Kate Middleton wore a repeat outfit and looked the glammest

One of the things we L-O-V-E about Kate Middleton is that, like us non-royals, she is not afraid to repeat outfits. Just this week, the Duchess of Cambridge attended the East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices Gala and rocked a totally gorgeous Jenny Packham gown, that we also saw her wear a few years back.

Here’s the gown this week in all of its glory:

She also wore the gown in 2011 to her first official royal outing after marrying Prince William:

TBH, it’s gorgeous and picks up totally different colors depending on the light. It also looks like Kate paired it with the same clutch for both wears. Again, love.

Like we said, Kate is known for outfit repeats (as well as shopping at affordable places like Zara) which seriously does make royal style feel slightly more accessible.

For example, she has worn this brown Lock and Co. cap a number of times:

Ditto this bright red Alexander McQueen suit which we’ve seen her wear on the reg.

Truly, who says we can only wear our extra-special outfits once? If you find something you love, wear it! At least, that’s the Kate Middleton way. And who are we to argue with the Duchess of Cambridge?
