Kate Middleton Dons Royal Rewear at Father-in-Law's Second Coronation

Once again, Kate Middleton is reminding us that she's all for recycling her best outfits—and paying a sweet tribute while she's at it.

On Wednesday, the Princess of Wales—also known as the Duchess of Rothesay in Scotland—took a page from the late Queen Elizabeth's style book and stunned in all blue while attending the National Service of Thanksgiving and Dedication for King Charles and Queen Camilla in Scotland (aka the king's Scottish coronation). The princess arrived at St. Giles’ Cathedral in a royal blue coat dress with a velvet collar by Catherine Walker & Co. She accessorized the look with a matching handbag, blue heels and a fascinator that would make Zara Tindall proud. But there were quite a few things about this stunning outfit that caught our eye.

First, we noticed that Princess Catherine included sweet tributes to not one, but two members of the royal family. She donned a Japanese pearl choker with a diamond clasp that previously belonged to her late grandmother-in-law, Queen Elizabeth. And she paid tribute to Princess Diana by wearing a pair of pearl drop earrings and a pearl bracelet that were owned by her late mother-in-law.

Next, if you look closely, you may recognize that the blue dress is a royal rewear from the Easter church outing in April (pictured below). For the occasion, she sported the coat dress with a matching clutch, a blue version of a Lock & Co. pillbox hat and her go-to suede Gianvito 105 heels in the praline color.

Additionally, the princess wore the same exact coat to the Commonwealth Day Service in March 2022. She completed the look with a blue hat and navy blue suede heels and carried a black clutch purse to coordinate with Prince William.
