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?

^ 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

A shame indeed, laughable how she's called "thrifty", I mean yeah sure she's the biggest spendthrift. I think Murky will be a great competition in the spendthrift stakes.

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

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5910783/Why-Meghan-Markle-Kate-Middleton-wear-wedges-Queen.html

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

Steal Kate AND Meghan's style on a shoestring! Online store flogs replica royal outfits from just £40 – including a VERY convincing take on the Duchess of Sussex’s £445 Self Portrait dress

    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
    While an almost identical replica of Meghan's Chloé bag costs just £45

The coat Kate can’t stop wearing three years (and a third pregnancy) later: Duchess’ favourite Alexander McQueen ensemble is so flattering she owns it in THREE shades

    The Duchess of Cambridge wore a pale blue McQueen coat on Tuesday 
    She has been seen in the same style no less than four times previously
    As well as blue she also owns the coat in cream and a primrose yellow

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.'

The Kate Eeffect was a media myth imo, that these designers fell for.

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.

Besides, the "Kate-Effect" brings in millions, but here are all the companies actually dying/ dead: ...
The irony!!! And proves that her "effect" is made up bs.

That same sentiment about Kate"s Effect is similarly being said about the Murky ‘effect’.

I just noticed something:

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.

The DM tends to do this for click bait. The casualty of all this is the overpraise of Kate with sugars really believing she's "thrifty" and "classy". Of course Kate has an expensive lifestyle.

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
