Princess Beatrice's trend-setting gown at Buckingham Place is totally affordable

By: Laura Sutcliffe

Princess Beatrice had a fashionable night out on Thursday (April 18). The royal, while attending the Commonwealth state dinner at Buckingham Palace, looked ethereal in an elaborately embroidered gown by luxury brand Needle & Thread. Ever the trend-setter, the 29-year-old nailed a few trends in one go – sheer bell sleeves, embroidered florals and a full-tiered skirt. And the best part about it? It's affordable!

The dress originally retailed at $760 but is currently in the mid-season sale for $380.60 and available online in almost all sizes. The figure-hugging design skimmed her trim frame and the defining ribbon waist detail showed off her slim torso. The princess wore her trademark red locks in a trendy half-up, half-down style and she made the most of her features with smoky eye makeup and a slick of nude lip-gloss.

Beatrice has a very close bond with her newly engaged younger sister, Princess Eugenie, who even gave a tribute to her sister on Instagram last month. The bride-to-be shared a black and white photo of the pair and captioned the shot "beautiful big sissy."

The pair are often seen out together and last month they were royal guests at Prince Christian of Hanover and Alessandra de Osma’s wedding in Peru, and twinned in floral frocks. Eugenie wore green and Beatrice opted for navy blue and both sisters teamed their dresses with strappy sandals and sunnies as they enjoyed the day.

Beatrice's younger sister Eugenie is to be married on Oct. 12 to her long term love Jack Brooksbank and is busy planning her nuptials which will take place at Windsor castle, in the very same chapel cousin Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will wed in on May 19. Last month, the 27-year-old shared a photo of her and her sister as bridesmaids when they were children and captioned the sweet snap: "90s throwback… wedding planning starts!!"
