Duchess Kate Turns Heads In A Previously Worn Lilac Dress During Her First Joint Outing With Prince William After Maternity Leave
Kate Middleton, the regal Duchess of Cambridge, looked stunning, as usual, in a cute lilac dress on her first joint engagement with Prince William since the birth of their third born, Prince Louis. The couple visited London for the first Global Ministerial Mental Health Summit at County Hall.
The Emilia Wickstead dress priced at £1,350 is actually the same one she wore last year in Hamburg, Germany. However, instead of the gorgeous red purse, she paired it with then, she chose a crocodile-print purse and nude Gianvito Rossi pumps priced at £695 and £510, respectively.
She capped off the look with a pair of diamond earrings from Mappin & Webb, which cost about £3,750, while the pendant costs £1,000.
We are not sure how the 36-year-old does it, but whether it is a new dress or formerly worn outfit, she always manages to wow us. She finished the simple but gorgeous look with her signature tousled hair.
Her husband was not left out in the recycling game, as he equally wore a suit he had donned back in Germany, with a lovely tie that matched his wife’s gown.
Their choice of wardrobe was meant not to impress, as the two-day event was organized to talk about the stigma surrounding mental health and the way forward. The royal pair, who has put mental health at the forefront of their public outreach, met with world experts and policymakers on the subject matter.
The highlight of the outing was when they were asked to add to a 6-inch by 6-inch painting done by Mr Vargas. Prince William immediately allowed his wife to have a go first, commenting that she was the "artsy one". She demurely added a white dab before the prince followed suit remarking,
“This is how you properly ruin a picture.”

The artist was delighted by their input, saying that the painting titled ‘Someone To Talk To’ was a project to show the collaborative effort it would require to address mental health problems.
