Kate Middleton is asked what her favourite item of clothing is


Kate Middleton's designer wardrobe is one we would do bad things to get a peek of, so we were more than excited to discover that she'd been discussing her most-treasured fashion finds.

12-year-old school girl Molly Parmeter wrote to the Duchess of Cambridge asking her to describe her favourite item of clothing for a book she writing, entitled 'Molly's Style Icons'. Too cute.

So imagine her delight when the 31-year-old royal style icon wrote back with her answer. After receiving a thick embossed letter from St James's Palace which landed on her doormat, Molly revealed: 'It was a beautiful envelope from Buckingham Palace.'

So what was the stylish Princess's answer to the question on everyone's lips? Well, ever the diplomat Kate replied saying it was impossible to choose one item over another.

Alexander McQueen, Roland Mouret, Jenny Packham... yep. We can see why.
