Kate Middleton has revealed she will change her Christmas outfit five times on the day.

The Duchess of Cambridge, who will spend her first Christmas Day as a royal at Sandringham in Norfolk, let slip her plans as she chatted to guests at The Sun's Military awards.

The stylish royal, who married Prince Willaim in April, confided in the partner of Marine Sam Clements, 20, who was nominated for the Outstanding Sailor or Marine award.

Nineteen-year-old Sheridan Bowler said: "She said she was looking forward to Christmas with Prince William's family, and said she had to change dress five times on Christmas Day. I couldn't believe it."

Kate has become a worldwide style icon and is known for championing the British high street with her outfit choices. She is often seen wearing pieces from high street favourites Reiss, Zara, Jigsaw, Topshop and Hobbs.

She has managed to wow the fashion world over and over and has been long applauded for not being afraid to recycle her outfits time after time.

Kate got it right once again on Wednesday when she slipped into a Ralph Lauren sweater dress, above, to visit youngsters at Centrepoint's Camberwell Foyer homeless shelter in south London with her husband.

She teamed up the polo-inspired, figure-hugging dress with a black belt and black boots.
