Kate Middleton Wore Favorite L.K. Bennett Nude Pumps to Christening
She knows what she likes! Kate Middleton accessorized her stunning cream-colored ensemble with her favorite pair of pumps at son Prince George's christening at St. James' Palace on Wednesday, Oct. 23. The 31-year-old Duchess of Cambridge carefully carried the heir to the British throne out of the Chapel Royal wearing a pair of off-white "Sledge" pumps by L.K. Bennett.
The British brand's stylish heels paired perfect with Middleton's Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen dress and matching fascinator. Prince William's wife has been spotted wearing the same shoes many times before including cousin Zara Philips' wedding in 2011 and during the couple's North American tour that same year.
In March 2012, Middleton's go-to footwear choice became available at Nordstrom and norstrom.com for stateside shoppers. The 4-inch heels with a 1/2-inch platform retailed for $325.
Not only did the nude pumps match the rest of Middleton's ensemble perfectly on Wednesday, but they also coordinated with Prince George's christening gown. The adorable 3-month-old little boy wore a white satin and Honiton lace robe, which was a replica of the one created for Victoria, Princess Royal, back in 1841. The replica was commissioned by Queen Elizabeth II in 2008 in order to "preserve the original," which is now on display at the Museum of London.
