Throughout the pandemic, Kate Middleton has won praise for making the most of her existing gorgeous wardrobe rather than buying new clothes for royal appearances.

This includes the Duchess of Cambridge’s latest outfit, chosen for a video to launch the results of her ‘5 Big Questions’ early years survey this week.

In a post on Instagram shared on Saturday, the mother-of-three, 38, can be seen wearing a purple pussy-bow blouse from Gucci as she answers questions from fans about the project.

She first donned the stunning piece to visit the Henry Fawcett Children's Centre in London’s Lambeth in March 2019.

In the new clip, the duchess – who reads questions off an iPhone while sat on a sofa – pairs the blouse with a similar swishy blow-dry and natural make-up as before.

During the Q&A, the royal mum was asked how she handles "toddler tantrums" at home, with her three young children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.

The duchess – whose youngest is just two years old – replied: "Yes, that’s a hard one. I’d also like to ask the experts myself!"

She was also questioned about how she became interested in the early years sector, and explained: “This isn’t just about happy, healthy children. This is about the society I hope we could and can become.

“Right from the early days, meeting lots of people who are suffering with addiction or poor mental health and hearing time and time again that their troubles now in adulthood stem right back from early childhood experience."

The video, which has been viewed more than two million times, has gone down well with social media users.

One wrote: “How beautiful and how smart the duchess is!”

Another commented: “Kate is really doing a great job! So proud of her.”

Earlier this week, another video was shared of the duchess thanking “families, and parents, and carers, for the important work you do every single day in raising our children”.

In the clip – unveiled today on Instagram – she can be seen wearing another repeat outfit, a blush-pink blazer jacket.

The royal was previously seen donning the same ensemble during the first lockdown in late March when she visited NHS 111 staff with husband Prince William.

At the time, it was revealed that the suit, made from Italian wool blend fabric, was from Marks & Spencer’s Autograph collection.
