The Duchess of Cambridge was seen in the same dress last November, when she and her husband, Prince William, posed in a family portrait with their three kids, as well as Prince Harry, Meghan, Prince Charles and Camilla to mark Prince Charles’s 70th birthday.

Kate, 37, is well-known for re-wearing and re-fashioning clothes for her many public appearances. When she stepped out for a gala in March, for example, Kate rewore a black floral Alexander McQueen gown to which she added capped sleeves, creating a new look.

Tuesday’s event at Bletchey Park was a chance for Kate to see a special exhibition marking the 75th anniversary of the D-Day landings. It was also personal for Kate, whose grandmother and great aunt both worked at Bletchey Park, the home of British codebreaking during World War II, according to Kensington Palace.

Kate is a new aunt to Prince Harry and Meghan’s son, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor. She and Prince William are expected to meet Archie for the first time early this week, while Prince Charles is expected to meet his fourth grandchild later in the week, according to ABC News’ royal contributor Omid Scobie.
