The Duchess of Cambridge has worn her first recycled dress of the Caribbean tour as she and Prince William waved goodbye to Jamaica

The royal couple boarded a plane en-route to the Bahamas for the final leg of the tour, which ends on Saturday.

At the airport, Kate wore a stunning green Emilia Wickstead dress that she previously wore just last year on a visit to Wimbledon.

Pinned to the dress was an incredible brooch on loan from the Queen, which shows a hummingbird.

The brooch was a gift to the Queen from Jamaica in 2002 – her Golden Jubilee year.

As William and Kate climbed aboard their RAF Voyager plane, they waved to those gathered before flying on to the Bahamas.

Earlier in the day, William and Kate echoed the Queen and Prince Philip as they attended their final engagement in Jamaica.

The couple were at a passing out parade of the Jamaican Defense Force, where Prince William inspected service personnel from across the Caribbean who have recently completed the Caribbean Military Academy’s Officer Training Programme.

Kate looked elegant in a white lace McQueen dress with matching white heels and a hat by milliner Philip Treacy as she sat in the stands with dignitaries to watch the parade.

William, who inspected the officers before joining Kate in the stands, wore the topical dress of the Blues and Royals for the event.

When the event was over, they traveled away in the same open-top Land Rover that transported William’s grandparents in Jamaica on their visits to the Caribbean Island in 1966 and 1994.

The Queen and Prince Philip also visited Jamaica in 1953 when they traveled in another Land Rover and greeted school children.

William also gave a speech at the event, where he talked about “good leadership” and paid a direct tribute to the Queen.

He said: “As Catherine and I visit Jamaica in celebration of The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, I thought I might quote my grandmother on the subject.

“In an address to the United Nations General Assembly in 2010, she said: ‘I know of no single formula for success, but over the years I have observed that some attributes of leadership are universal, and are often about finding ways of encouraging people to combine their efforts, their talents, their insights, their enthusiasm and their inspiration, to work together.’

“I think that’s a very good model to follow.”
