Kate Middleton has a way of turning even the most controversial trends into an elegant style moment. In March, the Princess of Wales wore a pair of high-waisted cargo pants while touring a Mayan monument in Belize. The exact G-Star skinny cargo pants she wore are available on the brand's website, but we found five alternatives on Amazon, starting at $24.

Over the past few seasons, tons of celebrities have been spotted wearing versions of the cargo pants trend. Kourtney Kardashian wore baggy camo ones while out in Los Angeles, and Kim Kardashian wore silver cargo pants for a night out in New York City. Gigi Hadid is also a fan of the trend, and Rihanna rocked a pair back in January.

Unlike these stars, Middleton went for a tighter-fitting version of the cargo pants trend, instantly refining the look in a way only a princess can. And, of course, she finished off the outfit with her go-to white Superga sneakers, which she's been wearing on repeat for years.

Below, we rounded up five pairs of slim-fit cargo pants you can shop on Amazon to channel your inner princess:

If you're not ready for full-on cargo pants with pockets on the legs, go for the Daily Ritual Utility Pants, which achieve the same look with less bulk. They have two oversized side pockets, two back pockets, and zippers on the ankles for an extra style element. Plus, they're made from a stretchy and comfortable blend of cotton and lyocell. In addition to the classic green option, you can choose from six colors and patterns and sizes 0 through 16.

To essentially achieve Middleton's exact look, check out the G-Star Raw Blossite G-Shape Army High Skinny Pants. They're a slightly different model than the ones she wore, but they're from the same brand. The cotton and elastane pants have a high waistband, two cargo pockets with snap closures, two slit pockets on the back, and exposed seams throughout the legs. Pair these with a white tee and comfortable sneakers, and you've achieved the princess look.

And for a more comfortable option, the Libin Cargo Joggers combine the look of cargo pants with the ease of sweatpants. They have an elastic waistband with an adjustable drawstring and five functional pockets, including two zippered side pockets, two cargo pockets with hook-and-loop closures, and one zippered back pocket. According to one shopper, the "super flattering and lightweight pants are perfect for anything casual."
