Duchess Kate repeats a Zara dress for a keen stop at a London university

The Duchess of Cambridge did an event today at University College London’s Centre for Longitudinal Studies. The event had something to do with the Keenwell Institute for Busy Work, Buttons and Early Years aka The Royal Foundation Centre for Early Childhood. Remember that? Kate did a big, splashy rollout for the “center” in July, because Kensington Palace wanted Kate to have some big, new, keen thing to announce and promote. The “center” is just a desk inside of Kensington Palace where someone makes Keen fancams, I’m pretty sure.

As for Kate’s look at this event… she wore a repeat. This is a Zara dress which originally retailed for about $110, but it was likely on sale for £16 when Kate purchased it. It’s houndstooth and it has puffy sleeves and a pussybow. It looks very much like something Diana would have worn in 1985. Kate previously wore this dress when she and William visited Bradford in January 2020. She paired the repeat with Hugo Boss heels and Mappin & Webb earrings which cost £3,750.

According to the Mail, Kate “met with leading early years researchers and learnt more about their new study, ‘The Children of the 2020s’ – a new nationally representative birth cohort study launching in England, which will track the holistic development of children from the age of nine months to five years.” I can only imagine that conversation, as Kate tried to pretend that her Five Big Questions was some kind of landmark initiative and not just a huge waste of time, effort, money and keenness.

PS… Credit where it’s due, I’m glad to see Kate wearing a mask.
