The British label created the world’s most-talked-about wedding gown when Kate married William in 2011.Since then, chief Mc Queen designer, Sarah Burton OBE, has become Kate’s go-to dressmaker. This is is the ‘ethical’ luxury fashion label run by Lavinia Brennan and Prince William’s childhood friend Lady Natasha Rufus Isaacs.

Just 24 hours after she wore its black-and-white minidress on her 25th birthday, it had sold out.

But Kate appears to have shied away from Issa since Camilla Al Fayed, daughter of Mohamed Al Fayed, took over the brand in 2011. Kate worked for a year at Jigsaw’s head office as an assistant accessories buyer from 2006.

Kate owns more than a dozen sets of earrings from the Sloane Street jeweller, including a pair of green amethyst, yellow gold and diamond oval drops, believed to have been a Christmas present from William in 2011. Her wardrobe is cluttered with its dresses, coats and jackets – not to mention her ubiquitous nude Sledge heels and Natalie bag.
