The public eyes are always on Duchesses and the clothes they wear on official events. Both of them usually end up in the media for what they wear. We can read in media about their outfits, are they repeated clothes for royal arrangements, is Queen Mother upset or happy with their fashion choices. The clothes of Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle is always a hot topic in the press.
Both Duchesses have impeccable taste in fashion and know how to look beyond beautiful on the royal events. We can ask a question, who spend more money on clothes, Kate or Meghan? What do you think? If you want to find out, continue reading this article.
How much does Kate Middleton spend on clothes?
According to some of the reports in 2018, Kate Middleton wore new clothes worth $85,097. It is much less than in 2017 when she spent $130,000 in total. This sum of money is definitely more than an ordinary woman in 21 century can afford to spend on clothes in years, but we are talking about the royal family. The reason for a great difference in years is that Kate Middleton was on maternity leave in 2018, and she did not attend royal events.
How much does Meghan Markle spend on clothes?
If you thought that Duchess of Cambridge is spending a huge amount of money on new clothes, you are wrong. Duchess of Sussex spent five times more than the amount of Kate Middleton in 2018, she spends around $509,278. We can say that Meghan Markle has the most expensive closet in the world among the royal families. Only Crown Princess Mary of Denmark spend a lot of money on clothes, around $144,349.
In the calculation of the Meghan Markle`s closet went a set of Cartier Reflection Wedding Bracelet and Earrings with the price tag of $233,000. If we exclude this jewelry as a gift from Prince Charles, we will get less money on clothes.
We must write in the defense of Meghan Markle that she is the newest member in the royal family and she must change and adapt the whole wardrobe to royal rules. The Kate Middleton has the clothes that can be reused and Meghan Markle does not have, and Meghan Markle also had to clothes for pregnant ladies because a couple of months after the wedding she was pregnant. We can say she was forced to spend that amount of money.
Royal family members are known for being modest
It is very contradicting to say that the royal family is modest and we know the amount of money hanging in their wardrobes, but we also know that Duchesses are trying to cut some of the costs like they do their own makeup for official events, and they choose themselves clothes, they do not hire a stylist for that.
We know for sure that Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton are fans of Zara and H&M, and they do not wear designer clothes all day long. Many times paparazzi caught Kate Middleton in stores where commoners go, where she buys affordable clothes.
It is a big scandal in media when a member of the royal family show up in the same outfit twice on some official event but both duchesses does that. They love to reuse their designer pieces. For the almost ten years how much is in the royal family Kate Middleton has been reusing a lot of the clothes from her wardrobe. She is the modest Duchess and the public love her for that. Meghan Markle is going the same path, she is the new member but she already has picked up some good habits from her sister-in-law. She also re-wearing her designer clothes on royal arrangements. Meghan Markle does not hire a stylist for her public appearances, and she always does makeup by herself.
