The frock sold out online as soon as Kate was spotted in it and then promptly sold out in black when she wore in it that colour too. 

Although the dress was restocked, it has since sold out again (you can, however, buy it in blue) there's no need to fret as we may have some good news for you.

The brand's red skater dress, which features a similar scoop neckline and the same full-skirted feel, is retailing for just £69, in contrast to the mainline frock which sat at the £990 price tag.

"We're so thrilled, she looks so elegant. This dress is designed to be both classic yet modern, perfect for the Duchess."

While the fabric is of course not going to be of as high quality as the original, the piece certainly has a similar feel to the Duchess' – and will make for an excellent day-to-night investment piece.
