Kate Middleton Just Wore a Dress She Sported Earlier This Year (Oh, & It’s From Zara)

Kate Middleton loves a good royal re-wear. You know, when the Duchess of Cambridge reaches into her closet and pulls out a piece that she’s previously worn. Today was one of those days.

On Tuesday, the Duchess of Cambridge recently visited the University College London to learn more about its "Children of the 2020s" study. According to Middleton, the new program "will illustrate the importance of the first five years and provide insights into the most critical aspects of early childhood, as well as the factors which support or hinder positive lifelong outcomes.”

For the occasion, the 39-year-old sported a black-and-white houndstooth-printed dress from one of her go-to brands, Zara. The piece features a high-neck collar and tons of ruffles. She topped off the look with a pair of silver snakeskin heels from Hugo Boss and diamond earrings from Mappin & Webb.

According to DailyMail, this isn’t the first time Middleton has rocked the dress for a public engagement. She debuted the piece back in January during an outing in Bradford.

We’re not surprised the mother of two opted to rewear one of her favorite pieces, considering today’s event was very close to her heart.

“Our early childhoods shape our adult lives and knowing more about what impacts this critical time is fundamental to understanding what we as a society can do to improve our future health and happiness,” Middleton said in a personal statement on Instagram. “I am committed to supporting greater in-depth research in this vital area and I’m delighted to be meeting all those behind the study at this early stage.”

We don’t think we’ll ever get tired of Kate’s wardrobe.
