The Duchess of Cambridge is the queen of outfit repeating. So her latest duty, helping to officially open a charity consignment shop, is especially fitting.  

The "thrifty" royal -- you may remember her as Kate Middleton -- marked the opening of East Anglia's Children's Hospices' newest shop in Norfolk Friday wearing a blue Missoni coat she's worn three times before since debuting it in 2012 for, you guessed it, a visit to another store.

Paired with a blue dress that fan sites identified as Zara, the duchess, who is royal patron of the charity, participated in a ribbon cutting ceremony. In true girl-after-our-own-hearts form, she made the store's very first purchase. 

The EACH charity shops, which have locations across east England, benefit children facing life-threatening issues and their families.
