Duchess Kate dazzles in bright red outfit for Commonwealth Day

By Zach Harper

The Duchess of Cambridge looked regal in red on March 11 when she stepped out at the Commonwealth Day Services with the Royal Family. Kate sported a gorgeous Catherine Walker coat dress... and it's not the first time we've seen her wear it!

The double-breasted military style number features oversized gold buttons down the front, and Kate previously wore it on a royal tour of New Zealand in 2014. This time, the duchess brought it out for the 70th anniversary of the Commonwealth at Westminster Abbey. She paired it with a matching red fascinator, grey clutch and grey suede pumps.

Kate was accompanied by hubby Prince William, who also donned a bit of red, matching his tie to his wife's outfit. William and Kate joined the Queen, who led the arrivals, along with Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla and Duchess Meghan and Prince Harry, who attended a special event at Canada House in London earlier in the day.

Of course, this is far from the first time Kate has recycled an outfit. She is well known for making her old favourites look new again by donning new accessories with them, and has a long and extensive history of doing so. Every time, she looks just as resplendent as she did before.

This is the fourth time the Duchess of Cambridge has attended Commonwealth Day Services. Kate's look in 2018 was much different than the one she chose this year. Twelve months ago, she opted for a darker outfit while nearly eight months pregnant with Prince Louis. She wore a navy blue coat and dress by Beulah London, with matching heels and a hat by Lock and Co.
