When the eyes of the world are on you, it's natural to want to look your best - but that's left the Duchess of Cambridge with a rather hefty shopping bill at the end of 2017.
This year, Kate has increasingly turned her back on high street staples in favour of designer labels such as D&G and Preen.
Totting up all the new pieces she's worn throughout 2017 comes to a massive £119,000 ($160,000) - her most expensive year yet.
Femail estimated that in 2016 she wore clothing worth more than £174,170 ($233,072), however this took into account items she already owned and re-wore, making the total spend more likely to sit around the £100K ($133,800) mark.
Below FEMAIL reveals the new purchases Kate has been sporting on official engagements, only taking into account items that haven't been seen before in public.
These include her most expensive outfits of the year - the dusky pink ensemble she wore to Pippa's wedding that came in at £11,500 ($15,400) and a Chanel outfit she sported in Paris costing almost £13,000 ($17,400).
