“She’s so down-to-earth!” is the resounding response I get when I blog about the Duchess of Cambridge, neé Kate Middleton, wearing a maternity outfit she wore when she was pregnant with Prince George, in 2013. And look, she’s done it again—yay for deja vù!

Remember the first time Kate wore this $265 Hobbs Dalmation print dress? It was at the Princess Cruises’ ship-naming ceremony at Ocean Terminal, June 13, 2013, in Southampton, England.

And here she is wearing it again, on Tuesday, March 10, 2015—just two days after the royal family’s Westminster Abbey event (to which she wore another famous “recycled” dress)—on a solo visit to the Turner Contemporary Art Gallery in Margate, England.

Busy Duchess, indeed, so soon before baby arrives, in April.

At the gallery, Kate spoke with painters and sculptors featured in the current exhibition, Self: Image and Identity. A patron of the UK’s National Portrait Gallery, Kate’s primary purpose was to view the final self-portrait by Sir Anthony van Dyck, which is a new addition to the gallery.

The Duchess also spent time with kids from local schools Holy Trinity and St. John’s, as they participated in an art project in the gallery. Of course, she joined in on the project, as she often does.

We did get a little tidbit on George from this event, too: Kate told a fellow mom that George is “running around” a lot, and suggested the 19-month-old is quite a handful!

Kate’s next stop, later in the day, was Resort Studios in Cliftonville, Margate, to check out their photomontage exhibition and to discuss the community efforts of the artists in residence.
