Ever the people's princess, Duchess Kate Middleton chose to recycle one of her fashion favorites for a visit to The Fostering Network in the U.K. on Friday.

The mom-to-be met with foster children, caregivers and social workers in a brown, animal-print shirt dress from British retailer Hobbs — a dress she's worn on three separate occasions!

The embossed silk dress (complete with a handy sash belt that's perfect for tying above a baby bump) sold out almost immediately after her most recent appearance at its $95 sale price.


Previously, Middleton wore the dress under striking coats that garnered most of the attention. On Christmas, she wore the demure dress under a tweed, midi-length coat and added a matching hat.
