On royal repeat! Duchess Kate rewore one of her most flattering dresses ever for a day of engagements in Bedfordshire, U.K., on Wednesday, August 24.
The royal, 34, joined husband Prince William to open the Youthscape Center in Luton wearing a Lasa poppy-print dress by L.K. Bennett. The structured white column dress, which has elbow-length sleeves, is sprinkled with bold blue flowers all over and stops right at the knee. She stood tall in the brand’s nude Fern napa leather heels and carried a neutral Nina trench clutch, also from L.K. Bennett. A pair of sapphire-and-diamond earrings matched her 12-carat engagement ring, an heirloom from the late Princess Diana.
The Duchess of Cambridge first wore the frock — along with the same earrings — in April 2014 for a royal tour of Australia. On her trip to the land down under, the mom of Prince George, 3, and Princess Charlotte, 15 months, opted for a darker pair of heels, a bright blue clutch, a Mappin and Webb pendant and a silver Cartier Ballon Bleu watch.
On Wednesday, when she and Prince William arrived at the Youthscape Center, which assists young people in emotional growth, some of the children were already hard at work in the brand-new kitchen, baking a batch of brownies for their very special guests.
“When I try to do this with George at home, chocolate and the golden syrup goes everywhere,” Duchess Kate said of her son. “He makes so much mess. It’s chaos.”
In May, she pulled out another look seen in 2014. She headed over to Sir Ben Ainslie’s sailing headquarters in Portsmouth, England, in a nautical-inspired Alexander McQueen silk blouse with blue piping and gold buttons, which she paired with a wool crepe pencil skirt.
