  • Kate Middleton wore a delicate silk Jenny Packham dress to the wedding of Emily McCorquodale, first seen during her tour of Canada

    Kate Middleton’s no stranger to a spot of style recycling, having worn the same Emillia Wickstead dress twice last month alone.

    And the Duchess indulged again at the wedding of Prince William’s cousin over the weekend, wearing the same Jenny Packham dress we first saw last year.

    KATE MIDDLETON: STYLE RE-RUNS

    We first spied the Duchess of Cambridge in the pretty silver and marble grey hand-painted Jenny Packham chinoiserie silk dress during her royal tour of America and Canada, when she wore it to watch Prince William play polo.

    At the time Kate teamed the delicate, dove-grey number with nude sandals and her favourite nude box clutch, as well as her glossy brunette locks and megawatt smile.

    Fast-forward 12 months, and the Jenny Packaham dress has been given a second outing, at the wedding of Prince William’s cousin Emily McCorquodale, in the village of Stoke Rochford in Lincolnshire.

    This time, Kate teamed the dress with a slimline grey £795 Katherine Hooker dress coat, with intricate embroidered sleeves and a matching embroidered waist, which she wore to last year’s Order of the Garter service in London.

    And Kate’s style recycling didn’t stop there.

    CELEBRITY ACCESSORIES ROUND-UP

    On her head, the Duchess wore a smart beige hat by the Whiteley Hat Company, which was first seen at the Epsom Races last year, when Kate teamed it with a Reiss dress and her favourite L.K.Bennett shoes.

    Talking of shoes, Kate’s faithful L.K.Bennett sledge heels were on show again, with the £185 nude shoes completing her low-key look.

    Last month it was revealed the Queen is very much a fan of Kate Middleton’s budget-friendly wardrobe, and feels the Duchess is setting a good example by wearing her clothes more than once.
