Kate Middleton often shows us that although she's a royal now, she's still a normal wife and mom. She repeats outfits just like we do! Such is the case for this elegant white coat dress Kate Middleton sported on Sunday, July 30th in Belgium. Middleton wore the dress for the centenary of the Battle of Passchendaele. As Vanity Fair pointed out, the stunning Alexander McQueen number she wore happens to be the very one she wore for Princess Charlotte's christening in 2015.

The King and Queen of Belgium, Philippe and Mathilde, accompanied the British royal couple on Sunday for the 100-year-anniversary event, along with the British prime minister, Theresa May. The following day, the group gathered at Bedford House Cemetery, a burial site for more than 5,000 World War I soldiers, to honor the fallen servicemen. Yet again, Middleton opted for another long-sleeved white coat dress, this time she chose one adorned with gray flowers along the bottom half and sleeve hems. Clearly we're seeing a trend for Middleton's favorite silhouette here!

Since summer in the South is certainly too hot for us to ever dream of donning a long-sleeve dress, we're currently swooning for this sleeveless double-breasted blazer dress from Nordstrom's. Currently on sale for 40% off for $59.99, we love its polished yet relaxed feel. It's pretty much perfect for a date night, or, you know, pretending we're in the royal family. We're pretty sure the Duchess of Cambridge would approve of the crisp look, too.
