Kate Middleton just recycled a stunning Oscar de la Renta look

There's no doubt that Kate Middleton has stunning style, with nearly everything she wears selling out in stores shortly after they debut in the royal mum's wardrobe.

Her latest outing saw Kate touring the costume department of the Royal Opera House in London this morning, looking beautiful in a magenta skirt suit by Oscar de la Renta.

Kate originally sported the brightly-coloured outfit back in February 2017, and matched the suit with new Rupert Sanderson black pump heels with a gold buckle.

The Duchess swapped her regular nude stockings for glamorous black opaque tights, and carried a black leather handbag created by Aspinal of London.

The royal and mum-of-three had the opportunity to meet three principal dancers from the Royal Ballet: Laura Morera and Vadim Muntagirov and Lauren Cuthbertson, which will definitely make little Princess Charlotte jealous.

Charlotte has been taking ballet lessons in London, after her mother brought her to see The Nutcracker ballet at the Royal Opera House in December

Kate also got the chance to watch the dazzling dancers rehearsing the ballet The Two Pigeons this morning, which was presumably hugely impressive.

According to the Royal Opera House; "The Duchess has a strong interest in textiles – her great-great-grandfather was a mill owner who ran the family’s successful textile manufacturing business."

"Her Royal Highness met the team that make and maintain 10,000 each year for The Royal Opera and The Royal Ballet- up to 600 per production." the Opera House added.

Kate’s great-great-grandfather, Francis Martineau Lupton, ran the family’s successful textile manufacturing business, William Lupton & Company, alongside his three brothers.

At Covent Garden, Kate also visited the pattern room to witness how the costumes are produced with a range of designers who source fabrics and samples.

She was also taken to the dye shop to learn about the techniques of hand-painting and digital printing. The department has a massively historic costume collection of over 5,000 items, some which date back to 1861.

All-in-all, a busy but fascinating day for the Duchess. We're sure she'll be telling Princess Charlotte every detail.
