Take the very on-theme nautical Alexander McQueen look she wore Friday to visit to Land Rover BAR, Britain's sailing team, of which she's a patron.
Kate came under some criticism from royal watchers in 2011 when she first wore the nearly $3,000 ensemble (the shoes were Prada) to visit people rebuilding in riot-torn communities in Birmingham, England. She wore it again to more festive events in 2014 and on Friday, so there's no denying her repeat prowess.
Many of us, meanwhile, are repeating more affordable outfits. But when it comes to things like hair ties and funny faces, for example, the media phenomenon formerly known as Kate Middleton is pretty much just like us.
When Kate went for a sail with Olympic gold medalist and sailing team founder Ben Ainslie, everyone on board took a moment (or in Kate's case, two or three) to put safety first and strap on a helmet. And as anyone who has ever put on a helmet solo knows, it can take a few tries to get it on just right.
Here's how we're going to pretend it all went down:
"Hey, uhh, you guys? I think I did this wrong."
"Yeah. I for sure did this wrong."
"Hey man, could you help me out with this?"
"Oh I see what you did here, you've got the straps tangled."
"Oof, this is a doozy! How'd you manage this one?"
"All better now. Thanks!"
Such a rough day at work.
