Kate Middleton Has Worn Her Alexander McQueen Royal Wedding Coat Dress Three Times Before

Kate Middleton arrived for the royal wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle with a flock of adorable bridesmaids in tow.

Holding onto 3-year-old daughter Princess Charlotte’s hand, the Duchess of Cambridge showed off what Kensington Palace reports as a “primrose yellow wool silk tailored coat” courtesy of Alexander McQueen — coincidentally the same British fashion house that made her wedding dress in 2011.

Middleton topped off her sunny pale yellow ensemble with matching floral-embellished hat designed by Philip Treacy. She’s also reportedly wearing Jimmy Choo heels, which wouldn’t be a surprise as she’s often seen sporting the London-based shoe brand.

The pumps featured a classic pointed toe silhouette and a neutral-toned hue, complementing the rest of her outfit for the occasion.

The 36-year-old — who gave birth to her third child, a son named Prince Louis, just last month — has worn the same dress in the past, including for the Queen’s birthday and Princess Charlotte’s christening.

It’s not unlike the princess to repeat a look and in fact, she wore several of the same maternity coats and dresses throughout her third pregnancy as she did while pregnant with Prince George and Prince Charlotte.
