Kate Middleton Rewears Gorgeous Jenny Packham Gown & Pays Tribute to Princess Diana

As a mother of three, Kate Middleton is basically a professional multitasker. Last night, the Duchess of Cambridge, 36, somehow managed to rewear a gown and pay homage to her late mother-in-law, Princess Diana, at the same time.

K-Middy donned her trusty teal Jenny Packham dress to attend a gala honoring the Tusk charity with Prince William. Not only is the Middleton favorite striking, but it also bears an uncanny resemblance to a gown Diana wore on a number of occasions.

Kate first donned the pleated gown at a gala celebrating the London 2012 Olympics at The Royal Albert Hall. But it was the delicate lace and buttoned back that truly reminded us of Princess Di.

You see, the Duchess of Wales wore a navy velvet Catherine Walker number with a lace back nearly identical to Kate’s several times before her tragic passing.
