The Duchess of Cambridge – who is expecting her third baby with Prince William – has stepped out in a dress she wore while she was expecting Princess Charlotte.

Kate Middleton wore a long lace-sleeved Diane von Furstenberg Zarita gown, which she has had in her wardrobe since 2014.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were attending the Anna Freud National Centre gala, held at Kensington Palace, on Tuesday night (November 7 2017), when Prince George and Princess Charlotte’s mum recycled the number. 

The dress features a fitted bodice and waist with a fluted hem, and looked every inch of elegant on pregnant Kate.

The 35 year old wore her brunette locks down and finished off the look with a pair of the Queen’s earrings she’s fond of and a new diamond bracelet.

Kate kept it classy in a pair of heels and finished off the look with a black Prada clutch bag. 

However, Kate looked completely different when she wore the dress to the Royal Variety Performance in November 2014, almost exactly three years ago.

Kate would have been three months pregnant at the time with her daughter and wore her hair up into a sweeping bun.

Commenting on the stark difference, many pointed out they preferred Kate’s hair up rather than down with the detailed number.

A social media user wrote: “I think it’s a gorgeous gown but it looks so much better with her hair up.”

Meghan Markle – who is dating Kate’s brother-in-law Prince Harry – has also worn the Diane von Furstenberg, in a shorter navy blue version.

However, the Suits actress admitted she wasn’t a fan of the look, telling Glamour magazine she found the whole outfit “try hard”.

“I was going to this event and there was this DVF lace dress with a zipper up the back, and it was so fitted, and had tea length sleeves… I bought one in navy and black,” the Suits actress – who is rumoured to be announcing her engagement soon – explained.

“It was too tight, and too short, and my hair was too polished, and everything about it was trying too hard.”
