Reduce, reuse, recycle!

As the sensible princess, Kate Middleton is a big fan of recycling her clothes. Today was no exception! The Alexander McQueen lover (if you recall her iconic wedding dress was by the label) wore a notable McQueen ensemble during a visit to Bletchley Park in England on Wednesday. But this isn't the first time the Duchess has worn this edgy look. Kate the Great first wore the military-inspired ensemble back in 2011 when she visited the Summerfield Community Centre in Birmingham.

She's so thrifty with the people of England's money!

Wearing the memorable look, the duchess once gain looked fab in her white double-breasted top and navy skirt from Alexander McQueen's Pre-Fall 2011 collection. Not to be too daring, Middleton kept the crisp look classic clutch and a pair of navy heels.

We can't help but love this dazzling duchess!

The royals certainly are mad hatters!

Kate Middleton, Prince Charles and other members of the British Royal Family joined Queen Elizabeth at Windsor Castle for the annual Order of the Garter ceremony on Monday -- and in true British form they were some funny hats on their heads!

For the ceremony, the Duchess of Cambridge wore a powder blue Christopher Kane coat dress and a Lock & Co. fascinator (that's British talk for fancy lady hats).

The Order of the Garter was founded by Edward III in 1348 and is the oldest British order of chivalry. At the event, more than 7,000 spectators watched the Garter Knights process through the castle grounds to St. George's Chapel.

The Order of the Garter event takes place every June on the Monday of Royal Ascot week, also known as Garter Day. During the event, the knights wear blue velvet robes and black velvet hats with white plumes.

Prince William and Kate Middleton wrapped up their three-week tour of New Zealand and Australia on Thursday. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge attended a reception at the Government House in the capital of Canberra on the last night of their visit Down Under

Kate concluded the tour with a bang in one of her most fashionable outfits of the vacation. She wore an ivory Lela Rose dress with cap eyelet sleeves and matching sheer eyelet peplum. She pulled her hair back to complete the sophisticated look.

Earlier that day, the couple visited the National Portrait Gallery where Kate stunned in an emerald green Catherine Walker coat dress.

During the stop at the Parliament House, William joked that baby George gained a lot from the trip thanks to the flurry of stuffed animals that he's been gifted.

"Reluctantly, Catherine, George and I leave Australia tomorrow," he said. "Thank you for the warmth and generosity that has been shown to us during our visit. We go away with wonderful memories and George goes away with his cuddly wombat, which he has taken to chewing so lovingly. We greatly look forward to coming back. And when we do return, it will be to marvel again at all that Australia is and will yet become."

Hopefully, they'll also marvel at the U.S. again soon.

Seriously -- we didn't think we could possibly love Kate Middleton any more than we already did -- and then this photo of her planting a tree with children comes out. Now our hearts explode a bit more.

On Thursday, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge visited the National Arboretum, the site of a bushfire in 2003. During the step, Kate visited with local children, planted an oak Tree and did it all while looking absolutely fabulous.

Today is the last day of the the Royals' three-week tour of Australia and New Zealand. Currently, the Brits are making several stops through the Australian capital of Canberra. Say it ain't so!

For the tree-planting, the 32-year-old showed off her green thumb outwardly with an emerald green Catherine Walker coat dress.

The Duke and Duchess had all eyes on them when they later made a stop at the Parliament House, where Prince William made a speech reflecting on their trip with their son Prince George.

"Reluctantly, Catherine, George and I leave Australia tomorrow," William said. "Thank you for the warmth and generosity that has been shown to us during our visit. We go away with wonderful memories, and George goes away with his cuddly wombat, which he has taken to chewing so lovingly. We greatly look forward to coming back. And when we do return, it will be to marvel again at all that Australia is, and will yet become."

Oh my gosh -- we love Prince William's British wit! But what we will miss most about the lack of daily photos of the young family -- that adorable Prince George!

Finally, a stop Prince George could enjoy on the international Royal Tour.

Kate Middleton and Prince William took their tot to the Taronga Zoo in Sydney, Australia on Sunday. The family attended the opening of the Prince George Bilby Exhibit so their eight-month-old met the Bilby that was named after him, naturally.

George was delighted to see the Australian marsupial, which is now on the verge of extinction. However, he was unimpressed with the plush version of the animal that the zookeeper gave him as a gift. When George couldn't play with the real creature, who he tried to grab, he grew grumpy and threw the toy that was given to him in place of the Bilby on the ground.

"He's trying to grab his ear," Kate told the zookeeper about her feisty son. "He's got quite a strong grab actually."

George later met koala bears and kangaroos that he was less eager to grab.

Life's a beach when you are the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge!

On yet another stop during their tour of Australia, the Duke and Duchess visited Manly Beach in Sydney. Prince William and Kate looked like they were having some fun when went to see the work and training done by the Surf Beach Lifeguards.

We can't tell a lie -- we are a little disappointed they aren't in their bathing suits!

Prior to their beach stop, the royals cheered up some young kids when they visited Bear Cottage, which the only children's hospice in New South Wales.

For the day's events, Kate wore a lace dress by Aussie label Zimermann with nude wedges. We are impressed she kept them on even on the sand!

It turns out the Prince has some thoughts about his duchess' fashion choices. Speaking on the yellow Roksanda Illinic dress she wore for her flight to Australia, Kate joked to reporters, “William said I look like a banana.”
