Kate rocks re-cycled dress as William dons green velvet suit at Earthshot awards

Eco-savvy Kate Middleton wowed crowds with a recycled dress at the Earthshot awards tonight, as her husband Prince William rocked a velvet green suit jacket.

The royal pair gathered to campaign on environmental issues, with the Duke of Cambridge calling for society to "unite in repairing our planet".

Based in north London’s Alexandra Palace, the inaugural awards saw Kate rock a dress originally made for her in 2011, reports The Sun.

Her re-used lilac gown was from Alexander McQueen and paired with a stunning gold beaded waistband.

It’s also not the first outing for William’s velvet green suit jacket, and he wore it two years ago at the centrepoint 50th Anniversary Gala at the Roundhouse.

Tonight, the prince’s flashy garment was paired with a black turtleneck and inconspicuous black trousers.

The environmental event sparked a rare Tweet from Prince Charles, who gushed on the social media platform that he was “very proud” of his son’s fight against climate change.

He also urged everyone to "come together to inspire, reimagine and build the sustainable future we so desperately need".

The Earthshot event will crown five winners in different categories, who will be rewarded for their green innovations with £1 million every year until 2030.

It has brought together a wide range of A-list stars – with Sir David Attenborough as a judge, Ed Sheeran and KSI as performers, and Liverpool FC forward Mo Salah giving out the awards.

The palace has been moving away from the royal protocol of avoiding their opinion in public, and just a few days ago William hit out at space tourism.

He told the BBC: "We need some of the world's greatest brains and minds fixed on trying to repair this planet, not trying to find the next place to go and live."

In a few weeks, the Queen, the Cambridges and the Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall will all go to the Cop26 UN climate change conference in Glasgow as they continue their green campaign.
