Kate Middleton recycled a gorgeous off-the-shoulder dress as she attended the first gala for one of her longstanding causes. 


The Duchess of Cambridge looked stunning on Wednesday night as she attended the Addiction Awareness Week gala held in London. 

Upon her arrival at the Spring restaurant of Somerset House, royal fans noticed that Middleton's dress was the same one she wore just two years before. 


The duchess' off-the-shoulder cream dress was designed by Barbara Casasola. She paired it with a clutch from Wilbur & Gussie and wore dazzling pumps believed to be by Jimmy Choo to complete the look. 

The 37-year-old styled her brown hair in loose curls that framed her face and wore a pair of earrings with a dark inset that matched her ring. Her makeup showed off rosy cheeks and she wore a red lip. 


The first time Middleton wore the dress was in 2016 when she visited the Natural History Museum for the Art Fund Museum of the Year Award event. A similar dress goes for $567 on

The Action on Addiction charity hosts Addiction Awareness Week which will run from June 10 to 16 this year. The aim is to increase awareness through discussions and encourage families and friends to help those afflicted.

Middleton has been a patron of the cause since 2012, assisting facilities that rehabilitate addicts through community and professional treatment. She gave a speech at the gala about how Action on Addiction inspired her.

Just one day prior, in stark contrast to Wednesday, Middleton wore khakis and rugged boots as she arrived in Keswick, Cumbria alongside Prince Harry. The pair greeted admirers within the small town, including two furry friends.

One English Springer Spaniel, who was named after Prince Harry, went right up to Prince William who petted him. Two other dogs, Max and Paddy, also received some hugs from the royal couple. 

Prince Harry the dog and Paddy are being trained with the help of Max to be therapy dogs. The four-legged friends were a great start to Middleton and Harry's day before they made their way to fell sheep in the countryside.

The Lake District area where they visited was named a UNESCO World Heritage site in 2017. It is the home of Windermere, England's largest lake, and Scafell Pike, the tallest mountain.
