The Duchesses have both rocked recycled outfits for a festive family lunch with the Queen.
Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle arrived at Kensington Palace yesterday in dresses they’ve been seen wearing before.
Mum-of-three Kate, 36, opted to repeat a pink Stella McCartney dress that she last wore seven years ago at Prince Philip’s 90th birthday party in 2011.
Despite being a private event, the distinctive ruffled frock was spotted through the window of the car as she arrived with husband Prince William and their eldest son George, five.
Eagle-eyed royal fans were quick to recognise the distinguishing bow around the Duchess of Cambridge’s neck.
While the designer number usually comes with a hefty price tag, it was reported at the time that the Duchess of Cambridge snagged the $2526 dress for just $540.
Pregnant Meghan, 37, also chose to re-use a dress, one from a TV appearance back in 2016, just months before she started dating Prince Harry.
The floral Erdem dress is an interesting choice for Meghan as the outfit is from before her days as a Duchess.
She’s also now in the second trimester of her pregnancy and has a noticeable bump.
However, it’s not the first time either leading ladies have recycled their outfits, with Kate famously wearing an old pale yellow Alexander McQueen dress to Meghan’s nuptials to Prince Harry in May.
She’d worn the coat dress twice before, at Princess Charlotte’s christening in 2015 and the Queen’s birthday the following year.
During her royal tour through the South Pacific in October, Meghan brought back a navy blue tuxedo-style dress at an appearance in Auckland.
She was first seen in the $3800 designer number at the polo in 2017, where she was supporting Harry who was playing.
Meghan is also a proud advocate of sustainable fashion, with the Duchess of Sussex regularly choosing to wear ethical brands.
