However, it wasn't just designer brands that the 34-year-old turned to when selecting fitting accessories for her stylish outfits.

Kate, arrived for her visit to the slums of Mumbai on Sunday, wearing a pair of €55 nude wedges from high street store Monsoon and €10 Indian-style chandelier earrings from high street chain Accessorize.

The style icon paired them with a germanium pink and mint green dress from Mumbai-born designer Anita Dongre. The long-sleeved, loose-fitting €22 'Gulrukh' dress featured a long and flowing hemline that was perfect for the heat of the Indian city.

Later that evening Kate turned on the glamour as she changed into a sapphire blue Jenny Packham gown for a Bollywood gala dinner. The dress featured dazzling silver embroidery that gave a nod to the national dress.

A source recently revealed to Vanity Fair that Kate plans to use her tour of India and Bhutan to shake off recent criticism that she is the “Duchess of Drab".

And there are at least two outfit changes a day planned for the Duchess.

Vanity Fair also revealed that Kate, who has packed at least 20 outfits, will be showcasing more designs by Alexander McQueen, Jenny Packham, Emilia Wickstead, Alice Temperley, and Erdem.

“She has gone for designs that are simple yet elegant and expect lots of block color,” a source told Royal Watch. “She has had her mani and pedi done and her highlights freshened up to make sure she looks picture perfect and fresh.”
