Kate Middleton's style evolution

From St Andrews art history student to the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton has come a long way in 12 years and so has her style.

Where Jenny Packham was once her go-to designer, in recent years, Middleton has experimented with looks by fashion's chicest names, from Roksanda Ilincic to Roland Mouret. But what has remained unchanged is her love of L.K. Bennett pumps and a Breton top when off-duty. See for yourself in our round-up of the royal icon's style evolution.
