As a member of the royal family, Kate Middleton can't take fashion risks like Katy Perry and Rihanna, but that doesn't prevent her from making a huge style statement over and over again.

Although the Duchess isn't above shopping at affordable clothing stores like Zara and UK's Whistles, most of her picks tend to fall on the pricier side. Below, Us Weekly has found several affordable pieces that match up with the 30-year-old's wardrobe staples so closely, it's like having a royal flush in your closet!

PHOTOS: Kate Middleton's chicest outfits

Love Kate's lace overly Erdem dress she wore to a wreath-laying ceremony when she visited Canada with her husband Prince William June 30? While an Erdem design will run you over $1,000, this black and nude dress from Alexia Admor features the same 3/4-length sleeves and boatneck neckline. ($158, nordstrom.com)

She may not be rocking sky-high Christian Louboutin pumps a la Kim Kardashian, but Kate's simply chic nude, $325 L.K. Bennett pumps with a 1/2 platform have become just as iconic. Save a few hundred by opting for these Vince Camuto 3.5-inch heels. ($98, bloomingdales.com)
