Kate Middleton Pops in a Recycled Teal Dress Under a Houndstooth Coat

Pretty, pretty princess. Making her third appearance in a week, Kate Middleton rocked a houndstooth coat teamed with a recycled dress at Action on Addiction’s Centre for Addiction Treatment Studies in Wiltshire, England, on Thursday, Dec. 10.

Modeling her new short haircut, the Duchess of Cambridge, 33, popped in the teal Emilia Wickstead frock, which she first wore while touring New Zealand in April 2014. She accessorized the look with a small clutch, black Jimmy Choo pumps, and sapphire and diamond earrings that perfectly matched her engagement ring from husband Prince William.

When outside, the mom of two kids — Prince George, 2, and Princess Charlotte, 7 months — also added the high-collared, black and white coat, which comes from one of her favorite high street stores, Reiss.

Middleton, who’s been married to Prince William since 2011, was on hand at the centre to meet with addicts and those who treat them. The duchess, who is a patron of the charity, also attended a graduation ceremony for some of those being treated.

“There’s obviously some overlap. Some addictions result as a response to mental health problems and sometimes, mental health problems arise from addiction,” Nick Barton, Action on Addiction’s outgoing chief executive, tells Us Weekly.

And when it comes to helping those in need, Barton has nothing but high praise for the duchess. “What’s always struck me is she’s very keen to learn. You can tell from the quality of her questions,” he shares. “She’s hearing from students about why they chose the course, what good it’s been for them, and what it’s going to do for them. She’s genuinely interested, which is great.”
