Princess Charlotte may be only three years old, but she has already won over the world with her sweet (and rather queenlike) waves and the occasional somersault. Now it looks as if we’ve found her the perfect playmate: Sweden’s Princess Leonore. The four-year-old daughter of Princess Madeleine and her British-American husband, Christopher O’Neill, is getting some internet fame after video footage from her baby sister’s June 8 christening went viral.
The Duchess of Cambridge may be renowned for her innate sense of style but the royal tour of Norway and Sweden proved the perfect opportunity for the 36-year-old to demonstrate her sartorial powers on a global scale.In true diplomatic fashion, the royal dabbled in Scandinavian minimalism donning the likes of homegrown labels, Fjällräven and Ida Sjöstedt.But the Duchess of Cambridge well and truly waved the sartorial flag for Britain during her four-day stint, as her wardrobe boasted the likes of Alexander McQueen, Mulberry and Princess Diana’s go-to brand, Catherine Walker.And the tour was also a prime opportunity for the pregnant royal to champion her favourite maternity label of the moment, Seraphine.From fairy tale-inspired gowns to sell-out Chanel, the Duchess of Cambridge proved she’s one of the best-dressed royals to have graced the history books but how much did her designer-laden wardrobe cost?As we can’t put a figure on some of her custom-made pieces (by the likes of Catherine Walker and Alexander McQueen), we can only calculate an estimate of her ready-to-wear looks.And it turns out, the Duchess of Cambridge’s highly-coveted Scandi wardrobe cost approximately £17,256.But with five looks unaccounted for (including that show-stopping Alexander McQueen cape gown), it could well be in the region of £25,000 or more in total.Though it’s hardly surprising, as her 2017 wardrobe set the royal back a cool £119,000.Ouch.Follow us on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter for nonstop inspiration delivered fresh to your feed, every day.Read more from Yahoo Style UK: The Duchess of Cambridge dons Dolce and Gabbana for final stint of royal tourThe Duchess of Cambridge’s top maternity style momentsInside Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden’s Scandi wardrobe
