Perfection in pink! Thrifty Kate recycles two-year-old £695 Beulah pink midi dress as she heads to Young V&A event in London

The Princess of Wales once again cemented her status as an eco-conscious royal as she rewore a two-year old dress to head to the Young V&A event in London.

Kate Middleton, 41, looked stunning in a £695 crepe midi dress in blush pink by London-based designer Beulah as she opened the museum today.

The royal first wore the dress to the Wimbledon finals in 2021, at the time pairing them with £30 Aldo shoes.

Today, she opted for white stilettos and Mappin & Webb earrings, looking a vision of summer chic.

Showing off voluminous hair, the brunette beauty wore her locks in relaxed curls while opting for a pretty make-up look.

The mother-of-three highlighted her natural beauty with lightly pencilled in eyebrows, black eyeliner and a creamy touch of foundation.

Keeping the look simple and sophisticated, Kate opted to forego bracelets and necklaces letting the statement dress speak for itself.

The Princess appears to have influenced dozens of other royals and celebrities after first wearing the dress, with Princes Beatrice, Sophie Windsor and Princess Mary of Denmark all spotted in the identical number.

Holly Willoughby, Lucy Mecklenburgh and Laura-Ann Barr also own the dress. 

Beulah London, co-founded by Lady Natasha Rufus Isaacs and Lavinia Brennan in 2010, has become a go-to label for Kate, who has stepped out in the designs on a number of occasions.

The royal was reopening the Young V&A museum in London.

She has made children’s early development a key focus of her work in recent years and will learn about how the renovated museum will inspire young visitors’ creativity.

The Young V&A – which was formerly known as the V&A Museum of Childhood in east London and will officially reopen to the public on Saturday following a three-year £13m renovation.

As part of the extensive redesign, museum staff worked closely with local schoolchildren, parents and teachers to reimagine display areas and contributing ideas for galleries.

The institute – which is dedicated to children aged between 0-14 and will be free to access – houses three new galleries called Play, Imagine and Design.

The distinct areas have nearly 2,000 items on display from the V&A’s collections which aim to inspire children’s creativity.
