The Duchess of Sussex is going Double Dutch on her outfits, wearing them not just once but at least twice.

Meghan Markle was spotted wearing clothes from her pregnancy days with her firstborn Archie. And clearly, she knows no shame about wearing maternity clothes after birth. Because, why not?

Royal reporter Elizabeth Holmes applauded Meghan Markle for her "extremely thought out repeats," posting on Instagram how amazed she was at the restyling Markle does. She adds that the newest member of the royalty "sends an incredible message" for repeating a dress from pregnancy.

Other royal fans also praised Markle for not giving in to the pressure to lose the baby weight right after giving birth. Fans love how Markle gets real about not being a size-two immediately and "owning her post-baby body" and "embracing" it  at whatever stage it is.

Most importantly, royal fans noted how the Duchess of Sussex "puts the focus on the causes she supports and not on the clothes."

The Duchess Goes for a Low-Key Vibe Post Birth

The first-time mom is going for a style that's "extremely low-key vibe," which translates even to her engagement ring that she swapped for a minimal Jennifer Meyer ring.

She clearly makes the most of her expensive clothing, which is admirable.

Markle apparently shares sentiments with other influencers when it comes to "giving statement pieces much-deserved attention with plenty of outings."

Weeks before her wedding, Markle wore a £1,315 Stella McCartney dress without being afraid to wear it again to her royal wedding reception. It quickly became a closet favorite, as she was seen donning the same dress for the celebration of the Queen's 92nd birthday.

Months later, she wore it yet again -- this time at the opening ceremony of the Sydney Invictus Games.

She Loves a Good Button Down Dress

Markle wore her £465 Veronica Beard shirtdress at her second royal engagement at the District Six Museum.

It was a dress which was a part of her maternity style when she was pregnant with baby Archie. She was last seen wearing the sky blue button-down dress when she went on a royal visit to Tonga.

She Plays with Her Hairstyle

The Duchess of Sussex looks glowing with her hair tied back as she donned her maternity clothes after giving birth. However, she does let her wavy locks down when she wears something more simple and pairs them with classy gold earrings.

Markle also styles her hair in a bun for a classy and effortless style, knowing that "how you wear your hair has a maximum impact on how others perceive it."

She Belts Her Maternity Dresses

A great tip for wearing loose dresses post-partum is to add a belt to your style, and Markle knows that. Her belted shirt dress is now tightened to cling more to her shape while still giving her room to heal post-pregnancy.

She Tones Down on the Accessories

Even when you're a royal, "less is more" still applies.

Markle's Martin Grant striped maxi dress came out of public eye once again at the British High Commissioner's Residence after she wore it first at Bondi Beach last autumn. The £1,080 striped dress was paired with simple statement earrings.

She Goes for Plain than Printed

For her to keep repeating the same clothes, Markle opts for timeless classics like a khaki dress she wore as a new mum at a polo match. After that. she used it again during a Skype conference to the women at Nalikule College of Education.

Take your cue from Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle and re-wear your favorite pieces from your pregnancy days and love your body all the way!
