The difference is obviously the fact that our wardrobes aren't as splendid as theirs! Take a look at the outfits and the items members of the royal family (past and present) recycled for different appearances. Let's decide which look was better!

ROYALS RESTYLED 

Recycling certain outfits may just be one of the very few similarities that we share with royal figures around the world. No matter where they go or what they do, the press is always there to malign or marvel at the fashion choices, the involuntary wardrobe icons make when they step out.

REMARKABLE RE-WEARS 

More often than not, however, they manage to throw caution to the wind, make a human decision, and rock an item we've seen them in before. Here are some of the better and some of the more famous examples of royals who've done that over the past fashionable years.

A GLOBETROTTING TREND 

The trend isn't just reserved for the British royal family only. Several royals from Spain, Denmark, and Monaco, seem to do the exact same thing. Because true fashion and style isn't that time or date-specific, and there is no styling item intended to work and coordinate with a single set of clothing either.

MEGHAN MARKLE 

Though she may technically no longer be classified as a royal, Meghan Markle did a marvelous job in her time in the royal limelight to show off her style in the public eye. But, every now and then, she did dig back in her wardrobe to re-wear some killer outfits with flawless results.

THE NAVY BLAZER 

Meghan Markle triggered several headlines when she appeared in her Alexander McQueen pantsuit to the Endeavour Fund Awards in February. She then reused that same blazer with a fashionable floral dress the brightened up the look. Either style worked when draped over the shoulders of the stunning and always stylish actress if we're honest.

RE-MARKLEBLE RE-WEARS

No matter what the situation is, she knew when was the perfect time to reemerge with an item she had worn before. It wasn't just in sweet dresses that she managed to pull this off; it was also in stunning coats that she recycled to show off some remarkable results.

TRENDY TROUSERS 

Is there a more fashion-forward figure in the modern royal era that dresses like Meghan? In these images, she rocked a pair of wide-leg black trousers by Veronica Beard while attending her second official royal engagement with Prince Harry. Just a few weeks later, she was captured in the same trousers on a visit to Edinburgh. Her fits are very similar in both images!

PRINCESS DIANA 

The undefeated fashionable Princess Diana was a trendsetting royal who stirred controversy as much as she stunned the cameras, sometimes she did both those things all at once. So, it's no surprise she basically started the recycling trend that many others followed, and she did it phenomenally in the name of fashion.

FASHIONABLE IN FLORAL 

The late and lovely Lady Diana restyled her clothes more often than any other royal that comes to mind. In the images below, she wore a striking floral gown to meet the president of Nigeria. Two years later, she had it expertly redesigned as she wore the same dress with a different skirt to a banquet in Seoul, South Korea.

KATE MIDDLETON 

Catherine has been able to cause awe with her bold fashion choices, but the British beauty has also been able to do so whenever she brings back some older looks to the forefront. It's her disarming darling effect she brings to the table that simply never misses the moment she steps out in a repeated outfit.

SKY BLUE COAT ON A CLOUDY DAY 

The Duchess of Cambridge stepped out in this cozy blue cashmere Seraphine coatdress for the opening of the new Kensington Leisure Centre in London in 2015. A coat that looks that good can't possibly be worn once, especially when you consider the gloomy London weather. So, naturally, she wore it again three years later! It was still the perfect look.

PRINCESS ANNE 

Princess Anne has been in the public eye longer than most of us realize. And it's understandable that she would have a routine when it comes to some of the clothes she pulls out of an already astounding wardrobe that many have been inspired by as time has gone on. She was and still is a true fashion icon for the decades!

THE CREAM COAT FOR THE CAMERAS 

Princess Anne proved that some looks and some items are simply timeless. She was captured dawning this lovely cream and navy coat for the 2018 Commonwealth Day. But the press could pick out the fact that it wasn't the first time that she had been seen in this elegant fit. She had worn it as expertly and perfectly 32 years prior as well. Have a look below...

THE DARLING DIANA 

Diana, as we said, was a daring darling of the world that the press couldn't get enough off, and often to unfortunate ends. She was able and willing to make the same look work effortlessly, and she could add wonderful changes that completely elevated a look she had knocked out of the park before. We can't get enough of her forward fashion and style!

THE PRINCESS IN THE SAME PATTERNS 

When Diana loved an item that she wore, she didn't have to wait years before being seen in it again. She was a sophisticated type of shameless that made her a standout. In 1987, the Princess went to Portugal wearing this diagonally striped skirt and a black jacket on top. A couple of months later, in Cannes, she wore the same skirt wrapped in a white jacket instead!

PRINCESS MARY

MARY IN MOON

It seems she understands that we all can't get enough of it.

THE SPANIARD WITH STYLE

REPRISING ROYAL LOOKS 

She's never bothered to make a note of her repurposed looks either. The Queen focuses on the politics of running an efficient and fair country; fashion just happens to be another one of the things she dominates so flawlessly and pulls off so effortlessly. Well done, Queen Letizia!

BEIGE AT BASKETBALL 

No matter what the occasion, she makes it work better than anyone you could imagine rocking this look. The ruling brunette was pictured wearing head-to-toe Hugo Boss to the Spanish Queen's Cup final in Salamanca. She then decided that this look deserved a second take and decided to re-wear it in Lerma, with the elegant addition of a white jacket!

ANNE ALWAYS AWES

There is such a thing as generational fashion, and Princess Anne consistently circles the center of that realm. In a constant campaign to keep trendsetting and tradition alive, she's one of few who has a real purpose behind why she reappears in certain outfits that get the cameras clicking.

THE NOSTALGIC NAVY OUTFIT 

Princess Anne always manages to pull nostalgia right out of her expensive wardrobe. Here, she wears this plaid coat and skirt combo that she's relied on for years now. She wore the look with a stylish hat for a church service at Windsor Castle in 2003, and again in 2012 for the very same occasion. And both times, she absolutely owned the stunning look.
