How Much Kate Middleton’s India Wardrobe Cost

There’s no denying Kate Middleton has been looking exquisite whilst on her overseas trip to India. But have you ever stopped to wonder how much all of those glorious outfits costed her/

Well, thanks to E News!, now we know. Because they’ve worked out that for her seven day tour of India and Bhutan – which featured 18 outfit changes – the Duchess of Cambridge racked up quite the wardrobe bill….


Yep, in total, the royals spent over £35,000 on Kate’s outfits, which is really quite unbelievable. Saying that, she did mix up older pieces with new ones, so it could have been ALOT worse.

Most expensive was that stunning royal blue embellished Jenny Packham dress, and coming in at the cheapest was the short red paisley Tospshop dress.


The mum-of-two was totally nailing her overseas dressing whilst on her tour of India with husband Prince William, so we’d say it was money well spent. Particularly for her recent visit to the Taj Mahal…

Kate opted to pay homage to India on April 15th, choosing a gorgeous blue and white embroided-style dress by US-American designer Naeem Khan, pairing it with L.K. Bennet pumps and simple blue earrings.

And in a touching tribute to Wiliam’s late mother, Princess Diana, Kate posed next to her husband, in the very same spot Diana was snapped in, 24 years ago.

When she touched down in near-by Bhutan with Will later that day, the Duchess of Cambridge was also seen in a short, A-line, white frock, by one of her favourite British designers – Alexander McQueen.

This is deffs one holiday wardrobe that we’d kill to get our hands on…

And prior to that on April 15th, Kate and Will attended a reception celebrating UK and Bhutanese friendship in the Taj Hotel, in Bhutan, with Kate making a statement in a long, poppy-patterned silk maxi by Beulah London (the poppy is the Bhutanese national flower, FYI).

Of course, she paired this with black sandals and gold dangle-drop earrings and totally nailed her look, there too.Kate Middleton poppy dress

How does she just keep on getting it SO right?!

When she first arrived to India earlier this month Kate was caught a little short in the Indian winds…

The 34-year-old arrived in New Delhi on April 11th (with William) looking chic and striking in a white Emilia Wickstead dress that boasted front pockets and a Peter Pan collar.

The Duchess of Cambridge accessorised with pale pointed courts and wore her hair down in her signature bouncy waves. LOVE.

But as her and William went to lay a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier to honour those who had died in India’s wars at its national memorial, her dress chose the the totally wrong moment to start playing up in the wind.


Thanks to a big gust of wind, Kate ended up fighting with her billowing skirt to stop it blowing up into her face, leaving many to start comparing her situation to that famous Marilyn Monroe moment.

Ever the graceful pro, however, Ms Middleton styled it out, and her modesty remained protected. Phew.
