Kate Middleton dazzles in recycled Alexander McQueen coat

Kate Middleton has proven once again that you can never wear out a good look.
The Duchess of Cambridge attended the 75th anniversary of the RAF Air cadets in London today and looked elegant as always in a blue belted dress coat by Alexander McQueen.
She first wore the coat in 2014 in New Zealand and added a new twist to the look, wearing her hair in her trademark bouncy blow dry, rather than a sleek ponytail the first time around. She completed the ensemble with navy pumps from LK Bennett, a matching fascinator and an Air Cadets Dacre brooch, which is given to the top serving female cadet.
Kate is famous for recycling her outfits, as recently as Christmas, she wore the same tweed suit by the Michael Kors Collection to two services.
Her latest fashionable turn comes after she was criticised for her personal by supermodel agency boss Carol White, who described her style as "boring." "It’s a bit old and safe," she said. "But I suppose she is pitching it right to fit her role as a senior Royal."
Meanwhile, the 34-year-old royal and husband of five years Prince William are being praised once again for their down-to-earth parenting style. Since enrolling their two-year-old son Prince George in a local montessori, they are said to be keen for him to socialise with his classmates - including playdates at their estate in Norfolk, Amner Hall.
"Kate and William will be getting involved in Prince George's nursery life," a source told Bella magazine.
"They won't ever want him to feel isolated or different from the other children, so that means plenty of play dates with his classmates.
"Kate and William are very sociable and want to get involved in all aspects of his nursery life, which includes meeting his new friends. There would be security checks on parents coming into their home and personal 'family areas' of the estate would be out of bounds, but there are plenty of communal areas where George's friends can visit."
