Regardless of whether you think the Duchess of Cambridge is a sartorial genius or a repeat offender, one thing is clear: she knows what she likes.

“Although it’s very conservative, there is something that sets her apart from just your average nice, conservative, well-brought-up girl,” bespoke designer Katherine Hooker tells New York of her client’s style.

“I think a lot of people think that she dresses very boringly, that she should be more fashion-forward and all that, but I think that she’s a very strong person, she has a strong personality.”

Middleton also exercises her right to refusal: “There are some things that she’s definitely like, No,” Hooker reveals. “[She’s someone] who really know what works, what she likes, what she doesn’t like.” Tell us: What do you think of the Duchess’s style?

I love her style. I think that if more young girls followed her thoughts on beauty, they would be able to win their “Prince” too. Men and boys don’t go for the shabby look that so many girls think is in style now.

I like her style, but I think it is for an ordinary woman not for a queen.
She must add some royal touch!
