Duchess Kate Middleton has reportedly already spent $70,000 on clothes this year

By Emily Drooby, Buzz60

Kate Middleton is known for her fabulous outfits — but looking that polished apparently comes with a price (and it’s a steep one).

According to a popular blog, “What Would Kate Do,” it’s estimated that Kate has already spent 57,000 pounds — or $70,000 on clothing this year. That’s only from January to March. It’s estimated that she spent over $200,000 on clothes last year, so this year’s total so far is considered pretty high. Some of the steeper price tags from last year include $10,000 for an Alexander McQueen gown and $6,000 for a Jenny Packham dress.

Look back on Kate’s 2016 style:
