Kate Middleton Wears Rupert Sanderson For Second Time In A Week

Kate Middleton stepped out today in Rupert Sanderson’s “Malory” navy suede pumps for the second time this week — and the latest occasion was to celebrate the sport of sailing.

The Duchess of Cambridge also recycled an Alexander McQueen blouse to an event to support 1851 Trust, a charity that uses sailing and the marine industry to educate and inspire young people. She later changed into a waterproof suit to go sailing with Olympian Ben Ainslie.

Middleton wore the designer’s pumps on Monday — with a graphic Banana Republic skirt — to the Heads Together event. The gathering brought together representatives of the U.K.’s leading mental health charities to encourage people to speak about their mental health issues. Prince William and Prince Harry were also on hand to promote the cause, which all three are fiercely passionate about.

Middleton wore the shoes twice at Kensington Palace recently. And last month, she paired the style with an L.K. Bennett dress for dinner with William, Harry and the Obamas.

Sanderson recently told FN how honored he was to have Middleton don the style. “It is a nice and privileged thing to quietly be able to do, to make a pair of shoes for the future Queen of England,” the designer said.
