Kate Middleton has supported various causes over time, and amongst them is her affinity for sustainable fashion. From re-wearing some of her signature outfits to championing sustainability projects, she is a true inspiration for the fashion world.


The Duchess of Cambridge is often seen donning bespoke dresses for public appearances and formal events. She is also a big fan of recycling her outfits, following in the footsteps of Her Royal Highness, Queen Elizabeth.

The 39-year-old Royal has effortlessly carried her sustainable fashion statements to date and continues to enthrall the people with her sartorial style. Her evolving fashion sense is a direct reflection of her preparations for becoming the future queen.


In late 2020, Prince William and Kate Middleton met with the acclaimed historian and English broadcaster Sir David Attenborough. The three of them enjoyed a screening of Attenborough's documentary film, David Attenborough: A Life on Our Planet in the gardens of Kensington Palace.

The Duchess chose a belted dress made from repurposed denim, called the 'Marley dress' from Gabriela Hearst's pre-fall 2020 collection for the occasion.

For her royal visit to Ireland, Middleton opted for skinny jeans, Russell and Bromley boots, and a fitted Reiss coat that she first wore back in 2007. Moreover, her Penelope Chilvers boots were also the highlight of the visit and have lasted her for nearly a decade and a half.

During the 2020 BAFTAs, the Duchess recycled her bespoke white and gold Alexander McQueen gown from 2012, fitting the event's sustainability focus for the evening and choosing a previously worn garment.

The Duke and Duchess have also voiced their concern for climate change and global warming, championing the cause on their royal tour to Pakistan, where they were both seen in traditional Pakistani clothes.

Furthermore, the Duchess also hosted a new sustainable fashion project during the London Fashion Week in 2018. The event was co-managed by Eco-Age, the Commonwealth Fashion Council, and the British Fashion Council.

It seems that Middleton is not yet done inspiring the world with her sustainable fashion choices, so how about stealing a page from her personal stylebook?
