Royals fans celevrate Kate Middleton wearing their "favourite" teal dress again.

We have known for a while now that Kate Middleton repeats many of her outfits with elegance and sophistication, but fans are extra excited that this royal decided to bring back this teal Jenny Packham gown with lace detail.

The Duchess of Cambridge brought back this beloved dress at the Tusk Conservation Awards, in London. Fans have praised Kate for wearing their “favourite” outfit of hers she was seen in six years ago.

Kate has repeated many other outfits, sometimes not only once but twice – and it ain’t no thing.

Insider reported that the Duchess re-wore the hot red Luisa Spagnoli suit in 2011, 2014 and 2017, and re-wore another Jenny Packham beaded gown in 2011 and 2016.

Many celebrities have been seen repeating many of their outfits and have been unapologetic about it. Tracee Ellis Ross was quoted saying: “If a princess like Kate Middleton can re-wear her clothes, I think we all can!”

Former U.S. first lady Michelle Obama did it, comedian and actress Tiffany Haddish did it, South African celebs have proudly done the same as well.

Actress Enhle Mbali Maphumulo, with the hashtag #woreitagain, posted herself wearing her wedding dress again at the DStv Mzansi Viewers' Choice Awards. While some social media users gave her flack for it, she showed no remorse and flaunted her white lace dress.

Media personality Boity Thulo also made a post about herself repeating a floral blue dress three years later after wearing it for the first time in 2014.

It seems the tables have genuinely turned, investment outfits that look great will continue to be resurrected. It helps because it's great reliving iconic fashion moments, I’m sure Kate’s fans would agree.
