A Kate Middleton super fan has revealed how she manages to copy every single outfit the Duchess wears by finding bargains on eBay.
Sharing photos of herself on her Instagram page lady.m.replikates 31-year-old Mallory Bowling says she can copy Kate’s stylish looks for a fraction of the price by scouring eBay and snapping up bargains.
She says she style-stalks the Duchess of Cambridge and as soon as she sees a new photo of her, Mallory leaps into action trying to find the outfit before everyone else does.
Often, it is the same designer dress Kate wears but because it is on eBay it is a lot less expensive.
Mallory first started hunting down Kate's outfits eight years ago after falling in love with the Issa engagement dress Kate wore when she announced her engagement to Prince William.
And the thrill of finding the outfit before anyone else isn't the only reason Mallory is so committed to being a 'repliKate'.
"If I know I have a tough day ahead I will put on a Kate outfit and immediately my confidence is boosted. I feel a connection to her and I’ve watched her grow in confidence over the years," she said.
But Mallory's lawyer husband admits he’s not quite as impressed with her clothing hobby, as she is often up all night bidding on clothes on eBay.
"In his wedding vows he even joked that he promised to put up with my love for Kate – love me, love Kate, is what I tell him!" Mallory laughs.
