In news that should surprise no one, Kate Middleton has recycled yet another look. This time its a red L.K. Bennett coat, worn during today's Poppy Day event with husband Prince William.

The outerwear was the same Ami coat—from the brand's 2011 fall collection—that she donned to the exact same event two years prior.

Technically, the head-to-toe look wasn't identical though. This year, the Duchess of Cambridge ditched the oversize patent-leather red belt she cinched her waist with in 2011 and instead just opted for the simple wool belt that comes with the coat.

She also left her black suede knee-high boots at Kensington Palace (where we're guessing Prince George was as well) and went with black stockings and matching pumps. Coincidentally, the heels were, in fact, suede. Perhaps the temperatures hadn't dropped to boot levels yet.

Which coat style do you like best?
