red colour, or for animal print lovers there’s a monochrome zebra design or a fashion-forward snake design.

And the animal print ones are an even bigger bargain as they’re currently both on sale for £7 for the zebra print and £8 for the snake print.

We might get one of each…

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...).
