Kate Middleton recycled an outfit that's been in her wardrobe for some time for her first royal engagement on Thursday.
Embodying British style in a beige tailored, herringbone coat, the princess-to-be revealed her thrifty side at the RNLI lifeboat naming ceremony in Anglesey.
She had previously been photographed wearing the coat by Wiltshire-based designer Katherine Hooker in 2006 at the Cheltenham Gold Cup equestrian event.
But fashion-forward Kate did make a small alteration.
The mid-calf length coat had been scissored by Katherine Hooker to above the knee to show off Kate's shapely legs.
It is known as the London Contrast coat, and costs between £500 and £700.
