Kate Middleton’s see-through dress that she wore as part of a university fashion show in 2002 is could now be worth £100,000.
Middleton wore the Charlotte Todd knitted slip at a St. Andrews University charity fashion show.
Her catwalk debut reportedly marked the first time her husband-to-be Prince William first saw the attractive brunette, reports Contact-music.
Miss Middleton wore the silk outfit, designed by fashion student Charlotte Todd, during a show at St Andrews University in 2002.
Prince William was photographed watching his future bride, whose lacy underwear was clearly visible under the slinky garment.
After the show the dress was returned to Miss Todd, who packed it away in her mother's wardrobe, where it has remained ever since.
The graduate, who has not pursued a career in fashion design and now works in an aquarium, spoke of her pride in playing such a key role in royal history.
She has already turned down an offer of £1,000 for the dress and has vowed never to sell it - but experts estimate it could fetch a staggering £100,000 in the future.
Todd, who now works in an aquarium, has kept the outfit ever since it was returned to her.
The dress now soled at a Kerry Taylor Auctions sale.
“It’s definitely a showstopping dress. I’d like to think I played my part in history and in fashion history,” Todd said.
