The Duchess loves a high street bargain...
We love seeing the Duchess of Cambridge’s outfits, just as much as we love shopping a high street bargain. But seeing Kate Middleton wearing a high street bargain herself takes our happiness to a whole new level.
That’s right, the royal stepped out for her first public engagement of the year on Wednesday, for a visit to the Foundling Museum in London. Kate looked as stylish as ever in her chic workwear attire, wearing a simple black roll neck jumper paired with a teal blue coat and navy wide-leg trousers from Jigsaw.
For accessories? None other then a £2.10 pair of earrings from Accessorize. The ‘Mini Hammered Doorknocker Hoop Earrings’ have been reduced from £7, and that’s what we call a royal bargain. It seems that the Duchess is a big fan of high-street jewellery, remember Kate Middleton’s hoop earrings from ASOS that she wore last year?
For hair, the royal rocked her signature loose waves alongside a statement makeup look. Her sharp black eyeliner, rosy blush and pretty pink lip are all something we can get on board with. If you want to try the look out for yourselves, be sure to check out our guide to Kate Middleton’s favourite beauty products.
Kate was joined by her husband, Prince William, during the important visit. The Foundling Museum tells the story of Foundling Hospital, the UK’s first home for children whose mothers were unable to care for them. Kate became a patron of the museum back in 2019.
Sadly, her exact earrings are no longer available to shop (that’s ‘the Kate effect’ for you), but not to fear, as we have recreated her whole outfit below.

Get The Look: Kate Middleton’s outfit
Get the royal look with this teal coat from Monsoon. It features a structured silhouette with a high neck and slightly-squared shoulders.
As proven by Kate Middleton, you can never have too many roll neck jumpers. They are such a staple, and this black number can be paired with lots of looks.
These wide leg trousers are the perfect mix between looking smart and feeling comfortable. They have concealed pockets at the side and a crisp crease down the front.
They may not be Kate Middleton's high street bargain, but we think these earrings come pretty close. They feature an 18k gold plated clean metal circle interlocked with an intricate bamboo textured hoop.
