Kate Middleton's Fans Defend Her for Recycling Blue Coat More Than Once

Kate Middleton used her pale blue Alexander McQueen coat for the fourth time, and while some fashion-shamed the duchess, others defended her.

A beautiful piece of clothing from Alexander McQueen would be treasured by anyone who makes a purchase, and the Duchess of Cambridge is no exception.

Kate Middleton recently recycled her pale blue Alexander McQueen coat for the fourth time, which the public noticed.

As her choice of clothing made headlines, some fans took it as a form of fashion-shaming, which made several fans of the duchess run to her defense on Twitter.

MIDDLETON’S FANS TO THE RESCUE

After Page Six released an article about Middleton’s fourth time wearing the dress to an engagement, fans felt the need to voice out their sentiments, including one who suggested she set the outfit on fire.

Meanwhile, others pointed out that sustainable fashion is the way to go, especially at the rate of our deteriorating planet. One comment supported Middleton and read:

“She only has 3,231 more wears to catch up to how many times I’ve worn this grey hoodie I got for $14.99 at Ross. Keep going, Kate! I believe in you.”

Middleton, who was with her husband Prince William, met the Gallery’s Youth Forum members and took time to appreciate the artwork in the gallery.

Others took into consideration the price of the gown and pointed out that Middleton was simply getting her “money’s worth” by wearing it repeatedly. 

OCCASIONS THAT SAW THE CONTROVERSIAL COAT

The piece of clothing last made an appearance during the Cammell Laird shipyard in Birkenhead. Middleton paired the coat with navy heels and a clutch bag.

Prior to the recent event, the dress also made it to the naming ceremony for RRS Sir David Attenborough, which the public chose to call Boaty McBoatface.

In 2014, the coat made its debut as Middleton visited New Zealand, and again at the 70th anniversary of the D-Day landings.

RECYCLING MORE OUTFITS

The pale blue coat was not the only piece of clothing Middleton recycled in the past. During the National Portrait Gallery last March, the duchess altered a gown she’s previously worn and wore it again.

The dress was a black floral Alexander McQueen gown, which first debuted in the BAFTAs 2017. The mom-of-three changed the off-shoulder sleeves into cap sleeves to give it a new look.

The gala aimed to raise funds to support Inspiring People: Transforming our National Portrait Gallery through renewing the building and having programs nationwide.
