They’re back — and honestly, it’s about time! On Tuesday, Oct. 9, Prince William and Kate Middleton stepped out for their first joint appearance since welcoming their third child, son Prince Louis, in April, and it’s so good to see everyone’s favorite royal duo back in the spotlight.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge — who are apart of the Heads Together initiative with Prince Harry — attended The Global Ministerial Mental Health Summit to unite politics, academics, and health policy-makers and help countries work together to address mental health issues. During their visit, they also met with Columbian artist Dario Vargas, who created a stunning painting inspired by the summit. 

You may have recognized the 36-year-old’s dress for the outing as well — and that’s because she’s worn it before! Kate sported a recycled long-sleeved lilac Emilia Wickstead frock for the outing, the same one she donned during her family’s Germany visit last year. She accessorized the stunning look with a matching earrings and necklace set, matching heels, and an Aspinal of London Mayfair bag.

Before Kate returned from maternity leave, William, also 36, joked that his wife was jealous of his solo royal engagements. “I’m delighted to be visiting Namibia for the first time. I’m only sorry that my wife, Catherine, is not able to join me. She is immensely jealous,” he quipped at the British High Commissioner’s reception. “Particularly because I’m looking forward to a few good uninterrupted nights’ sleep this week away from my wonderful children.” No need to be envious anymore, Kate!
