She may have had two McQueen dresses in one day, but Kate Middleton’s keen to prove she’s still the peoples’ princess, stepping out in a £49.99 Zara dress the day after her marriage to Prince William.

Eschewing designer labels in favour of her high street favourites, the Duchess of Cambridge chose to celebrate her first day as a real royal in a cornflower blue pleated polyester dress from Zara and a pair of patent black wedges from L.K. Bennett which cost £129.99 – a friendly reminder that her feet are firmly on the ground, despite her elevated title, if ever there was one.

Whilst the outfit’s nothing exciting – it’s classic Kate – it is refreshing to see her steering towards more fashion forward retailers like Zara, as well as sticking by her tried and tested stores.

We’ve checked Zara and the dress has sold out in the UK, but it’s still available to buy in the US, so not only, we suspect, is it a recent purchase, US readers can still get your hands on it if you’re quick.

As for the shoes, we can’t find them anywhere on L.K. Bennett’s website, so we figure they’re probably past season (but hey, with a bit of luck, they’ll be reissued soon).

A girl after our own hearts?
