Kate has done it again!

The Duchess of Cambridge was spotted wearing the same $2,000 pale pink Emilia Wickstead coat dress twice in just 11 days. She first wore the frock last Friday, May 18, for a luncheon at Windsor Castle, recycling it Tuesday for a tea party at Buckingham Palace.

Kate used a half-up hairstyle, Jane Corbett hat and her favorite L.K. Bennett pumps to freshen the dress for its second go-round. For the first wear, she'd paired it with sparkly drop earrings, satin heels and loose waves.

The Duchess, a master at wardrobe remixing, jokingly dished on her dress with reporters at Tuesday's tea. "I've worn it before," she said, "as you all probably know."

The young royal's recycling has been widely documented, from her casual grocery store runs and official engagements to family weddings and group dinners.
