Even though we're all buzzing about her baby-boy blue Jenny Packham dress, nothing will compare to Kate Middleton's engagement frock. So it's a good job Issa London is launching a version of the pretty number with high street store Banana Republic. Royal wardrobe on a budget, here we come.

Issa London is reissuing a version of Kate Middleton's royal blue engagement dress as part of their forthcoming collaboration with Banana Republic.

The British brand has created a daytime alternative to the iconic satin-finish frock after the sell-out success of the original wrap round style, which flew off the hangers almost immediately after Kate's engagement to Prince William.

The new version comes in both blue and plum (ever so regal) and features the original K-Middy wrap waist and ruching.

And it'll cost just £65 for you to dress up like a Duchess.

Ever since Kate hit the screens for the engagement announcement back in 2010, royal replicas have been ruling the high street - but this is by far the best Kate-copy.

We predict this daytime dress will be one of those blink and it's gone fashion buys, so you better act quick when it hits the high street on 8th August.
