As a princess, Kate Middleton basically has access to the most stunning and expensive clothing out there. And rightly so, because the duchess constantly meets with some of the most important people in the world, and regularly attends events that the public can only dream of. But just like every other woman, sometimes Kate doesn't want to be dressed to the nines and stand in heels all day, and dons a laid-back and casual look. And we love her for that.

And so does everyone else, because once Kate is caught wearing something actually affordable to the average person, it sells out in the blink of an eye.

We totally get why though. Her style is as effortless as her hair! Whether she's running errands or chasing after her little ones, Kate's style is elegant, preppy, and downright chic. We'd even argue that it's timeless, since she avoids fast fashion trends or flashy, over-the-top pieces of clothing and instead chooses classic colors and cuts.

While we love seeing Kate all decked out and glammed up as the duchess that she is, there's just something about having the future Queen wearing something relatable. Sometimes she even outfit repeats! She's just like us! Just kidding, sort of.

We gathered 50 of Kate's best casual looks for anyone, even non-royals, to copy.
