Kate Middleton Reiss

The down-to-earth Duchess really is just like us — she loves to share and borrow clothes!

Kate Middleton looked vibrant in a blue Reiss dress, (priced at approximately $220), when she stepped out for the The Treehouse children’s hospice in Ipswich on Mar. 19 — but that wasn’t the first time we saw the frock! Kate’s mom, Carole Middleton, wore the dress to the Ascot in 2010 — and it turns out she borrowed the ensemble from her daughter for the special occasion! Although her mom was already photographed in it, that didn’t stop the Duchess from wearing the get-up.

The Duchess is known for her savvy style sense, often re-wearing clothing and shopping at affordable stores, so her most recent outfit choice doesn’t come as a surprise at all! In fact, sources say Kate often heads over to her mom’s closet if she’s getting ready for a special occasion — it’s so sweet that this mother-daughter duo shares!
