When the Duchess of Cambridge joined the Royal Family for the Christmas Day service at Sandringham, she wore a coat that was warm, stylish… and thoroughly out of date. Thousands of fashion fans were frustrated to find that Kate’s ‘new’ £685 double-breasted Turpin coat by British label Moloh has not been available to buy for at least two years. And it’s not the first time.
The Mail called Kate a “wardrobe hoarder”, claiming that ‘hoarding’ is now a deliberate strategy by the Duchess, who is keen to avoid causing fashion stampedes or, perhaps, coming face-to-face with women in the same outfit. So she often waits months, or even years, before wearing purchases.
