Kate Middleton was bright in a yellow blazer with a white top, yellow pants and her go-to Veja sneakers for a visit to The Dame Kelly Holmes Trust during Mental Health Awareness Week on May 16. The yellow hue was likely a nod to the youth charity's signature shade — a fresh take on flag dressing.

In what might be a new uniform, Princess Kate wore a white tweed blazer with matching top, navy trousers and sporty sneakers to congratulate Captain Preet Chandi on her record-setting expedition in Antarctica.

The Princess of Wales served as royal patron of the mission, and joined "Polar Preet" for school visit on Feb. 8 — where she bravely tried pulling tires like the explorer tugged her sled across the icy continent.

Look familiar? Princess Kate's power outfit at the Coronation Concert was a royal repeat from earlier this year! The Princess of Wales was unmissable in the glamorous red crepe pantsuit at the launch of her Shaping Us campaign in London on Jan. 30 — and the confident color was no coincidence.

"She was wearing that suit for the launch of an initiative that is her passion project — red is the color of passion, it was a big moment on her CV," fashion expert Bethan Holt told PEOPLE at the time.
