Kate Middleton surprises in recycled Christmas outfit for new royal appearance

We love her latest look!

The Duchess of Cambridge stepped out with Prince William on their latest visit during the royal train tour of the UK on Tuesday, and she looked beautiful once again!

Wearing a coordinating red and black outfit, Kate recycled her pleated tartan Emilia Wickstead skirt, which she wore in 2019 to host a Christmas party at Kensington Place with Prince William. To finish off her look, the royal added a black roll-neck jumper, heeled Ralph Lauren boots and her Alexander McQueen bold red coat.
