Thrifty Kate wears same white Reiss dress worn for official engagement portrait by Mario Testino
The Duchess of Cambridge paid tribute to Canada today with a red and white outfit for the second day of the Royal Tour.
Wearing a red hat by her favourite milliner Sylvia Fletcher at Lock & Co. sporting the country's national symbol, a maple leaf, Kate attended a citizenship ceremony with her husband Prince William.
She also wore a diamond brooch in the shape of the leaf, borrowed from the Queen.

The Queen, then Princess Elizabeth, wore the brooch during her first visit to Canada in 1951.
Kate also recycled the white Reiss dress that she wore for her official engagement portrait, shot by Mario Testino.
The £159 Nanette sold out almost immediately and again when it was re-released a few weeks later.

Fans wait to catch a glimpse of the Royal couple
She accessorised this time with an on-trend Anya Hindmarch tan and choral clutch, in the shape of a fan.
The Duchess was in good company as many in the crowd also wore the national colours.
As part of the tour, the couple will hand out flags newly minted Canadians at the ceremony during their nine-day visit before jetting off to Los Angeles.
The young prince and his wife have star power to burn and Canadian Heritage Minister James Moore reckons this will be one will be the most-watched royal tour in Canada's history.
