This fall, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle (opens in new tab) (and their little bundle of joy, Archie Harrison) will embark on their official royal tour of South Africa and the world will be watching.

A royal tour means a ton of back-to-back royal engagements and a full wardrobe of new royal looks to enjoy from Meghan. If Meghan's tour of Australia and New Zealand (opens in new tab) is any indication, she's going to be wearing an amazing series designer dresses (probably with a ton of navy blue).

Those designer looks, amazing as they are, are not in the price range of normal humans. As an example, let's look to the two-toned blue Roksanda Athena (opens in new tab), pleated crepe midi dress that Meghan wore to visit the Macarthur Girls High School in Sydney last October. That gown retails for $1,295 (opens in new tab) (but, thanks to the steep price tag, it's still available (opens in new tab), if you have an extra thousand+ dollars to splash out for it).

A reminder of the look, in case you need it:

The always-amazing royal fashion 'gram Regal Replikate (opens in new tab) has found an actually-affordable replica of the dress though.

The replica is a Hobbs London dress (opens in new tab) known as the Helenora. It retails for $125 (opens in new tab) (but sometimes runs on sale for much less, according to Regal Replikate's original post on the dress).

The Hobbs London look has short sleeves, whereas Meghan's Roksanda dress was sleeveless, and the lighter blue is a little more vibrant, but the overall impression of the dress is definitely similar to Meghan's look.
