If there’s one thing we know about the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, is that she’s a stunner no matter what she wears. Whether it’s sweatpants or an evening gown, Markle can rock any outfit she dons—even if it’s one she wore before.
Yes, ladies and gentleman. It may be hard to believe, but even royalty sometimes repeats their outfits more than once. It’s true: Not all members of the royal family have one get-up for every day of the year—they actually re-wear things sometimes!
The Duchess of Camrbidge, Kate Middleton, and sister-in-law to Markle, is a perfect example. She’s actually well known for regularly repeating outfits or styles. And now Markle is following in her footsteps.
Markle recently accompanied her husband Prince Harry at the WellChild awards, which celebrates ill children as well as those who take care of them in the United Kingdom.
Markle looked lovely, as always. But the media can’t stop buzzing about how familiar her choice of dress was. She walked out in a fitted emerald green wool dress, designed by P.A.R.O.S.H. It was the same dress she wore when she announced her engagement to Prince Harry in November 2017!
As Town & Country magazine put it:
Meghan recycled a special dress for the event: today, the Duchess wore the same green design she chose to announce her engagement to Prince Harry back in November 2017.
Though while during the engagement, she wore it under a white coat, she wore a tan coat to the award ceremony, the Daily Mail reports. In fact, a number of media outlets couldn’t stop talking about the news—from Harpers Bazaar to Town and Country and every other outlet in between.
Page Six even reported on the other outfits Markle has recycled in the past, like that time she during her royal tour of Africa where she wore repeat outfits of a black jumpsuit and a blue shirt dress she last wore in Tonga.
Personally, we think outfits are meant to be worn multiple times, but that’s just us!
Don’t worry, Prince Harry also got some coverage for his heartfelt speech he gave during the awards. Watch him choke up in the video below!
What do you think of Markle repeating her engagement dress more than once? Would you have noticed if it weren’t for the media?
