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.

Kate Middleton is taking her trademark flowing tresses to the next level with her latest accessory: the headband. The Duchess of Cambridge has recently been ditching her stylish hats and fascinators in favour of headbands that come with a hefty price tag. Over the weeken, the 36-year-old mother of three was spotted for the first time in 2019 attending church alongside her husband, Prince William.

The Duchess has worn multiple headbands by Taylor, including the label’s Halo Band headband at Christmas which retails for $1,089.61 CAD.

It’s been quite the year for the Royal Family , with not one but two weddings, a new baby and another on the way in the new year. The Queen proved she was as style savvy as the younger royals with a surprise appearance at the Richard Quinn catwalk show, joining US Vogue editor Anna Wintour in the front row during London Fashion Week . The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge welcomed a third addition to their family with the birth of Prince Louis in April. While glimpses of Louis have been rare, his older siblings George and Charlotte have stolen the show on more than one occasion. The young royals are practically pros at page boy and bridesmaid duties. After announcing their engagement in November 2017, Prince Harry and former actress Meghan Markle tied the knot at St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle on May 19, in a ceremony that was watched by an estimated 1.9 billion people around the world. It was a star-studded affair and Meghan wowed in her wedding dress by Clare Waight Keller and an evening gown by Stella McCartney. The pair have thrown themselves into their royal duties and charmed everyone they met during their royal tour of Australia, Fiji, Tonga and New Zealand in October. The trip got off to an exciting start as the couple announced they’re expecting their first child next spring. Princess Eugenie also married her long-term boyfriend Jack Brooksbank at the same venue as her cousin Harry on October 12, and her proud mother Sarah, Duchess of York made her return to the fold. Kate came back from maternity leave in October and looks more confident in her role than ever. As well as joining forces with William at several engagements, she’s proven that the Kate effect is still in force with her fashion choices. The Prince of Wales celebrated his 70th birthday in November and there were plenty of family and public occasions to mark his milestone. And then of course, the Queen was joined by the rest of the royals to celebrate Christmas at Sandringham .
