Kate Middleton has helped put the Royals on news agenda over the last year, and as a thank you from Buckingham Palace she is set to receive a £30,000 cash gift for her efforts.

Since marrying Prince William last April, an event which was viewed by millions around the world, Kate has been the focus of attention for new, younger fans of the Royal Family. However according to the Telegraph, Kate’s thank you bonus is mainly a gesture for donating her custom-made Alexander McQueen wedding gown to go on display at Buckingham Palace last summer. The white lace dress drew in an extra £3.5million in ticket sales for the palace compared to the year before and 75 per cent of the palace gift shop sales were from Kate and William-themed merchandise.
