Kate Middleton Wore Some Familiar Outfits in New Zealand This Weekend

Middleton wore her first repeat outfit of the trip Monday, but she had a good reason for it.

The Duke and Duchess Of Cambridge had a very eventful weekend as they continued on their tour of New Zealand. Meaning, of course, we got to see five more of the outfits the Duchess of Cambridge chose to pack for her trip.

For a very busy Saturday, which included visits to a children’s hospice, a war memorial and the National Cycling Centre of Excellence, the Duchess needed something versatile, so she chose a lovely green Erdem coat (above, far left).

On Sunday, she kicked the day off with an Emilia Wickstead dress and bespoke hat by Jane Taylor for a Palm Sunday service (above, second from left). Wickstead was a thoughtful choice — the designer, while based in London, hails from New Zealand. It was also a safe choice: the Duchess wore the same dress in pink twice in 2012.

Later, she ditched the heels to take in a kids’ rugby tournament, choosing sneakers by Mint Velvet, a Jonathan Saunders waffle knit sweater (according to What Kate Wore) and skinny jeans (above, third from left).

Later, for a wine tasting (where she dispelled any pregnancy rumors by DRINKING THE WINE!!!), the Duchess dressed up her jeans a bit with a Zara blazer (which she wore last week) and Stuart Weitzman wedges (above, far right).

And Monday has already proven quite eventful. The Duke and Duchess attended a memorial in Christchurch to remember victims of a devastating 2011 earthquake. Spirits were up, though, when the Duke and Duchess took part in a quick game of cricket (the Cricket World Cup is to take place in Christchurch in 2015). The game made for some amazing photos of the Duchess in a red Luisa Spagnoli skirt suit, which, while impractical, was also very thought-out: As the Daily Mail pointed out, red and black are the official colors of Canterbury (where Christchurch is located) and she wore a shorter version of the same suit in 2011 three days after the earthquake took place.
