Head of the Class! The Duchess of Cambridge looked ready for a day playing pupil at the University College London. Kate was acting as royal scholar as she sought to learn more about early childhood development for her ongoing legacy project.

For the visit, Kate recycled a midi from her closet–a plaid printed dress from Zara. The budget friendly high collar dress with a neck tie is not unlike some of the other pussybow blouses in her closet.

Once upon a time, pre-duchess Kate was frequently spotted shopping at Zara in London.

The plaid print dress is currently sold out but a few remain on eBay.

Kate finished the look with her Hugo Boss pumps.

She also wore her Mappin & Webb Empress earrings.

And added her Cartier Ballon bleu watch.
