Ever since Kate Middleton walked down the aisle to marry her prince, we have envied and tried to copy her make up, clothes and jewellery.

Luckily for us, she is thrifty and is happy to wear the same dress twice.

The Duchess of Cambridge attended the Diamond Jubilee Garden Party at Buckingham Palace yesterday (May 29th) in a pink. Emilia Wickstead-designed dress.

Kate Middleton was last seen in the £1,200 gown at the Royal Sovereign’s lunch, held in honour of the Jubilee at Windsor Castle, two weeks ago.

The ensemble looked different both times as Kate decided to complement the dress with some jewellery on the second occasion of wearing it, proving that earrings can change how an outfit looks.

She teamed the gown with a stylish pink hat and pearl earrings as well as her sapphire engagement ring.

Kate joined the Prince of Wales, the Duchess of Cornwall and the Queen for tea and cakes with 8,000 guests on the Royal grounds ahead of this weekend’s celebrations.

Her husband Prince William was not in attendance as he is working as a search and rescue pilot for the RAF.

He revealed earlier this week, in an interview with Kate Couric for ABC, that the couple are looking forward to starting a family in the near future.
