Everyone’s Talking About Kate Middleton’s Vaccination Outfit (Spoiler: It’s a Royal Rewear)

Back in the spring of 2020, Kate Middleton and Prince William announced a plan for their royal foundation to help frontline workers battle against COVID-19. Meanwhile, the Duchess of Cambridge also launched a community photo project, which would eventually become the book Hold Still, a collection of images that “tell the stories of the challenges [the U.K.] faced, but also how we came together in the most extraordinary of times.”

Now, after her efforts to help the community, Middleton has finally received her first dose of the coronavirus vaccine. She documented the moment on her joint Instagram account with Prince William, saying, “Yesterday I received my first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine at London’s Science Museum. I’m hugely grateful to everyone who is playing a part in the rollout—thank you for everything you are doing.”

In the photo, Middleton is wearing a ribbed top by H&M that she’s owned for multiple years, which is why the exact blouse is no longer available online. However, there’s a nearly identical version that retails for $10. The duchess completed the look with a pair of classic jeans by & Other Stories and bobble hoop earrings by Liv Thurlwell.

This isn’t the first time Middleton has worn the H&M top. She previously donned the tee back in 2016 when she visited the Isles of Scilly and then again during the royal tour of Canada. At the time, the duchess paired it with a navy-blue blazer by Smythe, followed by a chic white coat.

Middleton received her first dose a little over a week after her husband got his at the Science Museum, as well. When Prince William shared a snap of his vaccination (and gave royal followers a glimpse at his impressive arms), he captioned the photo with a similar sentiment, saying, “On Tuesday I received my first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. To all those working on the vaccine rollout—thank you for everything you’ve done and continue to do.”

As one user commented on Middleton's post, “Jab well done, Your Royal Highness!” We couldn't have said it any better ourselves.
