If it ain't broke, don't fix it.
The royal family's most frugal fashionista made sure to get her money's worth out of her post-Christmas ensemble, choosing to wear her brown tweed skirt suit at a Sunday church service today.
After celebrating her 34th birthday on Saturday night, the Duchess of Cambridge looked fresh faced as she joined her husband Prince William and members of the royal family for a service at St. Mary Magdalene Church in Sandringham, Norfolk.
The mother-of-two opted for a nearly identical look today, only choosing to wear her hair tied up in in a chic chignon bun, to complement her combination by The Michael Kors Collection and Jane Taylor fascinator.
She was also joined by her parents Carole and Michael Middleton and siblings James and Pippa, fresh from their New Year jaunt to St Barts, for the occasion. She made the surprise appearance at a ceremony honouring the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War Gallipoli campaign, where Queen Elizabeth and the Duke of Edinburgh led the royal tributes.
In order to mark her birthday, Buckingham Palace tweeted a sweet throwback of Kate as a child, paired with a similar picture of her smiling today.
They announced that she and William will make an official visit to Bhutan, India, this spring. It's unclear whether they will be joined by their two children Prince George (two) and Princess Charlotte (seven months).
The couple brought their eldest son on their Australia tour in 2014 and speculation is rife they could make their international debut in similar fashion with Charlotte in India.
Meanwhile, the proud parents are still basking in their growing son's latest accomplishment - joining montessori.
The heir to the throne is attending Westacre Montessori nursery in Norfolk, similar to his father Prince William, who attended a montessori school at his mother Princess Diana's insistence. They are keen to ensure their children have as 'normal' an upbringing as possible.
The school says its approach to learning is based on a child’s ‘natural development’, rather than by rigid developmental standards. The toddler will attend nursery school for three hours each day.
