  • Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge (AKA Kate Middleton) wears a blue tweed set by New Zealand designer Rebecca Taylor for a video call with teachers from County Durham to mark Children's Mental Health Week

  • The duchess first wore the blazer for a visit to Evelina London Children's Hospital in February 2017

I'm not sure about you, but Kate Middleton's Zoom wardrobe has been markedly more impressive than my own, which mainly consists of leggings, loungewear and slippers on high rotation. By contrast, for her latest virtual engagements, the Duchess has repped some serious designer looks and has even dipped into the archives to rewear some of our all-time favourite outfits.

To refresh your memory, last month Kate whipped out her utterly chic red tartan Emilia Wickstead number once more to celebrate Burns Night. And, of course, who could forget her recent revivals of both her iconic Gucci pussy-bow blouse and pink M&S trouser suit?

Well, here to deliver another example of how to outfit repeat like a pro is Kate with her blue tweed blazer by New Zealand designer Rebecca Taylor, which she just recycled for a video call with teachers from a school in County Durham to mark Children's Mental Health Week.

In the call, the Duchess wears a preppy collared blazer as she asks the teachers a series of 'quick-fire questions' about how they've been taking care of their own mental health over the last few months.

Kensington Palace shared footage of the chat on Instagram with the caption, "What an inspiring group of teachers! Although it's Children's Mental Health Week, it's hugely important we ensure our teachers are supported as well. @_Place2Be have been champions of mental health in schools across the UK and continue to provide support to those facing challenges throughout lockdown."

So when did Kate previously wear the look, you ask? Well, cast your mind back to 2017, when the Duchess visited Evelina London Children's Hospital wearing the blazer with a matching skirt and black pumps:
