The new royal mother, who welcomed her son August Brooksbank in February this year, looked radiant in a recycled red jacket at the Horan & Rose Gala at The Grove in Watford. The 31-year-old followed in the fashion footsteps of the Duchess of Cambridge, who loves to re-wear clothes and reinvent her wardrobe with older pieces.

Eugenie's younger sister Princess Beatrice has also donned the sleek, duster-style number before. The vibrant tomato red number looks to be the same jacket that Eugenie rocked back in December at a film premiere too – these royal sisters sure are thrifty!

The royal sisters share an incredibly close bond, and have even talked in the past about sharing their wardrobes. The royal family are notoriously thrifty with their clothes, so sharing each other's style fits in with their ethos perfectly.

Both sisters clearly have the same ideas when it came to styling the statement piece too. Eugenie and Beatrice both decided to rock the coat in the same way, teaming the item with classic black dresses to give their ensembles a sophisticated finish.

When the most influential royals take the lead by recycling clothes, repeating outfits, shopping from small ethical brands, and even sharing their wedding dresses – we can't help but think this is a practice we should all get on board with.
