When you're a royal, it's a given that you can afford anything you want, including outfit. But Kate Middleton doesn't follow these rule. And her recent appearance is all the proof we need that even Prince William has hopped on board as well. 

The couples' first appearance together in months

On Tuesday, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge attended the Global Ministerial Mental Health Summit. The event is aimed at unifying the efforts of political figures and policy-makers from around the world in a bid to tackle mental health issues.

This was the couple's first appearance together in a while, as Kate Middleton recently returned from her maternity leave. And the pair looked like they had a fantastic time. They must have been really excited to return to the scene as a couple as several photos featured them laughing together. 

In fact, at one point, the Duke even gave his wife a compliment by referring to her as the "arty one" when William encouraged Kate to try to paint brush strokes on artist Dairo Vargas painting.

Apart from their high energy and fun spirit, fans also noticed something interesting about the couple. Both the Duke and Duchess wore the same outfits they had on a year ago.

Prince William and Kate Middleton took a tour of Germany in July 2017 where they visited Hamburg to celebrate the joint UK-German year of science. As you can see, Kate wore the lilac dress while her husband looked dashing in a suit and a tie that looked very much like the one he had on on Wednesday.

Kate isn't new to re-wearing outfits

The Duchess has been spotted many times in outfits she had worn before. Of all of them, this gorgeous Alexander McQueen stood out. It must be a favorite because Kate has worn it four times to four different events. 

First, she had it on in 2015 for Princess Charlotte's Christening.
