Good luck telling these two Kates apart. Kate Middleton may have a royal allowance and team of stylists, but Kate Urbanksa uses just eBay and a tailor to emulate the Duchess's signature style. With over 4,000 followers on Instagram, the "GreatRepliKate" shares her secrets for stealing the royal's look, from her gold earrings down to the nude pumps. The British beautician often scours resale sites while waiting for the bus, scoring designer looks from Alexander McQueen and other high street favorites for a fraction of the cost. What she can't find, she'll hire a tailor to recreate. "I love Kate Middleton and her style – her look is modest, timeless and so different compared to other celebrities nowadays," the 29-year-old told the Daily Mail. She started collecting the outfits the day aft
Getting to see Kate’s dress last night in a little more definition was quite a treat, but it might have been William’s attire that requires just a bit more scrutiny

Queen Elizabeth
The Queen hosted the Diplomatic Reception at Buckingham Palace. This is an annual event that is usually kept quite private. The date is not released to the public with much advance notice at all and the royals don't release photos from the very formal evening at which the ladies always wear tiaras. We usually get arrival photos taken as the cars arrive at Buckingham Palace. This year for the first time since I began paying attention to the Diplomatic Reception, and possibly for the first time ever, the Palace released a photo of the royals from inside the exclusive event. As I think most remember, there was exclusive video of the 2015 Diplomatic Reception in the documentary Our Queen at 90, which was the way we got a full-length peek of Kate's absolutely stunning evening gown f...

Fashion and Style: Catherine Duchess of Cambridge Teaches You How to Dress for the Occasion

Duchess Catherine
A classic beauty — with a twist! Duchess Kate loves to dress for the occasion, from St. Patrick's Day parades (her arsenal of emerald coats!) to Canadian tours (maple leaves on maple leaves). And yet, while the royal mom, 34, is always up for the theme, she also consistently surprises Us. Which is why we're breaking down her signature style, so you too can be the ultimate in putting a fresh twist on tried-and-true pieces. Watch the Anatomy of a Style lesson in the video! Observe: When the Duchess of Cambridge visited Canada in September with her husband, Prince William, and their two children, Prince George, 3, and Princess Charlotte, 18 months, she stunned in a number of scarlet styles — a nod to her host country's flag — including this red-and-white Alexander McQueen beauty. Proving he

Fit for a prince: The designer behind Rachel Riley’s childrenswear WHEN Prince George was snapped wearing her classic styles, sales of Rachel Riley’s childrenswear soared. Camilla Tominey meets the designer. It would be easy to dismiss Rachel Riley’s clothes as something only royalty can carry off. The childrenswear designer – not to be confused with the Countdown host of the same name – has provided the outfits for all the key moments in Prince George’s young life, from his first royal engagement to his debut appearance on a set of postage stamps. Sailboat smocked dungarees that cost £75 aren’t what you would typically dress your toddler in for a playdate, but the third in line to the throne is no ordinary three year old and these are not your run-of-the-mill children’s clothes.

Duchess Catherine
It appears the Duchess of Cambridge, née Kate Middleton, has more in common with Prince Harry's girlfriend Meghan Markle than first thought. The pair, who share a number of striking similarities, have the same taste in fashion too, having both stepped out in the same Diane von Furstenberg 'Zarita' dress for separate red carpet appearances. Kate wore this Diane von Furstenberg dress to the Royal Variety Performance in 2014 Meghan, 35, wore a short navy version of the dress to a 2012 USA Network event in Hollywood, while Kate opted for a full-length black gown version for the 2014 Royal Variety Performance in London. The fashionable duo both styled the dress differently too; Meghan paired hers with nude court shoes, a charm bracelet and her hair worn down in loose curls. Meanwhile Kate

GIRL ABOUT TOWN: Is this the dress of the year? Duchess of Cambridge, Paris Hilton and Tamara Ecclestone are all spotted wearing £320 white gown by a little-known designer At a London film premiere on Thursday evening, the Duchess of Cambridge – whose Kensington Palace home is next door to Tamara Eccelstone’s 57-room mansion – inadvertently copied the heiress by wearing a £320 white gown made by emerging designer Self Portrait. Tamara wore the same dress for an Evening Standard photoshoot in June, as my picture shows, while American socialite Paris Hilton has also sported the gown. Paris, 35, first wore the £320 pleated crochet floral maxi dress - which features a prominent slit in its long flowing pleated skirt - to the amfAR Inspiration Gala in Los Angeles. Other features of the dr

SNEAK PEEK: DUCHESS KATE'S NIGHT AT THE MOVIES FOR ACTION ON ADDICTION Checking in here to bring you your little "Sneak Peek" before the full post on tonight's events. As announced a little earlier today, Kate is at (what was) an embargoed event. Once she arrived, it was revealed to be a meeting with recovered addicts who have gotten involved in film. The princess is wearing a cream/white gown by Self Portrait--what I like to label a "Designer Debut." My initial reaction is delight. I think it looks lovely on her. I am so happy she went long! The films provide real hope that people can, and do recover from addiction. Watch 'Hope' yourself here🎬 : https://t.co/rleiRNDZ3E — Kensington Palace (@KensingtonRoyal) November 3, 2016 The Fug Girls have pointed out that Paris Hilton recen

The Queen Elizabeth Once Again Proves She’s as Chic as Ever — Even at 90!

Her Majesty The Queen
Sure, Princess Kate‘s style receives the bulk of the royal fashion focus, but during the past 24 hours, 90-year-old Queen Elizabeth proved why she’s the original well-dressed royal. Last night, the Queen stepped out in a turquoise and blue dress by one of her personal assistants and senior dresser, Angela Kelly. You’ve seen the Queen sport her looks often — like in the royal enclosure at Royal Ascot. She wore last night’s look to welcome Team Great Britain’s 2016 Olympic and Paralympic teams for a reception at Buckingham Palace. She paired the metallic print dress with a few go-to accessories, including a double strand of pearls, black gloves and her ubiquitous handbag. The Queen followed up last night’s look with another winning ensemble on Tuesday. This time, she met with Brigadier J
