  • Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge (AKA Kate Middleton) rewears a yellow dress by Roksanda Ilincic for Zoom call supporting Australia's 'Thank a First Responder Day'

Kate Middleton is rapidly becoming our favourite Zoom style icon, putting our tracksuit bottoms and slouchy t-shirts to shame.

Since lockdown commenced in March for UK residents, the royals have swapped their public appearance for virtual meetings. Seeing their cute faces smushed onto webcam together is definitely a highlight, but our favourite part of these calls are Kate's outfit choices, which continue to send important messages.

First, royal fans noticed that the Duchess' wardrobe became more colourful than before showing the family's support for the NHS - symbolised nationwide by a rainbow.

Now, Kate is sending another message with her latest outfit, a look that even warranted a comment from Prince William.

The Duke and Duchess' latest engagement via video link was to mark Australia's 'Thank a First Responder Day' recognising the country's key workers. For the occasion, Kate opted for a vibrant yellow dress, but it's not just any dress.

If you think the outfit looks familiar, that's because it is. Kate first wore the dress for the couple's royal tour of Australia and New Zealand, back in 2014.

Here's the Duchess sporting the look on the steps of the Sydney Opera House six years earlier:

At the time, Kate revealed to the crowd that William had playfully teased her about the dress, "William said I look like a banana!" Hello Magazine reported. Lol.

Banana-hued or not, we reckon Kate looks a million bucks. Plus, recycling the Sydney dress for an Australian event is clearly a nod to show her support for the land down under's key workers - cute huh?

But that's not the only time Kate's reworked the dress, wearing the same number at Wimbledon in 2016:

Despite William's comments it looks like this is still one of the Duchess' favourite dresses and, tbh, same.
