Kate Middleton Recycles D&G Skirt Suit With Opaque Tights & Her Go-To Pumps

Kate Middleton may be royalty, but she’s not above rewearing her favorites.

For an appearance at Evelina London Children’s Hospital today, the 38-year-old recycled a Dolce & Gabbana skirt suit. The classic tweed set has been in the Duchess of Cambridge’s wardrobe since February 2019.

Activities take place on the ward or in play rooms. The Hospital Programme runs in three other children's hospitals in London – Great Ormond Street Hospital, Newham University Hospital and The Royal London Hospital in Whitechapel, working with nursing staff, hospital teachers and specialists. Over the past 15 years over 20,000 children (aged 0-18) have benefited from the creative workshops which include photography, animation, sculpture and textiles.

Kate styled her Dolce & Gabbana set today in a manner similar to the way she first wore it in February 2019. At the “Mental Health in Education” conference in London, she teamed the suit with dark tights and Tod’s pumps.
