Kate Middleton often chooses high street bargains over designer items - and it's not just her clothes that she likes to save money on.
At the Queen's Diamond Jubilee thanksgiving service last Tuesday, the 30-year-old teamed her lace Alexander McQueen dress with a pair of £48 earrings.
Kate bought the dainty drop earrings from jewellery company Heavenly Necklaces, which describes its products as 'fabulous fakes'.

Royal fashion fans went crazy for the Duchess's low-price accessories and within 24 hours of her stepping out at St Paul's Cathedral with husband Prince William, 29, the earrings had sold out.
Heavenly Necklaces was later forced to put up a message on its website warning new customers that they're having trouble catering for the high demand.

'As a result they've suddenly proved rather popular and we've none left...'
