Kate Middleton's India And Bhutan Royal Tour Wardrobe Reportedly Cost $50,000

Spoiler alert: it's a lot.

Last week, we mere mortals were gifted with an array of brand new Kate Middleton outfits (at last!) during her seven-day tour of India and Bhutan. All in all, the Duchess of Cambridge wore 18 different outfits (and 40 different designer labels) in public, and we must admit, she nailed each one of them.

But according to E!, the "East-meets-West" tour wardrobe didn't come cheap. They're reporting Catherine's Indian and Bhutan royal tour ensembles cost a whopping $50,000 in total.

We mean, what do you expect from a future queen?

Here's five of the Duchess' most expensive outfits:

Cost: $8,675

It is reported that the beaded Jenny Packham gown donned by the mother of Prince George and Princess Charlotte cost $6,000. And those Amrapali Jewels blue lapis earrings upped the cost with their $1,925 price tag.

Cost: $7,875

In thanks to the pricey Kiki McDonough Lavender Amethyst Pear and Oval Drop earrings ($5,500), the 34-year-old's archery outfit was also up there in terms of cost. The ensemble also consisted of a fabric hand-woven by Mrs. Kelzang Wang Mo of Bhutan, which E! is reporting took five people and more than three months to tailor it for Kate.

Cost: $6,985

While meeting the world leader, Kate made sure to don something special. For the occasion, Middleton sported a $1,395 Alice Temperley Desdemona lace dress and another pair of expensive Kiki McDonough earrings, this time costing $4,950 in thanks to it being custom-made to commemorate the birth of Princess Charlotte.

Cost: $6,695

In celebration of the Queen's upcoming birthday, the Duchess donned a beautiful Alice Temperley Delphia skirt and matching crop top that cost $4,520. The Prada bag in hand upped the price by $1,340.

Cost: $5,385

Kate almost suffered a Marilyn Monroe moment in her free-flowing Emilia Wickstead gown which rang in at $2,500. She paired the look with Rupert Sanderson pink pumps ($600) and Temple of Heaven earrings ($1,495).

And if you're wondering what Kate's cheapest outfit looked like, it's the printed dress she wore to feed baby elephants and rhinos. It's a Topshop steal for $140. The whole outfit, with recycled wedges and Accessorize earrings, comes in at smooth $208.

What have we learned here? Looking good doesn't come cheap...but we'll always have Topshop.
