It's great when royals like Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle step out in high street fashion brands that normals like us can afford, but sometimes royals have to dress the part in fancy designer gowns that those of us without royal bankrolls can't hope to own.

One such look was the the stunning (and instantly-iconic) pink and purple Gucci gown that Kate Middleton, who is a patron of 100 Women in Finance's Philanthropic Initiatives, wore to a Gala Dinner in aid of Mentally Healthy Schools at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London in February.

A reminder, in case the Disney princess-esque dress isn't just burned permanently in your brain:

Earlier this month, the must-follow royal fashion Instagram account, @Regal_Replikate, shared an amazing find: An affordable replica of the Gucci gown.

"@chichiclothing have a great #replikate for the Gucci dress worn by the #duchessofcambridge to the 100 Women in Finance gala last February. This dress has a similar silhouette and colour scheme, and swapping the pink ribbon for a burgundy one would make it look even closer to the original. Called “Chi Chi London Steffny Colour Block Dress, Mink”, available at @johnlewisandpartners and @nextofficial for £80," @Regal_Replikate wrote.
