Kate's pricey parenting shopping list for Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Louis

The swaddle

Swaddles keep young babies warm and comfy in their early stages. A four pack from this company costs up to £50.95 for three. It is £15 for one cotton muslin swaddle.

The shoes

Prince George wore a pair of Start-Rite baby shoes for an adorable portrait in 2014.

The sweet little Mary-Janes were worn with shorts, a shirt and a vest. Similar shoes, the “Cuddle” style, cost £29.99 from the UK brand.

George, Charlotte and Louis all enjoyed the G.H.Hurt & Son super fine merino wool shawl.

The shawl, from the Nottingham company, costs £62.

Kate Middleton’s parenting has straddled both traditional royal trends and modern practises.

Show director at The Baby Show Zoe Bonser told Express.co.uk: “Kate is seen as traditional and this probably down to the responsibilities that Prince George will have one day.

“For instance, the children are always dressed in traditional British clothing for public appearances and Kate is happy for them to appear in photo calls.”

Early life

Kate Middleton, or Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, was born on 9 January 1982 at the Royal Berkshire Hospital, Reading, England.

She was born to Michael and Carole Middleton, a former flight dispatcher and air hostess. The couple founded a party supplies company, Party Pieces, in 1987 – now estimated to be worth £30 million.

Kate has a younger sister Pippa Matthews, 34, and a younger brother James Middleton, 31.

Education

Kate and her family moved to Amman, Jordan, in 1984, where the future Duchess was educated at an English-speaking nursery school.

After moving back to Berkshire the family sent Kate to private school, St Andrews School. She went on to briefly study at Downe House before moving onto Marlborough College where she boarded.

For university the young Kate attended the University of St Andrews in Fife, Scotland. Here she was awarded an undergraduate MA (2:1 Hons) in history of art.

Relationship with Prince William

Kate met Prince William when they were both studying at St Andrews, and both living in St Salvator’s Hall. Famously, William reportedly took a fancy to Kate after she wore a see-through dress during a fashion show.

In 2003 the couple began dating and lived together during their second year of university.

The couple split in April 2007, however, in October they were back together.

Wedding

Prince William proposed to Kate Middleton with his late mother Princess Diana’s engagement ring in October 2010. The couple were holidaying in Kenya at the time.

On 29 April 2011 they married at Westminster Abbey with a whopping 26 million watching the event live.

Kate wore an Alexander McQueen dress worth a reported £250,000 on the big day.
