The Duchess of Cambridge re-modelled the top of the gown and again wore it in March 2019 at NPG Gala.

The original version of the gown has an off-shoulder bodice. The new version has cap sleeves added to it.

I believe the whole bodice of the gown has been changed. You can see the difference in the bodice on the picture. The old bodice has different flower printing placements than the new one.
