Showing off her thrifty side once again, the Duchess of Cambridge wowed crowds at a charity event in London in a stunning ball-gown she first wore six years ago.
Catherine looked stunning as she joined her husband Prince William, both 36, at the Tusk Conservation Awards at Banqueting House, London on Thursday night.
The duchess wore an aqua-coloured lace gown by British designer Jenny Packham for the occasion — which has proven to be a staple of her wardrobe. She was first seen in the designer gown for a gala event at the Royal Albert Hall to mark the countdown to the London Olympic Games back in 2012.
Catherine teamed the gown with a custom-made teal clutch, a pair of gold heels from Jimmy Choo and accessorised with diamond chandelier earrings belonging to Queen Elizabeth.
Meanwhile, Prince William, who has been the royal patron of Tusk since 2005, put on a dashing display in a tux and placed a remembrance poppy on his lapel ahead of Armistice Day.
Tusk works to protect African wildlife and fights the illegal trade of animals including elephants, and Prince William earlier this year visited Tusk projects in Namibia and Tanzania.
Ahead of Armistice Day, Catherine made a surprise to London’s Imperial War Museum last week to pay her respects to those who had fallen during the war, but also to her family.
The mother-of-three wore a royal blue, long-sleeved dress by British designer Jenny Peckham with nude, suede heels for the occasion. Her elegant outfit was paired with a simple nude Mulberry clutch, silver watch, and her signature blow-dried wave.
During her visit, the duchess viewed letters relating to her great-grandmother’s three brothers who all died during WWI. Her family’s letters, which form part of the museum’s documents archive, have provided both an insightful yet poignant account about what her relatives would have experienced during their time on the front line.
