First it was the BAFTAs, then it was a royal meet and greet at the Oxford House Nursing Home—it’s safe to say that although Kate Middleton is officially the Princess of Wales, she’s clearly moonlighting as the Queen of Fashion Versatility as she pivots from one royal occasion to the next. But whether she’s dressed to the nines in a reworked Alexander McQueen gown or pairing navy separates beneath a camel coat, the Princess of Wales still managed to surprise us with a range of affordable (read: attainable) mix of accessories.
Kate Middleton Wore Not One, But Two Affordable Accessories This Week—Here’s How to Get the Look

1. Her ‘Cascading Flower’ Zara Earrings
Yes, they retail for $28. Yes, they sold out in a hot second after Kate wore them out on Sunday night for the BAFTAs. But before you tearfully abandon your shopping cart, we’ve found a couple of delightfully similar back-up options that still manage to deliver on that Schiaparelli-inspired design.
This sparkly pair from Shashi is a near-replica of the original pair worn by Kate, although a hair less dangly, which might actually make them more wearable?
Another example: This pair from Kate Spade—called the ‘Floral Frenzy Ear Pin’—is bold and beautiful.
2. Her Numèro Sept Mini Handbag from Polène
This is the third time Kate has chosen to proudly carry her Polène bag in a beautiful (and now sold-out) blue hue. This time, she brought it to the Oxford House Nursing Home for Pancake Day—a big deal ahead of Lent in the U.K. Of course, you can score the OG bag in a different color (phew) but we also dug up a royal alternative.
Like we said, Kate’s Polène style is still in stock and even though the blue is no longer available, you’ve got 16 additional colors to choose from—you kind of can’t go wrong.
Another brand beloved by the royals, Cuyana offers a stunning alternative—in blue—to Polène.
