Kate Middleton brought her sartorial style in a recycled dress to Harrow College in London on Saturday. The 33-year-old British royal and her husband Prince William visited the college as part of their official engagement on World Mental Health Day, hosted by the mental health charity Mind. The couple was there to promote awareness about the issue that affects millions of people worldwide.

Middleton opted for a knitted monochrome dress by American fashion designer Tory Burch, E Online reported. The Paulina latticework-patterned fringe A-line dress is from the label’s Resort 2014 collection. The black and white dress featured short sleeves, high neck and open-knit detailing.

The dress was cinched at the waist which highlighted Middleton’s tiny waistline. She channelled a demure look in the dress which ran right up to her knees. The mother of two paired the outfit with her trusted pair of black court shoes and a matching clutch bag, Vogue reported.

She accessorised with small earrings, her new bangs framing her face. Middleton previously wore the dress during an official visit to Australia and New Zealand in 2014. She then wore the dress to attend Government House in Wellington to meet and greet first-time parents, Hello reported.

The Duchess of Cambridge is known to be thrifty and has also recycled many outfits on several occasions. William also kept it simple in khaki trousers paired with a pale blue shirt. Brown suede boots and a silver watch completed his look.

The couple met young participants with personal experience of mental health problems, who now volunteer with Mind or the anti-stigma and anti-discrimination campaign Time to Change. They also joined students at a Mindkit workshop about emotional health and resilience.

“The Duke and Duchess are committed to raising awareness about the mental health problems faced by young people and we are grateful that they have chosen to champion Mind’s work. We hope it will inspire a new generation of young people to not be afraid or ashamed to talk about mental health problems,” said CEO of Mind Paul Farmer.

For the royal couple, raising awareness about mental health is a cause that is close to their hearts. This visit comes after Middleton’s solo official engagement to the Anna Freud Centre that she took up; post her maternity leave in September, Hello reported.
