Alice Temperley, who is one of the 34-year-old royal's go-to designers, says it was a "lovely surprise" seeing the Duchess wearing some of her designs whilst touring India recently.

She told the July issue of HELLO! Fashion Monthly magazine: "It was a lovely surprise. It always is. Naturally, I'm flattered; the importance [of Kate] can't be underestimated. [Kate] does wear our clothes a lot, but it's not planned. You don't know if she is going to wear something until the photographs appear.

"I think Kate is doing a great job. I think it's very clever the way she mixes designers and high street [non-designer], and wears a broad array of labels."

Meanwhile, Jane Taylor, the Duchess' headdress maker previously revealed she "almost fell into the road" when she first saw her wearing her headpiece.

She said: "I was going for a run and I saw a billboard with images flashing up, one of which was of the christening. It was such a shock, I nearly fell into the road.

"[I] wouldn't ever use them for anyone else for the first two or three years. All I can say is that it's a huge honour to work with the Duchess. She's a great ambassador for British fashion."
