Despite (almost) being a princess and having more of a pass to broaden her wardrobe into “no re-wear” territory than anyone alive, Kate Middleton isn’t about to let a good sartorial staple go to waste.

The Duchess of Cambridge visited Bletchley Park on Tuesday morning in the same button-front polka-dot navy Alessandra Rich she wore in Prince Charles’s 70th birthday portrait.

This time around, she paired the long-sleeved dress with a set of pale blue pumps, a golden brooch, and some pearl drop earrings.

If you’re thinking the dress in question looks more than just Middleton-re-wear familiar, your sense of déjà vu isn’t off base. The midi gown has been worn by pretty much every female celebrity to ever grace a best-dressed list, including Kelly Ripa, Sarah Jessica Parker, Daisy Ridley, Abigail Spencer (at Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s wedding!), and Ivanka Trump.

It isn't quite a Sisterhood of the Traveling $1,400 Dress situation — but if anyone questions Middleton’s decision to re-wear, at least a few big names are sure to have her back.
