Leave it to the Duchess of Cambridge to inspire and re-wear one of the latest face mask trends!

The former Kate Middleton was recently spotted wearing a vibrant floral mask by Amaia London during an appearance at the London Bridge Jobcentre on Tuesday. The duchess paired the mask with a red floral-print silk dress, tan pumps and a red clutch.

It's not the first time the duchess has worn the design — it's actually the third!

She also chose the design for a visit to a local charitable organization called Baby Basics in August. On the following day, the stylish royal sported the same mask once again as she visited residents at the Shire Hall Care Home in Wales.

The duchess has been a trendsetter for many years, so it's not surprising that she incorporated one of the most popular face mask styles into her look. According to ShopStyle, searches for "floral face masks" increased by 500% on the site over the past four months. Between June and July, Etsy also saw a 74% increase in searches for the colorful print.

Naturally, searches for floral face masks skyrocketed even more after Kate was spotted wearing one two days in a row. Data and trends marketing company SEMrush told Shop TODAY that Google searches for "floral face masks" have spiked 248% globally and spiked 66% in the United States since August 8. Between August 5 and 8, the spikes were 316.67% in the U.S. and 194.12% globally.
