For the millionth time, Kate Middleton follows the royal protocol and does not accept free swag from designers or publicists. Designer Katherine Hooker, whose clothes have been worn by both Kate and Pippa on numerous occasions, tells the Huffington Post, “[Kate] doesn’t take free clothes, and I’ve heard that from other people who sent her things. She always comes to the shop, which is nice. And we’ve sent her a few things when she didn’t have time to come in.” What about Pippa, though? All those LK Bennetts must add up.
