Kate Middleton had royal fans doing a double take on Monday as she stepped out in a red Catherine Walker coat dress that looked very familiar.

The royal mom of three memorably first wore the ensemble in April 2014 during her tour Down Under with Prince William and Prince George, who was around 9 months old at the time.

The royal decided to rewear the red coat dress, which features button details and a classic collar, for Commonwealth Day services at Westminster Abbey on Monday. Instead of the pillbox hat she wore in 2014, Kate wore a matching red fascinator.
