With the likes of Jenny Packham, Alexander McQueen and Erdem on speed dial, the Duchess of Cambridge has curated a seriously impressive Kensington Palace wardrobe over the years. In her pre-Duchess days, the 37-year-old was often photographed in high street labels but after wedding Prince William in an Alexander McQueen dress (rumoured to have cost £250,000) back in 2011, the fashion industry’s ears soon pricked up. Dubbed ‘The Kate Effect’, the mother-of-three’s royal closet reportedly contributes a cool £1 billion to the economy with a large number of her ensembles garnering sell-out status within a mere matter of hours. But with the need to dress diplomatically on trips abroad (who can forget the £12,000 outfit she donned in Paris last year?) and a seriously coverable maternity wardrobe behind her, it’s hardly surprising. From that time she wore head-to-toe Gucci in London to her unofficial position as a Jenny Packham ambassador, these are the Duchess of Cambridge’s most memorable high-fashion moments of all time.
