The Duchess of Cambridge looks stunning in Jenny Packham gown she first wore six years ago

Thrifty Kate Middleton recycles glam evening gown

And Kate Middleton has done it again, by re-wearing this stunning designer gown, created by Jenny Packham.

The 36-year-old Duchess of Cambridge, who has just come back from maternity leave after giving birth to Prince Louis in April, attended the Tusk Conservation Awards in London with Prince William last night.

The stunning dress is perfectly tailored to Kates slim body, has a daring lace back and an almost mermaid-like glow when she walks.

Theres also no doubt that Kate would have reworn the dress to take the attention away from herself, so that the night is all about Prince William and his passion for the conservation of tusk and fight against illegal wildlife trade.

The Duchess has previously adopted this strategy for royal events where she doesnt want the limelight on her and what she wears.

At Meghan Markle and Prince Harrys wedding, the mum-of-three rewore an Alexander McQueen white coat she had previously worn at an official royal event.

Indeed, the night was all about conservation efforts of the charity, with Prince William taking to the stage to deliver a passionate speech.

Two years ago at this event, Sir David Attenborough warned that man is losing his own connection with nature, Prince William said in a speech at the event.

The IPCCs recent report was the loudest warning bell yet from the scientific community that we must act now.

The clock is ticking towards a tipping point when the impact of what we are doing will become dangerously irreversible.

Kate Middleton may have a wardrobe full of designer duds and a castle-sized budget, but the 36-year-old isn’t afraid to show off a thrifty streak.

On Thursday, the Duchess of Cambridge appeared at the Tusk Conservation Awards in London, clad in a teal gown by British designer, Jenny Packham.

The elegant frock, which features lace cap sleeves, a plunging neckline and an embellished belt at the waist, fitted the Duchess’s lithe figure to perfection.

For royal aficionados with a sharp eye, the dress may look a little familiar. The mother-of-three first wore the garment in 2012 at a concert held at Royal Albert Hall for the Olympic Games.

It’s not the first-time Middleton has ransacked her wardrobe for a public outing. From a lace Diane von Furstenberg gown, to a tried-and-true red suit there are several designer outfits the Duchess has worn time and time again.
