Catherine, Princess of Wales, has always been a more progressive member of the British Royal Family.

And this is demonstrated in her willingness to often re-wear clothing items, as this act of re-using is not only beneficial for the British tax payers (less money spent on clothing), but is also kind to the planet, as it reduces the amount of clothing waste ending up in a landfill.

Let’s take a look at some of the best times that the princess has stepped out in style whilst dusting off an old favourite.

June 2022 was when the Princess of Wales first wore this stunning Alessandra Rich polka-dot dress. She understandably had to give this gem another outing for Wimbledon a month later.

A brooch and a matching fascinator really elevated this Jenny Packham dress that Catherine wore in Canada in 2016 (left), whilst in 2018, the princess decided to keep the look more paired back, accessorising the royal blue dress with a simple brown clutch.

This coat has actually been worn a total of six times (in public) and is over 10 years old – which you would hope to get from a good quality coat!

On the left Kate is seen wearing it in 2013, with a black turtle neck underneath, whilst in February 2023 she stepped out in the classic coat with a red turtle neck tucked under.

Princess Catherine made a bright statement when visiting Australia in 2014 and stepped out looking just as ravishing in the same dress in 2015.
