Kate Middleton's Christmas jumper is perfect for the school run but if it's out of your price range, we have some cosy dupes so you can shop the look for less.
The Christmas jumper tradition is one of our favourites of the festive season, but finding the perfect knit can be a challenge - especially if you want to wear it over the post-Christmas cold winter months. The Princess of Wales has a savvy way of making sure she looks festive without being mistaken for a Christmas decoration, as she opts for more natural hues and Fair Isle patterns over glitter sequinned jumpers.
Kate was spotted wearing a Holland Cooper Fair Isle knit in cream (RRP £179) when she took part in CBeebies Bedtime Stories. Thrifty Kate loves the jumper so much that she re-wore it to decorate her Christmas tree ahead of the 2022 Together at Christmas carol concert and the Prince and Princess of Wales' official Instagram account re-shared an image from the video to promote this year's festive event.
