They might be part of the royal family now, but Kate and Pippa Middleton both chose the high street for their first appearance after the royal wedding at the weekend.

As Kate emerged from Buckingham Palace with her new husband, ready to be whisked off by helicopter for a UK weekend mini-moon, she eschewed designer labels and chose instead to travel in a stylish ensemble from high street haven Zara.

The new Duchess of Cambridge looked pretty in a cornflower-blue belted dress costing £49.99, which she teamed with a simple black jacket, and £129.99 LK Bennett patent cork wedges.

Pippa, meanwhile, also appeared from the Goring Hotel, the morning after becoming an overnight sensation at the royal wedding, wearing an electric-blue £69.99 jacket, also from Zara.

She teamed her cute coat with white jeans and £120 Riva ballet pumps by Tory Burch.

The girls' relatively frugal post-wedding outfits were in sharp contrast to the £60,000 bill for the big day outfits ( a cool £40,000 for the bridal gown, and £20,000 for the bridesmaid), proving that, as long as you pick the right pieces, you can look fabulous in high street as well as big name designers.
