Kate Middleton recycles dress she wore to Charlotte’s christening for Anzac Day service

Kate Middleton recycled a chic coat dress that she previously wore years earlier to commemorate Anzac Day on Monday morning.

Back in 2015, the 40 year old wore a stunning white Alexander McQueen coat dress for her now six year old daughter Princess Charlotte's christening.

And the Duchess of Cambridge, who recently rang in her son Louis' fourth birthday, proved she was a massive fan of the ensemble as she re-wore it for her latest appearance at Westminster Abbey alongside her husband, Prince William.

The royal cut an elegant figure in the midi-length number which features structured collared lapels, and she teamed it with a monochrome headband by milliner Jane Taylor.

Kate looked dazzling as she accessorised with Princess Diana's Collingwood earrings while toting her belongings in a chic, black clutch.

The brunette appeared in great spirits as she strutted along in a pair of towering black stiletto heels for the event.

Anzac Day is a national day of remembrance in Australia and New Zealand, and marks the anniversary of the start of the First World War Gallipoli landings.

As well as wearing the coat dress to her daughter Charlotte's christening, she wore it to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding a few years later.

Kate is known for being thrifty when it comes to her wardrobe and loves to repeat an outfit and re-wear her favourite shoes.

Kate and William's appearance on Monday came after the pair enjoyed a trip to the French Alps with their children, Prince George, eight, Princess Charlotte, six, and Prince Louis, three.

The hands-on parents reportedly saw their trip to Courchevel, France, "as the perfect opportunity for family time".

Speaking to Us Weekly, a source said: "During the pandemic, George begged William to take him skiing once everything reopened and his dad made it happen."

During the lavish break to France, William and Kate are believed to have stayed at a family friend's $5million, six-bedroom chalet.

And though their little ones may have been away from school, the couple was determined to keep the learning up as George and Charlotte reportedly had private ski lessons and practised their French.

Explaining the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's decision, the insider added: "Kate and William feel it's important for the children to be multilingual."
