No idea where to put this, mods: feel free to move!

The total amount spent by the royal ladies on clothes in 2017

In total, the royal women spent a whopping 916,127.12 € in 2017 altogether. (more actually as some outfits were not identifiable, so total cost isn't really there)

https://static1.squarespace.com/static/580cf7ce6b8f5b3576a3da9f/t/5a4af93a24a694278e1f7a37/1514863100016/Screen+Shot+2018-01-01+at+10.14.49+PM.png?format=1000w

The order for prices spent (from highest to lowest) are as follows:

1. Queen Rania of Jordan

2. Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge

3. Crown Princess Mary of Denmark

4. Princess Charlene of Monaco

5. Sophie, Countess of Wessex

Her husband isn't even first in line to the throne, she's spent fewer than a third of the year doing engagements, and she's spending more on fashion than European Queens. As a British taxpayer I'm fuming.

Has anyone been on the IG site katiemiddletonrp? It is devoted to side-by-side comparisons of KM and Diana fashion pics. I was going to post the link but the account suddenly went on private. If it ever becomes a public account again, well, some of you may have a stronger stomach than I. lol  On the johanroyalty site there are a few pics of QE II/Diana/KM copycat pics. Eye opening. I don't know how to post links sorry but if someone else can, please do. I didn't know Diana copied the queen... :cookie:

The real "Kate Effect" in action today:

Kate's scarf was originally £79.
It was reduced to £63 in the sale.
Kate fans identified her scarf today/ the exact model.
After the scarf was identified, Beulah immediately increased the price to £95 and it went from old, sale stock to 'pre-order'.

People on Twitter aren't happy about this at all.

Duchess déjà vu! Kate dons a custom Catherine Walker houndstooth coat that looks VERY similar to one Diana wore at Sandringham - hours after she wore the princess' earrings to dinner

    Duchess of Cambridge, 36, stepped out in a houndstooth coat in Stockholm
    The garment was custom-made by Catherine Walker, a favourite of the royal
    The bold red and white look is strikingly like one worn by Princess Diana in 1990
    Diana wore a Moschino jacket to Princess Eugenie's Christening at Sandringham

She could have worn black at the BAFTA and fit in with the dress code, but pleaded royal protocol; now she's breaking protocol by wearing black and that is supposed to be okay. Hypocrite; if she had worn black at BAFTA she would have ended up making a huge gesture, but she shirked that chance. Talk about credibility shot to pieces.

I think Kate's floral wardrobe comes from:

1. An attempt to look delicate and feminine
2. She isn't getting a good budget and so she's stuck with tacky floral dresses with those loud floral patterns

^^  @KF  -  great remark  -  council cath attempting to look "delicate and feminine"  -  I was drinking coffee and nearly choked on it  lol  Trying to visualise council cath ever being "delicate and feminine" but my brain just can´t process that.  She is very masculine looking with hard, cold features  -  unfortunately for her, irrrespective of cost, she will never, ever look the least bit soft and feminine.  Always a major fail when she tries, and especially those dire, dreadful frocks made out of curtain fabric from the Days of Yore are alll a major fail  -  whoever tells her that she looks wonderful in them must lie beautifully to her face and should be sacked.  She is unfortuantely one of those women who just can´t do the delicate, frilly bit, it does not suit her one bit.  I don´t suit frills and fancies, they just don´t suit me, wish they did, I therefore keep away from them, and I do not have the fashion knowledge and experience that many people around council cath can give her, I would instinctively know someone was lying to me if they said I looked good in a frilly dress, because I know I don´t.  She is nearly middle aged, for goodness she should know what suits and doesn´t suit by now.  She never seems to look comfortable in those frocks that were curtains once upon a time.  If this is all quinn can manage to try and make her look like a soft, gentle person then it is a major fail on her part, she needs to get her thinking cap on again, if she has one, but by the look of those frocks she lost that cap.

As it's revealed Princess Charlotte's sell-out dress was made by an old school friend of Kate's, meet the other fashionistas getting a sales boost every time the royal wears their designs

    Princess Charlotte's £45 frock was made by Kate's school friend Alice Avenel
    The Duchess of Cambridge has other friends whose designs she showcases
    In return for fashion advice Kate wears their pieces and they instantly sell out

None of these people are her friends though or in K's "inner circle". She may use or wear their stuff, but that's it. She notoriously has no friends and drove away any female breathing in the same air as Will.

Just wanted to say that I was disappointed in the color of Kate's outfit at Harry's wedding today.  I understand that she might not fit into a lot of her clothes right now, but the color of her outfit looked off white which is not appropriate for some else's wedding.

^ Yeah I thought the same.. the colour was too "bridey".... She doesn't have the excuse of not having much that fits, she has all the money, resources and a shopping addiction.
She looked great though, even though she committed quite a faux pas. Would love to see what Kate wears tonight...

Don't upstage the bride! The recycling trick thrifty Kate uses to avoid stealing the limelight at weddings - and how she used it on Meghan's big day

    Kate recycled a McQueen coat she's worn three times for Harry's wedding
    Duchess often wears an old outfit to weddings so as not to steal attention
    She re-wore old Day Birger et Mikkelsen coat for Zara and Mike's wedding
    Recycled £36 Topshop dress William van Cutsem wedding to Rosie Ruck Keene

Katiekins seems to have a knack for wearing white-ish outfits to other people's weddings, incl Zara's and Camz's daughter's Laura Lopes's.

It’s to steal the limelight from the bride.

I’m so frugal and all that crap when we all know she’d beg for a new outfit paid for by PC.


On a related topic, Liz Hurley did the same to the groom’s bridge and was in the papers for the next few days. (She wore a front slit dress with identically matching knickers). She claimed she never looked at hers before going out.  :laugh:

She was immediately dropped from the friendship of the groom.

Pathetic really. Trying to deflect attention from the bride. But  :Carole: is cunning that way.

No that's not the picture HRHOlya.

I didn't even know that one. It was when she was with Hugh Grant and it was a friend of his, I think, and she hadn't on a matching dress and knickers.

Then she claimed she didn't know the dress was like that!  :laugh: she must think we're all stupid. Or as we say in Scotland, you've got sawdust for brains.

I'll try and find it.

^^ Bridesmaid dress is different and doesn't go with the rules of appropriate wedding gear as guest, because the bridesmaid dress is chosen by the bride. At K's wedding Pippa wore an emerald green dress in the evening, that was her personal choice, the bridesmaid dress was K's choice.

That might have been the picture actually. I couldn't find anything else, so it may well have been that one.

^ That's ok :thankyou: Do you by any chance know whose wedding it was? Though it was clearly ages ago.. She's not that much better even now :spy:

^^ Who knows, Kate has so many samey things, it would be actually modus operandi for her :sigh:

It was a society wedding and the groom was a friend of Liz Hurley. But after she showed up and "stole the bride's day," so to speak, she became persona non grata.

I don't know why Darius Guppy came to mind, but I think the groom might have been involved in some 'shady' stuff. (Not illegal though). But since it's so long ago, I'm not positive if I'm mixing up grooms from different weddings.

But it was all in the tabloids, so will do a search.

Just did a search so I'm modifying my post MODs before I'm timed out. Thanks.

No, you were right all along. It was that photo. At the time, I thought she was desperate for publicity and I still do.

Did Kate actually wear a NEW outfit to the royal wedding? Eagle-eyed fan claims the duchess DIDN'T recycle her Alexander McQueen coat - and it's all down to a subtle difference in the sleeves

    Duchess of Cambridge wore an Alexander McQueen coat to the royal wedding
    It was believed to be the same one she had worn on three previous occasions
    But one eagle-eyed royal fan claims it is actually an almost identical lookalike
    Wedding coat had buttons on the sleeves while the one worn previously did not

Did she have it altered? But then that's too little, doesn't make sense. Also doesn't make sense to have a 2nd coat made near identical to the 1st. And why didn't she choose another colour? She can't possibly delude herself into thinking "oh I have sth new!" when sth near same is already in her wardrobe?? I mean we all know she buys samey stuff, but this is now beyond ridiculous and quite unreasonable.

But also better than the fugly prints she is so fond of.

I am always so floored at how she can possibly be considered even remotely frugal. FFS nearly the EXACT same dress in an ever-so-slightly yellower shade. At a wedding.

Kate is probably the least frugal and most non-sensical person in that bloody family.

Post by: HRHOlya on June 05, 2018, 11:04:37 pm
^ She actually is indeed the least frugal. No one works less than her and no one spends as much money on her wardrobe as her (ok maybe Camz).
The "frugal" shtick was I think KP spin to make her look attractive to the public (always those "the Cambs are normal & like us!" bs articles) and by now I think it's the press being snarky. I think every time they write they're "like us" or "normal" or "frugal" or any other way virtuous, the press is dripping with sarcasm.

Kate playing normal is joke like the fake job Will had created for him where he did not have to keep a regular schedule. And Kate has to "be with the children" and can't work even for a few hours a week and she has nannies for the children.

Honestly, the thing that came out of this for me was JUST HOW MANY CLOTHES SHE HAS. Mostly stuff she has only worn once. If she doesn't borrow as the RF claimed, where are they all stored??? Who needs all this stuff, especially someone who barely does any work?

Post by: HRHOlya on June 10, 2018, 02:16:04 pm
^ When did they claim she borrows?
Storage isn't too much of an issue imo as the have huge Anmer & the biggest bit of KP (1A), plus other "apartments" of KP as "offices" and I could imagine that they store stuff there as well. The Winds's archives might take care of some of the stuff as well, like they do for Liz, she must have the greatest bulk of clothes and I think very few things were ever disposed of.
In any case, Anmer & KP 1a should have more than enough space. When she runs out she could auction some things off. Diana had a much smaller apartment and found storage for her tonnes of stuff, I think auctioning some of it off was also due to storage problems and because she wanted to cull disliked pieces and things that maybe carried bad memories for her.

^ Some of my faves are included there as well, some things though aren't part of my fave list :tehe:

Why Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton can't wear wedges around The Queen

    As part of the Royal family, Meghan Markle's expected to follow strict guidelines
    They pertain to what she eats, how she behaves in public and what she can wear
    Some rules stem from proper etiquette while others are the Queen's preferences

Only linking this, because this is what protocol pretty much is -- etiquette + Liz's (monarch's) preferences:

    Royal Look for Less is a Toronto-based company specialising in royal replicas
    It sells copycats of Meghan and Kate's most iconic looks from as little as £40
    Some of the convincing copycats include Alexander McQueen and Prada frocks

Post by: windsor2 on September 22, 2018, 04:58:20 am
The truth, there's no Waity effect in fashion.

Kate's fashion CURSE: Her magic touch sends her favourite brands' sales soaring, but as Orla Kiely, LK Bennett, and Alice Temperley found out, having a piece in the Duchess's wardrobe can be a jinx
For any fashion designer, having a member of the royal family wear your clothes is the ultimate endorsement, guaranteed — one might think — to send sales soaring.
But when that royal is the Duchess of Cambridge, it seems, her sartorial support can be counterproductive.
Over the years, several of Kate's favourite designers — high-end and High Street — have reported financial difficulties, crippling losses and, in some cases, been forced to shut up shop completely.
The latest casualty is Orla Kiely, the Irish fashion retailer which this week collapsed and closed all its stores after a slump in profits.
And rather than being coincidental, fashion experts say there may be a link between Kate's backing of a fashion designer — and financial woes further down the line.
For although clothes fly off the shelves at first — the so-called Kate Effect has boosted the UK economy by £152m a year — this requires a huge increase in production.
As a result, many retailers take out loans, rack up debts they can't pay and end up on the brink of bankruptcy.
What's more, customers acquired this way tend to buy one-off items rather than become loyal shoppers — and then move on when Kate debuts a new look. As one designer endorsed by the Duchess put it, it's like being hit by a 'tsunami of global interest'.
So who's fallen victim to the Curse of Kate?
L.K.BENNETT: SALES SLUMP 
A royal wardrobe essential, High Street label L.K.Bennett has become something of a trademark for the Duchess — particularly its nude Sledge platform courts (£195), which Kate rarely leaves the Palace without. She owns six other styles from its footwear range, most of them in patent nude, as well as an array of similarly hued handbags, such as the Nina clutch, which she carried to an event at the National Portrait Gallery in 2016.
FINANCIAL LOSSES: Earlier this year L.K.Bennett reported losses of £5.9 million in 2016/2017, compared with a £100,000 profit in the previous 12 months. Total sales also fell by 1.8 per cent to £77.4 million. The company blamed the figures on 'exceptional costs' of £28.7 million, spent on corporate restructuring.
OTHER WOES: Last month the company was hit by an IT glitch, forcing it to cease all online trading for three days. Unhappy customers were stopped from buying anything new from the website, and there was a delay in dispatching existing orders.
WHAT THEY SAID: 'Clearly, the results for this period were unsatisfactory and we have taken decisive action to improve performance.'
HOBBS: FINANCIAL WARNING 
Sloaney staple Hobbs — founded in 1981 by London couple Yoram and Marilyn Anselm — is one of Kate's High Street favourites. She wore the brand long before she entered The Firm.
FINANCIAL LOSSES: In 2015, Hobbs racked up pre-tax losses of £15.6 million, after a management shake-up left it with hefty legal fees. The previous year, it was forced to ditch its sister brand, NW3, after a £1.9 million loss.
Even though gross profits jumped 8.7 per cent in 2017, earlier this year, it was named one of the UK's loss-making retailers, with financial analytics firm Company Watch placing it in its 'warning area'.
OTHER WOES: In 2017, Hobbs was put up for sale by private equity firm 3i, which bought the business for £111 million in 2004. Its new owner, the South Africa-based Foschini Group, which owns Whistles and Phase Eight, thought the £80 million asking price too high, and secured it for an undisclosed sum.
WHAT THEY SAID: 'Our sales are up, gross profit is up, our margin rates are steady and we now have a very strong platform to grow.'
ORLA KIELY: COLLAPSED OVERNIGHT 
Kate has been wearing the Irish designer, known as 'The Queen of Prints', since 2011, when she was crafting her early royal looks.
FINANCIAL LOSSES: The brand went bust overnight this week, closing all five of its shops, ceasing online trading and going into voluntary liquidation. Liquidators blamed the collapse on 'challenges' in recent years. Profits fell from £109,000 to £74,000 last year, according to Companies House records, although turnover grew from £7.2 million to £8.3 million.
OTHER WOES: Staff were reportedly escorted out of the building in tears, with one source saying they were told they wouldn't be paid for three weeks' work. It was also said that Kiely and her husband paid themselves £400,000 as the fashion empire was on the brink of collapse.
WHAT THEY SAID: 'We apologise for any inconvenience caused . . . Thank you for embracing our brand and designs throughout the years and for your ongoing support.'
ISSA: DESIGNER QUIT BRAND
When a youthful Kate Middleton appeared on TV with her new fiancé Prince William on 16 November 2010, wearing this blue wrap dress by sleek womenswear brand Issa, it should have been the best day of founder Daniella Helayel's life.
FINANCIAL LOSSES: Issa ceased operating in December 2015, with final company accounts showing annual losses of more than £4.3 million.
OTHER WOES: In 2017, the department store House of Fraser bought what remained of the brand, taking it on as one of its in-house womenswear labels. Yet 12 months later House of Fraser, too, is in dire straits. Having announced 6,000 job losses and the closure of 31 stores, it's been bought by Sports Direct tycoon Mike Ashley.
WHAT SHE SAID: 'I had a great business, which I'd built up on my own over a decade. To watch it evaporate was heartbreaking.
ALICE TEMPERLEY: £9 MILLION LOSSES
The bohemian British brand is a favourite of Kate's — for everything from casual days out (the embroidered blouse she sported on her 2011 Canadian tour) to formal occasions (the green lace gown she wore to a London gala in March 2017).
In a 2013 interview, Alice, who said she received no prior warning when Kate was about to step out in one of her creations, described The Duchess as 'the perfect modern-day woman'.  :laugh: modern women usually work, unlike Waity.
With Carole and Pippa both also Temperley fans — not to mention a host of celebrity devotees including Beyoncé, Emma Watson and Heidi Klum — it seemed its future was secure. But beneath the surface cracks were beginning to form.
FINANCIAL LOSSES: In 2016, reports showed losses of more than £9 million over five years. In both 2011 and 2012, Temperley Holdings lost more than £1 million, followed by pre-tax losses of over £5.8 million in 2013.
In 2014, the company posted losses of £2.8 million, with auditors warning of 'material uncertainty' over the brand's future.
Well-connected Alice secured a £1.8 million bail-out from 20 wealthy friends to stop the business going under. And in January it was reported that things may be turning round with growth almost doubled to 9 per cent.
OTHER WOES: Alice's business troubles coincided with the breakdown of her marriage to German financier Lars von Bennigsen, whom she married in 2002. The pair, who have an eight-year-old son, Fox, separated in 2011.
She put Cricket Court, her beloved listed Somerset mansion and the venue of her extravagant summer parties, on the market in 2016, slashing the price by £250,000 to £2 million after it failed to sell.
WHAT THEY SAID: 'Temperley London's business continues to develop strongly on the back of a newly focused strategy.'

I think Kate is more of a jinx; McQueen isn't what it used to be anymore, it's been changed into a generic ladies wear brand that errs on the side of being boring as all get out. The whole point of McQueen is that not just ANYONE could wear his designs and pull it off and the stuff they have on sale is plain crap. Kate's fashion is generic and in general, Kate strikes me as a major jinx to everyone around her. No one ever comes out of being around her unscathed.

What utter bs, if that number were even a bit true, then the losses wouldn't be so great. And she's singlehandedly keep the fashion industry afloat. The lies are amazing.

Kate's hat at Harry's wedding is the same one that she wore to Zara's wedding; I also realize it might have been a rented piece. I think Charles has cut her clothing budget by a large chunk since after all, she doesn't work and has done nothing but cause trouble since teh moment William slipped that ring on her finger.

I think I recall reading somewhere, and on here, that she goes to that outlet in Gloucestershire, or somewhere, and gets the left overs from the previous season. So when people go on to their website, if indeed they do, probably another untruth, and it says the frock/coat whatever is sold out, the reason is because it was last season and she got her on  the bargain basement rack, and then she and her team of three tarts would mess it around and make it fit, which was very obvious just by looking at her clothes.  There is no "council cath effect", who would want to wear her clothes, very plain and boring.

The Queen was fooled by Kate and Will she thought they would be full time royals but first Will wanted to play copter pilot (co-pilot) and Kate wanted the third child. I hope Charles does cut her budget.

Kate seems to be trying to have a Queen Victoria "mumsy" look especially with the flowers in her hair. Something an elderly woman might like.

She's trying to be as WASPy as she possibly can and is determined to fit in with the rest of the tackily dressed members of the aristocracy and gentry. It is clear that she is not going to dress as someone in her position should (with a little more sophistication and elegance) and I don't think William likes it at all.

As for Charles and HM footing the dress bills for Kate, I wager they bitterly regret spending even one pound note. I also do not think her wedding dress was something to brag about and I do think her dress was part of some bargain and was designed with that in mind. I do think she got the label on that dress plus excellent tailoring, but not as much thought was put into the design and I don't think she got any input from the palace. It was all budget and really it set the precedent.

I think how Diana was treated created very unrealistic expectations; Diana was treated as well as she was initially because she was marrying WAY before her peer group, she was a virgin, she was also from a prominent family with a mixture of royal blood (however illegitimate, royal blood counts for something), and her aristocratic connections were all over the French aristocracy and she was the equivalent of American royalty as well. She came with money of her own and an established work ethic. Combined with her heavy schedule of duties and appearances, plus putting up with Charles, she made a huge amount of sacrifices that few do.

Kate went in being expected to be treated equally as well, despite the fact that:

She did not come from a prominent family
She did not come with an established work ethic and connections
She has no distinguished lineage (something that counts for EVERYTHING in her culture)
She did not marry as a teenager (no matter how much she might have wanted to)
She has not certainly been 'untouched' during all those dating years
She has not brought money of her own to the marriage
She did not marry at an age that would be unusual for her peer group

Kate never made any real sacrifices and no one made her give up her free time to be at William's beck and call.

This difference was never pointed out and I do think a lot of up and coming potential consorts thought that it would mean that if they landed that ring, they would land the couture, but many have learned that it doesn't quite work out like that, that way. A lot of royal women get designer gear, but the era of that level of wretched excess is something that is part of a bygone era. No way are too many royal men (or their governments) going to shell out for a closet of haute couture.

Isn't every article on the DM click bait? We know by now that after every event that Kate or Meg goes to that a DM article about their behavior, clothing, make-up is coming next.

I really liked that Catherine Walker coat. But that bespoke Alexander McQueen looked ridiculous because why is she wearing a military-styled coat and she was never in the military, what is she, soldier Barbie?  :laugh:

The Queen and Camilla are wearing basic coats, and not coats that mimic military uniforms  :sly:

Duchess Kate repeated a blue Eponine London dress, showed off her highlights

Quote
I forgot that this was happening! I swear, I do try to keep up with all of the upcoming royal functions, I just forget sometimes. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are spending the day in South Yorkshire (Rotherham) for a series of events, like opening up McLaren Automotive’s new Composites Technology Centre and making a visit to a local Centrepoint hostel (William has long been a Centrepoint patron). They’re due back in London this evening for the big blowout party for Prince Charles’ 70th birthday.

For today’s events, Kate repeated an Eponine London dress in her favorite shade of blue. She wore this for the first time in January 2017, when she made a trip to the Anna Freud Centre in London. I still like this (£1,650) dress – I love the tailoring around the waist, the length is good, and I don’t even mind the reverse pleats or the buttons!

Duchess Kate repeats a teal Emilia Wickstead for a ‘surprise’ visit to the BBC
Quote
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were out and about again today, which means that they scheduled several events for two days in a row. Yesterday, they were in South Yorkshire for most of the day, doing a series of mental health and business-related events. Today, they made a trip to the BBC in London to “mark Anti-Bullying Week by working to combat cyber-bullying,” according to WENN. This was a “surprise visit,” according to the Daily Mail. It’s true – this event was not announced in advance. William and Kate have been doing that with more frequency the past few years, they’ll do a “surprise” visit somewhere, and surprise, all of the royal photographers are there.

^^I'm not so sure about that.  It feels more like an adjustment to the outcry over Sparkles' spending on those not the greatest looks.  Everything is political in this family so it could also be "see how sensible Kate is compared to reckless Markle?"  

I get it that they all spend more than should be allowed but MM has carried it, with Harry's help, to an ugly extreme.  Kate's just probably doing what she's told and this is a good, conservative image to sell.

In their minds.  Allow that caveat.  We all know better but they think in an alternate universe.

I think deep down there isn't any love lost between Charles and Kate; Kate was never the DIL he wanted and I am certain that despite her conservative image and recent good PR, he LOATHES her for what she did in 2012 (usurped HM's Diamond Jubilee boat display with her nasty family and the topless nude scandal) and would gladly see the back of her. A huge show of royal favor is how well the women are dressed and Kate hasn't had couture or high end designer custom made stuff for years.

A huge problem with Kate's misses is that she really does not make much of an effort; her skirt in Bhutan was more like a beach sarong than a skirt in a country/culture where female modesty is at a premium and she really didn't choose a skirt with substantial material and a long length. I do not believe she understands that pulling the sexy look does not make her daring, it makes her cheap and not someone to be respected. Same with that McQueen dress she wore in Malaysia. She can't seem to settle down on finding the right style that works for her and sticking with it.

I still think Charles yanked the credit card access; when she had access during the first two years, she was buying all the designer gear she could and wearing it to the worst possible places. With that card she was buying up a storm (shopping spree when she was supposed to editing at the Huffington Post) and she was buying all sorts of jewelry. Now the dolt is reusing and I can only believe that Charles has yanked her living budget and I am certain she is more than unhappy about it. I do not view her as so worried about PR that she would dress down for any kind of event and hide her best possessions. Ever since she married William she has been determined to make sure that the entire planet knows she's made it and she even has "Duchess of Cambridge" put on those sports jackets that she wears to sporting events. Second, there was that time when Kate was mentioning "I want more money" at that church ceremony (William and Charles gave her death stares) and I believe Charles cut the budget straight after her second 'pregnancy' was through. It wasn't until after the children were 'born' that she started getting downgrades.

I wonder if she is partially rewearing that suit is to show how skinny she still is, that she can still fit into stuff like that after all the kids. I think it's inappropriate anyway - too short, and the bow in her hair looks so juvenile.

Catwalk to KATEwalk! How the duchess gets top designers to tweak her outfits just for her - helping her avoid being too risqué
* Fan's claim, Kate Middleton's dresses are adapted from the catwalk to make them suitable for a future queen
* Edgy clothes that catch the eye on the catwalk rarely meet the exacting standards of the royal dress code
* Adapting dresses is something the Duchess of Cambridge has done since soon after her marriage to Prince William in 2011
The British Royal Family is said to abide by a very specific style guide which rules out inappropriately short skirts, day dresses that are too long, anything too flashy or flamboyant, slits that gape if you bend or sit down, and fabrics that crease.
As catwalk shows work almost a year ahead of production, Natasha will look through the season ahead, choosing styles/prints/patterns that are suitable, then discuss with Kate before designers are contacted.
Small changes, such as sewing up a plunging neckline like the adjustment to Kate’s Jenny Packham, are likely to be made by Natasha.
More fundamental changes to a design happen at the design house that made the piece.
It’s a collaborative effort, to ensure the design is preserved but royal modesty met and will cost more than buying ready-to-wear off-the-peg outfits.

Kate was the most inappropriate Royal dresser ever.  There are still pics everywhere of her crotch and butt flashing.  They will probably all reappear if she ever makes Queen Consort.  Ma Midd used to love dressing her in those very short  dresses too.  It took many many years to change her rather tarty image although she still loves a split to the thigh evening dress.  As mentioned above ma is alleged to pay a small fortune to astroturphers to flood the DM comments sections with their one liners of ‘classy’, ‘beautiful’ etc etc.  It’s all rather too transparent though.

You know, to be honest, Kate is having a spate of good press now, but in time it'll default to the negative coverage that her crassness deserves. I am dead sure that she has no chance at revirginizing herself if she doesn't work at all. Clearly Charles isn't buying this attempt to virginize herself and isn't splashing out the big bucks to pay for a couture wardrobe and it is clear that Kate's good press will not last if she does not work. Her Achilles Heel is her unwillingness to work and that lack of interest in working will always be her main flaw. I am dead sure that she is still determinedly unaware of this and I am sure she is in fact unwilling to face the fact that her past will never be forgotten and no one will allow her to forget all the low things she's done throughout her life.

You would think that if she was going to be so pointless, she would have the decency to at least TRY to dress interesting. As a royal duchess she could have been more experimental and more ornamental. Dressing like a business executive does not mean that she is a business professional and it does not mean she will be taken seriously. If I were a royal duchess, I would be wearing frilly things and lots of rhinestones and lots of feathers. Her position is strictly ornamental and she should be having more fun with it. Those severe lines and boring designs are just that, boring.

Kate wears McQueen but it's all so boring and sanitised. Their stuff has been so drab since Sarah Burton took over. It's gone from dresses like this https://vg-images.condecdn.net/image/GOxbPXvkLwN/crop/405/portrait/f/00040big.jpg to dresses like this http://www.10magazine.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/10/Alexander-McQueen-6-666x999.jpg

Sarah Burton has ZERO spark and she has ZERO acceptance of what made the brand so amazing. Kate is so bland and I suspect she's pressured Burton to make the McQueen brand more generic to suit her campaign to revirginize herself all over again. McQueen's designs were full of life and singular uniqueness, not for the average buyer.

She does need to change the hair do or give it a trim. She has not really experimented with a new look and maintains almost the same look she had as a University student (though she looked healthier when she was not so thin back at University)

Frankly, ever since Kate started McQueen and L.K. Bennett, both brands have gone downhill and become generic trash.

Of course it wasn't "cheap." But it still is ill fitting on her since she's gotten too thin.

The photo of her from 2007 in the DM today to me showed her looking healthier. She has IMO gotten way too thin,

She is at least mainly wearing longer clothes and not the crotch and butt flashing outfits of
yesteryear.  Maybe more the influence of the older woman brought in to advise her and not ma midd and her low class man snaring influences.  No one will forget her prancing around the catwalk (when at St Andrews) in her black underwear to ensnare Willy boy - and he fell for it hook line and sinker!
