Kate Middleton might be the Duchess of Cambridge, but she’s just like us in that she loves to shop her own closet. On Thursday, February 3, the royal rewore a recycled tweed dress for a public outing with her in-laws Prince Charles, Prince of Wales, and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall. In a rare occurrence, Prince William was not in attendance.

Kate Middleton rewore the Catherine Walker gray tweed dress for a visit on of behalf of The Prince’s Foundation—Prince Charles’ foundation which supports the arts—in London. The dress falls to her knees, has long sleeves, and is fitted in the bodice with an A-line skirt that expands below the waist. The dress also has a few key details that make it memorable: a bold, black collar, and a belt at the waist with a black square buckle. The Duchess paired the look with a small black handbag, opaque black tights, and black pointed-toe heels. She wore her hair in a halfway updo with circular silver and black drop earrings and a ring.

And below, you can see the last time Kate Middleton wore the Catherine Walker dress, back in 2019 at the Foundling Museum:

In 2019, Middleton styled the dress similarly with black tights, a black bag, and black pointed-toe heels, but the outfit has a different vibe due to her hair, which she wore down with a side part and curls.

Back in November 2021, the Duchess of Cambridge attended the Royal Variety Performance in London. For the event, Middleton rewore an iconic emerald green Jenny Packham gown that she originally wore during a tour of Pakistan back in 2019. The striking green glittery column dress with long sleeves is definitely something even the Duchess of Cambridge wants to wear again and again.
