Oh the horror! A duchess wore the same thing twice…

Oh the horror! A duchess wore the same thing twice…

Roll your eyes now. Out of everything the region is going through, the media have their pick of stories. Yet somehow, EB24/7 chooses to pick on a royal’s sensible wardrobe choice.

Do you remember what you wore exactly week ago? How about a month ago? Now try two years. Well if you were royalty, you won’t have to remember because media like the Daily Mail and subsequently Emirates 24/7 will do it for you.

These two titles—one of them voted as the second most popular newspaper in the world (guess which one it is—have caught Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, wear a dress she has already donned for another function in 2009.

According to EB24/7, Kate is “now following an older royal tradition – recycling favourite garments.”

Stop the press!

Seriously? Is this news? Kipp can’t imagine a slow day that would prompt us to highlight that someone—no matter if they’re a celebrity or a blue blood—wore something twice, especially when it was two years apart.

Unless, EB24/7 is trying to encourage its readers to continue to glorify consumerism by using recycling clothes as some kind of status symbol? Reverse psychology, right?

Please people, during these times of turmoil, it’s good to have a laugh and lighten up. But not with something as inane and, frankly, mind-numbing as this is.

    That news is soooooon lame to report ! Let her wear it a million times. The Royals have to cut their costs down becoz their income is out of tax layers who are struggling in times as these while the country they live in and the rest of the world is undergoing recession and cost cuts.
