As noted by Page Six, Kate Middleton is no stranger to repeatedly wearing various items from her closets, such as her go-to pair of boots or some of her favorite coats and dresses. Likewise, for the 2021 Earthshot Prize Awards held in London, the Duchess of Cambridge chose to pull out a previously worn Alexander McQueen Grecian-style dress in an eye-catching lavender color. As stated by the outlet, Middleton initially wore the gown (cinched with a white belt) to a July 2011 BAFTA event in Los Angeles shortly after she got married to her husband, Prince William.
However, for its reappearance ten years later, the Duchess of Cambridge chose to switch things up by adding a glittery gold belt to the dress. The dress was clearly appropriate for the venue, as the environmentally-focused ceremony requested that attendees avoid purchasing new garb for the awards. The Duke of Cambridge similarly followed suit, given that the prince revived a green velvet jacket that he’d previously worn in 2019 to an event celebrating Centrepoint’s 50th anniversary (via People).
