Kate instructs her private secretary Rebbecca Deacon to buy the dresses for her, according to the UK Daily Mail.
The Duchess of Cambridge pays full prince for her "high-end" custom outfits. The 30 year-old does not accept endorsements of any kind and has reportedly refused hundreds of free dresses by many fashion houses and designers.
Middleton is well known for recycling clothes such as her Emilia Wickstead dress, M Missoni coat dress and LK Bennett heels.
