Move over, Kate Middleton, there’s another royal family member who loves recycling outfits — Princess Eugenie! When the 27-year-old posed with her new fiancé, Jack Brooksbank, for their official engagement photos inside Buckingham Palace on Monday, January 22, royal fans couldn’t get enough of Eugenie’s chic dress. But, Closer Weekly has discovered that the princess has actually worn the frock twice before!
Back in June 2017, Eugenie donned the black, silk-organza number with embroidered flowers to a UNAIDS Gala in Basel, Switzerland. She also wore the Erdem dress — which retails for around $4,725 — during a 2016 interview with Harper’s Bazaar. At last year’s charity event, she additionally wore the black satin Jimmy Choo pumps that she stepped out in for her engagement portraits. So thrifty!

Just a few weeks before Eugenie and Jack announced their royal engagement, the princess’s cousin Prince Harry proposed to Meghan Markle. When the two posed for their engagement photos outside Kensington Palace on November 27, 2017, royal fans were quick to dissect Meghan’s outfit. For the photoshoot, the 36-year-old donned a stunning white coat over a dark green dress, cinched at the waist with a tie.
Back in 2010, Kate similarly took engagement photos with her now-husband, Prince William, but they posed inside St. James’s Palace. Since they opted to be indoors, Kate didn’t need a coat, so she let her royal blue Issa wrap dress shine. The best part of Kate’s outfit? Her frock perfectly matched her sapphire engagement ring, which previously belonged to William’s late mother, Princess Diana.
Just like Kate’s blue engagement ring complemented her engagement dress, Eugenie’s floral frock beautifully matched her pink-orange “lotus blossom” engagement ring from Jack. The bauble — which looks similar to her mom, Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York’s rock! — features a very unique padparadscha sapphire surrounded by diamonds. Though Kate, Meghan, and Eugenie rocked different looks for their official engagement photoshoots, the three ladies are all stunning. We can’t wait to see Meghan and Eugenie on their wedding days later this year!
