It seems the Duchess of Cambridge has a lot on her plate this Christmas and will be needing several outfits for each appearance.

STV is reporting that Kate Middleton is already shopping around for the season and her Christmas celebrations at Sandringham. The Web site claims the Duchess has snagged herself items at Zara and LK Bennett.

The Daily Mail has also reported that Middleton has made a special request for two evening dresses from one of her favorite designer brand, Alexander McQueen. McQueen is the label behind Middleton's stunning wedding dress.

According to STV, royal etiquette expert Jean Broke-Smith told Grazia magazine that Kate will need a casual outfit for breakfast, a smart outfit - and a hat - for the morning church service, a dress for lunch, a cocktail dress for early evening drinks and a full-length dress for the evening meal.
