The Duchess of Cambridge never fails to impress with her sartorial choices, but sometimes they are slightly too expensive for us to replicate.

Cast your mind back to July, when the 38-year-old royal was promoting her latest venture, Tiny Happy People, which provides parents with free digital resources to help support them through pregnancy up until their child is five years old.

Images of the duchess wearing a black and white polka dot shirt dress from Emilia Wickstead were shared on the Kensington Royal Instagram account and she was flooded with praise.

One social media user commented: “Love this polka dot ensemble.”

A separate fan added: “Kate is literally perfection.”

The Anatola Pleated Polka-Dot Crepe Shirtdress features long sleeves, a neat collar and button front fastening, as well as a pleated skirt and belt detail around the waist.

The chic number originally retailed for £1,565, before it was reduced to £469. But it has now completely sold out.

However, we have found a very similar looking design, which is available and for a fraction of the price.

Marks and Spencer is selling a Polka Dot Belted Midaxi Shirt Dress, which boasts a smaller polka dot print to the designer version.

It also features a collar, long sleeves and button front detail, as well as a detachable belt around the waist.

The dress is available in a regular and long length, both of which are available to buy in dress sizes 6 to 24.

Did we mention it only costs £49.50?

Plus, we already know the duchess is a fan of M&S’s Midaxi (in-between a midi and maxi) dresses. She wore the Printed Yoke Midaxi Waisted Dress in a blue cabbage print from M&S when she lead a virtual assembly for kids through the online classroom Oak National Academy earlier this year.
