Kate’s kicks! Duchess wore TWO pairs of lookalike boots on her Cumbria tour – after swapping her £250 designer favourites for practical walking lace-ups
- Duchess of Cambridge, 37, joined Prince William, 36, in Cumbria yesterday
- Kate arrived in the town of Keswick wearing a £275 jacket and Gap jeans
- She finished the look with a favourite pair of £250 boots by See By Chloé
- For later engagements Kate swapped the shoes for a £155 pair by Berghaus
The Duchess of Cambridge had a quick shoe change as she carried out engagements in Cumbria yesterday.
Kate, 37, arrived in the market town of Keswick in £250 boots by See By Chloé, but later swapped the designer lace-ups for a more practical pair by Berghaus for an afternoon on a rural farm.
Both pairs were almost exactly the same colour and shape but the subtle difference was spotted by eagle-eyed royal watchers, including Instagram account Middleton Maven.

The Duchess of Cambridge struck just the right style note as she joined Prince William in Cumbria yesterday.
The royal dressed down in a pair of black skinny jeans, believed to be from Gap, and wrapped up against the unseasonably chilly weather in a £275 green utility jacket by Taylor London, a new addition to the royal wardrobe.
The mother-of-three finished the look with her trusty brown suede See By Chloé boots, which feature leather trim detailing on a round-toe, lace-up base.
Kate has worn them twice this year already, including for a visit to a community garden in north London in January, and to the Scouts London headquarters in March.

Helping hand! The Duchess of Cambridge got stuck in and helped shear sheep during a visit to Deepdale Hall Farm in Patterdale, Cumbria, while wearing the boots yesterday afternoon
On both outings she paired the boots with similar outfits to her one yesterday.
But while the boots were perfect for her walkabout on the cobbled streets of Keswick’s Market Square, the Duchess clearly felt she needed something a little more durable for her visit to Deepdale Hall Farm in Patterdale later that day.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge helped the Brown family tend to their chores, shearing the flock of Herdwick and Swaledale sheep and helping to repair a dry stone wall on the estate.

The couple also joined the Cumbria Wildlife Trust on a nature walk through the farm and took in the view of the stunning countryside.
The more hands-on engagements required a sturdier shoe and Kate slipped on the £155 Women’s Supalite II Gor Tex boots by outdoor brand Berghaus.
The shoes, designed for everything from a ‘coastal trail’ to a ‘hike in the hills’, proved the perfect choice for stomping over the hills.
