$2500 for a clutch that looks like it can barely hold a tampon?? Jesus christ!

Make that 2,890 USD, because that's what the thing costs when the mere mortal orders it right now ... in blue >>

As she carries it in white, this may well be 'bepoke', which doesn't make it cheaper.

Although I believe it's already the 4th time she's using it - before TTC at Charles' 50th anniversary of PoW investiture, at the Baftas this year (then it was said it could be Prada), and probably also at the Trump dinner (not identified there).

Kate keeps spending like there is no tomorrow. To be seen in public with such a pricey clutch, which is barely visible anyway, and  looks too small even for a Barbie doll, is a slap in the face of the British taxpayers. She should hire a competent taylor like her mother-in-law. She'd look like a million dollars (and yes, HRH should bother, once in a while, to do fittings, because bodies change all the time, and especially after pregnancies), and she'd spend a lot less.

I’m quite sure she’s worn the shoes before, a good few years ago.

So, a +4500£ TOTALLY NEW outfit for Ascot (without counting the bespoke new hat and the old Kikis of £2916) and keeping in mind that at least the blouse is also bespoke. Is she insane?? ?? ?

And yet she is not able to make an effort for EACH, charity of which she is patron, at a time when they so much need!
She's getting into her role, my a$$

Although I like Kate's outfit, recycling would have made great headlines and provided some positive PR at a time when extravagance is especially frowned upon.

According to this Kate fashion blog that documents her fashion choices, the pumps are in fact new: https://whatkatewore.com/...r-royal-ascot/#more-59824. $745 Gianvito Rossi.

It drives me crazy that she already has such a similar dress. It's a very specific style and her having it in two only slightly different versions is ridiculous, especially at that price point.

Carrying a clutch that costs the equivalent of a large portion of the average person's monthly wage to a charity gala with the theme of addicts, many of whom end up homeless because of their addiction? You can't buy this level of callousness.

Honestly if I were a designer I'd think twice before letting Kate wear one of my designs. She takes almost everything, and seemingly on purpose, changes it into something dated and matronly. Even an old woman of today wouldn't be caught dead in this outfit. Even Anne, in her oldest recycled outfit, wouldn't look this bad. It's just dreadful no matter how you cut it. What makes it more ridiculous is the clothes in their original design are pretty conservative and not risky to start with so why change them like that?

Also she may look by nature older then her actual age but she isn't so unfortunate, like say Mathilde, that she looks like some old matron no matter what she wears. She can look young and fresh so it really makes no sense. William must have some grandma fetish or something since lets face it everything she does is to please him. Either that or she really is that challenged fashion wise.
