Kate Middleton recycles stunning Jenny Packham dress that she wore SIX years ago… and fans are saying it's their 'favourite ever' look

The mum-of-three, 36, previously wore the floor-length dress back in 2012, and made a glamorous appearance wearing it today at the Tusk Conservation Awards.

The first time she wore the dress with lace cap sleeves and Swarovski beaded belt, the Duchess of Cambridge wore her hair in a chic chignon up-do, but this time kept her trademark locks flowing.

She paired the stunning plunge gown with a matching turquoise clutch and her show-stopping engagement ring.

Kate also recycled the £450 “Vamp” sandals from Jimmy Choo that she wore the first time she wore the dress.

Previously, she wore the daring teal dress for the 2012 Our Greatest Team Rises – BOA Olympic Concert held at London's Royal Albert Hall and looked just as sensational today as she did back then.

The Duchess is a huge fan of Jenny Packham gowns, and presented all three of her children to the world while wearing the label.

Royal fans were quick to take to Twitter to share how incredible Kate looked tonight in the dazzling green ballgown.

One wrote: “This teal Jenny Packham dress is one of my absolute favorites of Kate's.”

Another gushed: “Also, at that place in my life where I see the dress that Kate Middleton wore tonight and screeched in my head SHE REWORE _THE_ DRESS. MY FAVORITE JENNY PACKHAM.”

The Duchess is said to have a close working relationship with the designer, stepping out for her first state banquet, the BAFTAs, an Olympic concert, film premieres, and tours in Japan and India while wearing one of her creations.

Kate Middleton isn’t the only star to be a fan of the luxury label, with Jenny Packham counting notable faces including Angelina Jolie, Blake Lively, Taylor Swift, Kate Hudson, Jennifer Lopez and Oprah among her clients too.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge appeared to be high spirits as they arrived at London's Banqueting House, where Prince William will make a speech and deliver three awards.

It’s a special night for Prince William, who became a Royal Patron of Tusk in December 2005.

He’s frequently supported the organisation, which aims to promote conservation and fight illegal wildlife trade.

The Tusk Trust was established in 1990 at the height of the previous poaching crisis, when thousands of elephants and rhinos were slaughtered.

Prince William said: “Africa's wildlife is suffering as well as its people.

“Like so many others, I am deeply saddened by the numbers of elephant, rhino and pangolin who have been illegally slaughtered for their tusks, horns and scales. But the illegal wildlife trade also has a devastating human impact.

“Too many brave rangers are tragically killed each year by poachers. Communities see their tourist livelihoods threatened. And the proceeds of the illegal wildlife trade fund broader criminal networks and threaten security.

“This is why I am committed to doing what I can to help end this terrible, global crime. This will be a particular focus of my upcoming visit to Africa, and of course the conference on the illegal wildlife trade taking place here in London in October.”

Kate Middleton is back in business after taking six months off for maternity leave.

Recently she stepped out for her first public engagement following the birth of her third child, Prince Louis.

We shared her sweet reply when a little girl asked why people were taking her photo at the Sayers Croft Forest School and Wildlife Garden at Paddington Recreation Ground in West London.
