It seems like Kate Middleton, 35, isn’t as frugal as we once thought! While we have praised Kate for being the Royal Recycler for years, it’s estimated that her wardrobe from 2017 so far, already costs a whopping $70K and it just started.

Thanks to What Would Kate Do?, a blog dedicated to all things related to the Duchess of Cambridge, we have an exact breakdown of Kate’s gorgeous outfits from January – March 2017. If this is the rate Kate’s moving, then she is definitely going to surpass last year’s grand total of a reported $214,788.19 spent on clothing, according to DailyMail. Ok, so let’s break down all of Kate’s fabulous looks.
