The royal family's savviest style star has struck again.

Kate Middleton has returned to her recycling fashion roots, opting to wear one of her favourite maternity looks - an animal print dress by Hobbs.

The Duchess of Cambridge made one of her final appearances before giving birth to her second child next month and turned heads with her latest twist on an old classic.

The dalmatian print coat dress caught our eyes in 2013, when she pregnant with Prince George, and she dusted it from her wardrobe for an appearance this morning at Margate's Turner Contemporary art gallery in Kent.

In 2013, the 33-year-old royal wore a black Jane Taylor fascinator with her hair in her trademark bouncy blow dry, however this morning, she went for a more casual look with a tight ponytail and showing off her Anoushka earrings.

Kate, who is eight months pregnant, is a patron of the National Portrait Gallery and attended the exhibit as part of her duties with The Art Fund.

She is wrapping her final royal duties before taking a break from the spotlight to prepare for the birth of the second royal baby next month.
