Duke and Duchess of Cambridge attend Mental Health Summit



Kate Middleton stepped out on Wednesday night in London for the opening of the Victoria & Albert Museum's Photography Centre.

The Duchess, who returned from maternity leave last week, wore a lilac Emilia Wickstead fit and flare dress with her Gianvito Rossi 105 pumps in praline and a £595 Aspinal crocodile embossed cross body bag.

She and the Duke attended the Global Ministerial Mental Health Summit at London's County Hall on Tuesday.

The royal had a tour of the centre's inaugural exhibition, "Collecting Photography: From Daguerreotype To Digital" which is an exploration of photography from the 19th century to the present day, drawing from the V&A's collection of a huge 800,000 photographs.

However, fans were quick to notice that Middleton, being the queen of recycling, had worn the dress somewhere before: during her family's visit to Germany back in July 2017.

William and Kate were greeted by Health Secretary Matt Hancock.


The Duke and Duchess viewed the work of contemporary fine artist Dario Vargas, who had painted an original piece for the event.

She has expressed her love for photography and has taken portraits of her children Prince George and Princess Charlotte in the past.

Eagle-eyed fans of Kate's style will recognise the frock from her and Prince William's royal tour of Germany and Poland past year.

It's the royal couple's first joint public duty since Kate gave birth to Prince Louis on 23 April.

The next appearance for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex is expected to be at the wedding of William and Harry's cousin, Princess Eugenie, when she marries Jack Brooksbank on October 12.
