Before she was a duchess, Kate was known to enjoy a fancy dress party or two! For Americans, we would equate that to a costume party, which is popular this time of year with Halloween next week.
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.
In case she needs inspiration for future fancy dress parties, wouldn’t it be fun to see Kate (or our readers!) dressed as:
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!
