The Perfect Father-In-Law? Prince Charles Foots Duchess Kate's &Pound;35,000 Clothes Bill

Who: The Artist Formerly Know As Kate Middleton.
What: Despite her love of recycling looks and much-publicised reliance on high street brands to fulfil her fashion needs, it seems that Duchess Kate has still managed to incur a hefty clothes bill this year. And guess who's footing it? Prince Charles, apparently.

Charles has reportedly agreed to pay for the Duchess of Cambridge's 'work' wardrobe, including anything she wears to official engagements out of his official Household budget.

Bonus info: This news has certainly caused Prince Charles to go up in our estimation because as things stand, Kate's estimated shopping bill adds up to more than £35,000 this year. That's equivalent to 205 pairs of the Duchess' beloved LK Bennett nude pumps.
