She is famous for her love of recycling clothes and it seemed that Kate loved her blue, purple and white Whistles dress so much that she wore it to both the Diamond Jubilee concert in June and the Olympic Closing Ceremony last night.
Kate wore the 150 silk Bella dress as she took her seat next to her brother-in-law Prince Harry at the musical spectacular.
As an avid fan of the high street, Kate has worn Whistles on a number of occasions, but this particular dress is a last season piece and is now sold out.

Most notably she donned a navy blue Whistles dress for one of her
official engagement photographs – and has become something of an
ambassador for the label.
Her love of the line has even caused the website to crash with shoppers desperate to emulate her style in desperate pursuit of the items.
Since her engagement she also opted
to wear several of her outfits on more than one occasion, including a
49 Zara dress first seen the day after the Royal Wedding, and a brocade
dress coat which made its debut in 2006.
The Whistles dress is from last season and it is now sold out but that doesn't stop the Duchess from recycling the item
Kate also recycled a number of staple wardrobe items over the course of the Olympics, namely a navy or white Team GB polo with a dark pair of jeans.
The Duchess and Harry seemed to be having a great time as they took to their feet and danced the night away to the likes of the Spice Girls and George Michael.
Kate teamed the dress with Kiki McDonough Blue Topaz and Diamond Earrings.
It was the Prince's most important solo Royal engagement yet, the third in line to the
