Kate Middleton is fast learning the royal tradition of repeating dresses.

Kate joins the royal recyclers
Always in the public eye for her admirable style, the Duchess Of Cambridge made news for taking her favourite coat out for a second outing. Following the royal recycling tradition, Kate wore the same periwinkle blue Jacquard coat dress for Prince Phillip's 90th birthday church service (June 12) that she wore in 2009 for the wedding of her husband's close friend, Nicholas van Cutsem. Not all was lost though- she added a fresh angle to her look with a jaunty blue fascinator and nude heels.

This came days after she attended the wedding of close friend and jockey Sam Waley-Cohen and Annabel Ballin in the same fitted monochrome spotted dress she was photographed in four years ago when leaving Boujis nightclub. She also wore the same black hat that she had donned earlier in the day to watch her husband take part in his first Trooping the Colour parade.
