Duchess Catherine believes there are more important things to think about than what she wears.

Duchess Catherine isn't concerned with fashion

According to stylist and associate editor at Harper's Bazaar magazine, Sara Parker Bowles - who is married to the Duchess of Cornwall's son, Tom - the 32-year-old royal has more important things to think about than what she is wearing, despite often being photographed sporting luxury labels.

Sara told The Telegraph newspaper: "We've talked about designers we admire in the past and she's always very complimentary about what I wear but, clearly, she feels she's got more important things to think about - and that's what makes her so endearing."

Sara - who married Tom in Oxfordshire in 2006 wearing a Sarah Burton-designed gown - enjoyed the attention that the wedding garnered but struggled to handle the criticism her look received on her big day.

She explained: "It's lovely to have all of that attention, but having everybody dissecting what you look like, what you're wearing - it's quite a strange thing."

The pretty blonde made a name for herself in the fashion industry by starting out as UK Vogue editor, Alexandra Schulman's PA, but claims she was "the worst in the world".

However, her career was saved by the fashion bible's then deputy editor who offered her a job in the features section of the magazine.

She explained: "Justine Picardie, who was deputy editor of Vogue at the time, totally saved me and took me into the features fold."
