The Duchess of Cambridge had three outfits changes yesterday (Sunday 13th), but she's changed again, as on Day 8 of the royal tour she re-wore an old favourite - her red Luisa Spagnoli suit.
What Kate Wore spotted that this was the Luisa Spagnoli red dress and suit jacket which she wore on a visit to St. Andrews with Prince William in February 2011. This time she paired it with simple black courts and a black clutch bag to match the buttons and belt. As for her signature curls she had her hair pinned half up.
The activity on the royal agenda today was cricket, as the couple had a knockabout in Christchurch to publicise the Cricket World Cup. These two have been rather competitive on this tour, going head to head in a yacht competition and rugby coaching.

Kate didn't swap into trainers for the game but attempted to run accross the grass in her high heels. Impressive work. The Duchess said: 'The first ball was too high, a lot too high. My second ball was much better. He hit it, someone fielded it, no runs. I felt a bit better after that ball. He was pretty good.'
The couple also officially opened the visitors centre of the Botanic Gardens which was created in Christchurch in the aftermath of the earthquake in 2011. Prince William said in a speech: 'Here in Christchurch, I recall in 2011 hearing first hand about the courage of ordinary members of the public, first responders, the Student Army and many others in the aftermath of the devastating earthquakes. Both Catherine and I have found ourselves moved this morning by the reminders of how awful the second earthquake was, striking as it did out of the blue in the middle of an ordinary day.'
