Kate had many opportunities to dress up as a child since her parents own Party Pieces, an online party supply store for all types of celebrations! Kate and William no doubt hosted fun house parties at 13A Hope Street while dating and living together at St. Andrews. Wish I was a fly on the wall for those events…
We’ve seen photographs of Kate dressed as a Native American Indian (albeit in a satin gown!,) a witch, an ‘80s roller disco queen, a chalet/ski bunny, and a nurse. Throughout all of these fancy dress costumes, Kate seems to choose an elegant gown and add some themed accessories to complete the outfit. As is her usual style, she mixes high-end pieces with High Street.
- Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz
- Elizabeth Bennett from Pride and Prejudice
- A ballerina
- Lady Mary from Downton Abbey
- Alice from Alice in Wonderland
- Holly Golightly from Breakfast at Tiffany’s
- Princess Buttercup from The Princess Bride
Kate has her hands full with family and royal commitments, so it may be a few years before we see her in fancy dress again. Maybe the Cambridge’s will dress together for a family party as a gang of pirates or pumpkins! How cute!
What was your favorite costume/fancy dress outfit? What will you be this year for Halloween? I haven’t decided yet, so your ideas are most helpful!
