The Duchess of Cambridge has made her first appearance at Wimbledon this year. 

The 39-year-old royal, known for her love of tennis, wore a chic blue and white outfit on the fifth day of the tennis tournament. 

She wore a navy tailored blazer over a crisp white top, and a navy and white polka-dot pleated midi skirt, by Alessandra Rich, a spin on the very similar dress by the designer which she was been spotted wearing on several occasions.

Kate completed the look with a pair of white heels, and a matching handbag, and accessorised with a gold necklace, and gold and pearl hoop earrings.

The Navy polka-dot pleated silk midi skirt is made from navy and white silk, and flattering to all silhouettes, thanks to the high waist detail, and the flowing pleats. 

Luckily, for those who have fallen for the look, it's currently on sale. The skirt usually retails for £795, but has been reduced to £556.50 at Net-A-Porter.

Sizes are selling out fast but if you simply can't part with over £500 (and we don't blame you), you can recreate the duchess' look on a more affordable budget. 

Here's our stylish selection of alternatives that won't break the bank.
