Kate Middleton wore British designers for her official visit to Action on Addiction charity in Wiltshire Thursday. She opted to recycle her blue Emilia Wickstead dress for the visit. And to keep herself warm in the chilly weather, she wrapped up in a houndstooth coat from Reiss.
The 33-year-old, a royal patron of the group, recycled her favorite designer Emilia Wickstead. The blue dress featured long sleeves, fitted top with pleated skirt that ended above her knees. She protected herself from the cold in a stylish houndstooth wrap coat from Reiss.
It is the high street British label’s Rubik coat. The slim fit coat featured long sleeves, high neck and had a striking houndstooth design in black and white. The Duchess of Cambridge accessorized with a delicate necklace and pendant, small drop earrings and her engagement ring.
She paired her outfit with black pumps and carried a matching black clutch. The mother-of-two showed off her new shorter hairstyle that she debuted at the ICAP Charity Day Wednesday. Her day make-up consisted of smoky eyes and a hint of blush.
Kate had worn the Emilia Wickstead dress previously during her royal tour of New Zealand in April 2014. The duchess is known to recycle her outfits and has worn the same Emilia Wickstead dress in pastel pink, twice during May 2012.
The 33-year-old royal is a huge fan of Reiss and wore an electric blue Reiss coat to the opening ceremony of the Rugby World Cup in September.
As patron of Action on Addiction, Kate visited the charity’s Centre for Addiction Treatment Studies in Warminster, Wiltshire. She has been focusing her autumn engagements on foster care and mental health in young people. During her visit Thursday, she highlighted another issue close to her heart -- supporting those who struggle with addiction.

The British royal saw how the facility provides training, education and professional development for those working with addicts, including social workers, nurses and prison officers. She spoke to course tutors and examiners and learnt about their training. Kate later joined the graduation ceremony of students from the Foundation and Honors degree programmes accredited by the University of Bath.
