Dress queen Kate Middleton doesn't think she's trendy
But the 30-year-old Duchess doesn't understand why people are so keen to copy her look.
'Kate has been amazed to find herself setting trends when she is not at all trendy herself,' a friend tells the Daily Mail.
Kate often shops in high street stores such as Reiss, Whistles and LK Bennett and earlier this year wore a dress she'd borrowed from mum Carole to give her first public speech.
She's said to get her eye for a cheap deal from the 57-year-old businesswoman.
'Carole is a true bargain-hunter,' a source tells You.
'She has always been very strict
with her money and would never allow her daughter to be ripped off - so
she taught her how to barter.'
