Kate Middleton “sends an important message” by postponing certain clothes
There are many “style lessons we can learn from Kate Middleton”, celebrity stylist and fashion coach Miranda Holder claims. Although the Duchess generally follows royal family fashion protocols, she makes an important style choice that many others in the spotlight shy away from.
Miranda, a fashion coach known for her viral TikTok fashion videos posted under the username @themirandaholder “Your Feel Good Fashion Coach,” said, “Despite her position in the public eye, Kate wears many of her outfits on multiple occasions. It sends an important message to the rest of us to promote sustainability in fashion, which that fashion needs.”
According to Miranda, Kate urges the public, “Don’t be afraid to recycle your wardrobe.”
The Duchess leads by example by again wearing key pieces at major events throughout the year, showing how to change the style of a piece to create a whole new look.
In July this year, Kate made an appearance at Wimbledon to watch the women’s final from the Royal Box.

The Duchess even shows that she is not afraid to wear the most sparkling dresses again and again, such as an intricately jeweled white and gold dress designed by Alexander McQueen. She first wore the dress during a royal tour of Malaysia in 2012, before wearing it again later for the 2020 BAFTAS.
One of Kate’s best tricks is to simply swap out accessories to completely transform a look. The future queen consort was photographed at a large royal family gathering wearing a stunning emerald green Catherine Walker coat.
She was first spotted wearing the coat for a trip to Ireland in March 2020. However, the simple addition of black fur trim, black boots and leather gloves helped turn the coat into a garment. perfect for a festive outdoor gathering in December this year. .
Miranda added: “We all know the damage fast fashion does to the planet, so let’s be like Kate. Buy less, buy better and have fun buying clothes you love and finding new ways to wear them. “
Kate isn’t the only royal known for her love of upcycling outfits. Miranda previously told Express.co.uk that Queen Consort Camilla Parker Bowles was “probably the royal who reuses her clothes the most”.
Miranda explained, “She’s incredibly cheeky about it, which I find wonderful. But it’s very typical of Camilla not caring what everyone thinks.”
It’s a style lesson passed on to royal women by Queen Elizabeth II herself.
“Sometimes the queen has done things again,” Miranda explained. “But it would be recorded, logged and organised. Angela Kelly, the Queen’s stylist, is so incredibly organized with military precision that they would know exactly what was worn and with what accessories.”
