There is a stereotype that famous people try not to wear the same outfits twice, but life has shown that modern celebrities favor the trend of sustainable fashion, and members of the royal family are no exception. The royal ladies are often seen recycling their favorite outfits, adding just some little tweaks that give their “old” getups a fresh look.
Here at Bright Side, we’re recalling the times that Kate Middleton, Meghan Markle, and Princess Diana went shopping in their own closets and looked stunning in the same outfits more than once.
Kate wore this scarlet red skirt suit at least 3 times in 2011, 2014, and 2017. The duchess tweaked this look using different accessories.
In March of 2012, the duchess chose yellow flowers to decorate her gray tweed coat, while in June of the same year, she added a hat to her look.
Kate debuted this lavender dress in 2017 during her visit to Germany, and she put it on again for an event in London, England in 2018.
A white dress with a blue poppy print was donned by the Duchess of Cambridge in 2014 during her visit to Australia. She then recycled it in 2016 during an event in Luton, England.
The duchess wore this long teal dress with intricate lace detailing in 2012 and 2018. The clutch seems to be the same, but Kate chose different hairstyles for these 2 looks.
Kate wore this long gown with a black lace overlay at a film premiere in London in 2012 and recycled it during an event at the Natural History Museum in London, England the following year.
Both times Kate wore this golden brocade coat dress, she was attending a wedding in 2006 and 2011.
Meghan first appeared in this striped sleeveless dress in Sydney, Australia in 2018, and then repeated it a year later in Cape Town, South Africa.
The duchess first stepped out in this blue dress with buttons in 2018 during her visit to Tonga, and then she wore it again during her tour around South Africa in 2019.
The duchess wore this purple dress with long sleeves and a long skirt twice throughout 2019. In January, Meghan added a bright red coat and matching high-heeled shoes.
Meghan put on this light beige trench dress for an event in London, England in 2018, and then repeated it in 2019 during her visit to South Africa.
Diana stunned the public with this navy, striped dress with a voluminous bubble skirt twice throughout 1987 — first in Lisbon, Portugal, and then in Cannes, France.
Can you spot the difference between these 2 looks? In the first picture from 1986, the princess is wearing the polka-dot dress with a peplum skirt, while the next year, the princess wore a tweaked version of the outfit without a peplum.
In 1981, Diana wore this pastel-colored striped shirt like a cardigan over a matching dress, and then again in 1983, she donned it buttoned up.
