Over the weekend, HM Queen Rania stepped out wearing an embellished Prada pencil skirt that looked very familiar. The reason being that she’s already worn the garment before, more specifically during a visit to the UK back in 2017. While two years ago, she styled the skirt with a grey turtleneck, for yesterday’s outing, she elevated her recycled fashion with a pink Bottega Veneta blouse, Gianvito Rossi pumps, and a rose-colored Loeffler Randall handbag.
Her Majesty’s sartorial choices have been deemed pretty approachable and accessible in recent weeks. Her choice to re-wear the Prada skirt comes after she was spotted wearing affordable high-street label Zara on more than one occasion — once in Amman then two weeks later in Dubai.
Indeed, the Queen’s outfits have proved to be an ongoing topic of interest. Earlier this year, Queen Rania’s office issued a rare official statement setting the record straight on the royal’s wardrobe. “Over the years, there has been a lot of talk about her majesty’s spending on clothing,” the statement read. ” The vast majority of her majesty’s clothing is either loaned to her by the role of fashion, or presents as gifts, or purchased at reduced preferential rates,” explained the statement.
Her Majesty is not the only royal to repurpose an ensemble recently— The Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton was recently photographed wearing an Alexander McQueen coat that she’s worn on several occasions in the past. Royals, sometimes, they can be just like us.
