Kate stopped royal aides sharing fashion details over cost concerns: ‘Doesn’t look good’


Kate, the Princess of Wales has been known for her glamorous style choices during her years as a member of the Royal Family.

“[or], you know, an overseas visit.”

Discussing the decision, Mr Palmer said: “I think the cost-of-living crisis may well be part of that as well.

“It’s not a good look, is it, to turn up to a food bank in a £3,000 coat.”

He added: “But again, there’s always that difficult balance because people expect Princesses to look like a Princess.

“To look glamorous and to look something different from the people you see in the high street.”

He continued: “You know, as ever, with her, I think she’ll mix and match.

“On some occasions, she’ll wear a £35-pound dress and then occasions where she’ll wear a £3,000 dress.”

Ms Forsyth pointed out that when [Kate] wears a £35 dress, it does seem to “fly off the shelves”, asking whether Kate actually “likes the dress, or do you think she’s trying to be more relatable”?

Mr Palmer replied: “I think she does, yes.

“Then, it’s about being authentic I suppose”

He said: “I think she gets very frustrated.

“There have been other times when she’s made a landmark speech and you know, all people were asking about was oh she’s changed her hairstyle.”

In early December, Kate and Prince William are set to make their first overseas trip since the death of Queen Elizabeth II, and since becoming Prince and Princess of Wales, with a visit to the US for the Earthshot Prize Innovation Summit.
