Kate stuns in recycled outfit as she takes the train to latest royal engagement

The thrifty duchess strikes again!

Her husband Prince William recently revealed that she likes nothing more than to watch the latest episode of Strictly Come Dancing on a Saturday night.

Now the Duchess of Cambridge has proved that she really is just like the rest of us as she recycled her outfit and arrived at a royal engagement by train.

Kate, in her role as Royal Patron of East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices, was in Norfolk – close to their Anmer Hall home – to officially open The Nook children’s hospice.

She looked striking in a £2,736 magenta Oscar De La Renta peplum skirt suit that we’ve seen the thrifty royal wear twice previously.

Kate stepped out in the outfit at the Royal Opera House back in January of this year. She also wore it to a mental health conference in 2017.

Further cementing her down-to-earth nature, the mother of three arrived at the engagement by train.

It was amazing. I shook her hand!

Once at The Nook, Kate met some of the families the hospice helps.

She accepted a bouquet of flowers from the family of three-year-old Stanley Harrold, who suffers from a rare chromosomal disorder.

Flag-waving school children who had raised money for the hospice greeted Kate as she arrived at the centre.

One told Hello!: “Kate said what a great place The Nook is and how wonderful it was for us to help.”

The caring duchess showed off her motherly side at the event too, as she asked a child: “Are you cold?” and rubbed his arm after seeing him shiver.

“It was amazing. I shook her hand!” he exclaimed.

At least Kate managed to stay upright at the event.

She had onlookers worried – and husband Prince William in fits of giggles – as she tripped at an event earlier in the week.
