Why Kate Middleton Changed Shoes 3 Times to Bid Canada Farewell

The refrain is true: All good things come in threes.

For her third outfit change of the day, Kate Middleton made a stylish departure from Canada on Saturday after enjoying an eight-day royal tour of the country with her husband, Prince William, and their children, Prince George, 3, and Princess Charlotte, 1.

Wearing the same L.K. Bennett Fern nude pumps she rocked on Tuesday, the Duchess of Cambridge and the royal family bid farewell to revelers as they boarded a flight at Victoria Harbour Airport in the British Columbia province.

As usual, Princess Charlotte and Prince George looked precious. Charlotte had on Spanish brand Dona Carmen’s burgundy Mary Janes that featured a scalloped vamp, and George wore navy Start-rite “John” laceups (available online for around $71 at the current exchange rate).

Middleton teamed her go-to heels with a tailored cream-colored coat. It was the third outfit of the day after meeting with two charity organizations earlier.

Earlier in the afternoon, she and William toured Victoria Harbour with the Sail and Life Training Society — an organization that teaches life skills through sailing. For the occasion she opted to wear a new pair of sneakers from Superga.

The white 2750 Classic style from the Italian brand retails for $65 online.

Middleton styled the fresh kicks with a thick green coat and kept on the same black trousers she wore for her first appearance of the day at the Cridge Centre for the Family, a charity that provides economic and financial support services for needy children and families.

While meeting with organizers and greeting fans, she had on a chic white blazer by Zara and a pair of retro-looking J.Crew heels that retail for $278 online.

Taking to Twitter, Prince William and Middleton expressed gratitude for being able to enjoy the trip as a family.

“We feel very lucky to have been able to introduce George and Charlotte to Canada,” the couple shared. “This country will play a big part in their lives. We have created such happy memories for our children during this visit.”
