The Duchess has a refreshingly grounded approach to fashion

Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge are currently completing a royal tour of Belgium. The Duchess of Cambridge has again showed her thrifty side, re-wearing an outfit, while attending a ceremony to commemorate the centenary of the Battle of Passchendaele.

The Duchess first wore the white-coat dress to her daughter Princess Charlotte’s christening. For the tour, the Duchess matched the outfit with a white John lock and Company hat, and Balenciaga pearls.

As a part of her public life, the Duchess has become an unwitting fashion icon, with her outfit often making as many headlines as the royal’s actions. However, the Duchess is being praised for fighting off tradition and often re-wearing key pieces at different events.

The royal couple stood in silence for the Last Post, after which Prince William and the King of Belgium laid wreaths at the Menin Gate memorial in Ypres, which bears the names of more than 54,000 fallen soldiers aged between 15 and 60 who have no known grave.
