When you think of recycled royal outfits, Kate Middleton definitely comes to mind first. But it seems the Duchess of Cambridge’s new sister-in-law, Meghan Markle, is now taking a page out of Kate’s style book because she was just photographed rewearing a dress from her very first public outing with Prince Harry during her royal tour.

When Meghan, 37, stepped out for an event at the Auckland War Memorial Museum in Auckland, New Zealand on Tuesday, Oct. 30, the Duchess of Sussex was wearing a gorgeous navy blue frock designed by Antonio Berardi. And eagle-eyed royal fans quickly realized it was the same dress she previously wore while watching her now-husband, Harry, 34, at the Audi Polo Challenge in Ascot, England back in May 2017.

One year before the royal couple tied the knot in May 2018, Meghan sported the chic sleeveless dress featuring an asymmetrical hem under a white blazer and accessorized the ensemble with pumps and a pair of sunglasses. Today, she switched up the look by pairing the frock with nude pumps, simple gold jewelry, and a matching navy blue clutch. The best part? Meg’s outfit perfectly coordinated with Harry’s dapper navy suit during their special museum outing.

This actually isn’t the first time Meghan has recycled an outfit since officially becoming a member of the British monarchy. This past April, the Duchess attended an Invictus Games reception in London and wore a pretty, green patterned dress under a black blazer during the event. It didn’t take royal fans long to notice that Meghan had previously worn the same blazer just a few months earlier for her first official evening engagement with Harry at the Endeavour Fund Awards in early February. Seems like Kate isn’t the only royal who will be recycling lots of clothes from now on!
