Kate Middleton has committed the cardinal sin of re-wearing a designer coat more than once - and some Americans can't believe it.

Page Six ran an article this week with the headline Kate Middleton wears favourite blue Alexander McQueen coat for fourth time.

Maybe she'll recycle that too? Watch this space.
