A style icon of royal proportions, The Duchess of Cambridge is always on perfectly polished form. See Kate's fashion hits so far and keep up to date with her diary with our gallery of Kate Middleton's Royal Engagements.
Since being crowned the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton has taken to her role as a royal with poise, elegance and a serious sense of style…
The fashion world knew it had a future fashion queen in its midst when Kate Middleton unveiled her engagement to Prince William, sporting Princess Diana's former sapphire engagement ring with a draped Issa dress to match. The Duchess of Cambridge has since become known for championing British fashion designers, from Alexander McQueen to Alice Temperley, as well as affordable high street favourites. Every new addition to her wardrobe is sure to be a sell-out, thanks to what's been named the 'Kate effect.'
Since she cemented her status as a fashion icon by donning a lace Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen dress on her wedding day, Ms Middleton's racked up plenty of best dressed accolades, always appropriately chic, whatever the occasion.
While she's proven herself an inimitable icon, it's clear Ms Middleton has a fail-safe fashion formula, rarely seen without her bouncy Chelsea blow-dry, a pair of patent courts and a tiny clutch.
Now pregnant, Kate has taken maternity fashion in her stride, mixing and matching pieces by Topshop with Mulberry and Emilia Wickstead. With her baby's due date fast approaching in July 2013, there's no doubt she'll nail new mum dressing just as easily.
