Kate Middleton never failed to make headlines whether she's wearing a designer clothes or a generic black hoodie. The Duchess of Cambridge swapped her usual high-end fashion for a comfortable sweatshirt when she visited the 23rd Poplar Beaver Scout Colony in east London but went back to wearing cherry-red gown for Queen's Christmas luncheon.

Kate made headlines once again after her controversial hoodie when she wore the exact same dress from last year's event, Diamond Jubilee celebrations. Looking stunning as she arrived at the event, the 32-year-old royal completed her Alexander McQueen gown with a dazzling pair of chandelier earing and a diamond necklace and a half updo, last year she wore her hair down and did not wear any accessories.

"Maybe last year, at the luncheon, the Queen whispered in Kate's ear, "This dress is quite becoming on you, dear," and that stuck with her, and Kate figured this morning, "You know, why not just give the mother-in-law what she likes?" according to Vanity Fair. "This year, Kate paired the dress with some dramatic chandelier earrings and a diamond necklace, along with a half-up hairstyle."

Together with Prince William, the Duchess attended the Queen's Buckingham Palace Christmas lunch on Wednesday, Dec. 17, as they joined the members of the royal family including Prince Charlie, Princess Beatrice and Prince Harry. On the other hand, Prince William was photographed wearing a navy suit and paired it with a classic white shirt and tie.

The pre-Christmas lunch is the only time of the year where the royal's extended family gathered together, including the ones are not invited to spend Christmas with the Queen at Sandringham. Other attendees include Lady Helen Taylor with husband Timothy and daughter Estella Taylor, Lady Gabriella Windsor and Peter Philips.
